As of May 24, 2023, I am no longer accepting new clients. Please contact my colleague Jennifer Munroe who also practices at Village Professional Services and is accepting new clients.
for Children, Youth & Families
I work with families and children as young as 3 years old to help them manage big feelings, work through interpersonal struggles, grow through transitions and stressful life events, cope with worries and sadness, and improve their self-concept and self esteem.
Common concerns that I can help address include:
- Social skills and peer relationships
- Family relationships
- Anger, aggression and outbursts
- Low self-esteem
- Attachment, adoption and foster care
We can work toward your goals through various evidence-based play therapy, talk therapy, or family therapy approaches; it would be tailored to your needs, preferences, and availability for in-person or virtual sessions.
My passion is providing psychotherapy services that make meaningful improvements in the lives of children and and families. I offer a safe, non-judgmental and child/family friendly space to explore challenges and improve thoughts, feelings, behaviours and relationships.
Your relationship with your therapist is one of the most important factors determining the success of therapy. It’s essential to find the right fit for you.
I take a child/family friendly approach that’s warm, approachable, and genuinely invested in the well-being of my clients. My strength is my ability to engage clients and to develop a treatment approach that’s collaborative and tailors intervention to each client’s needs and preferences.
I offer a free and confidential 20-minute ‘meet and greet’ appointment by phone or video session to introduce myself, review your concerns and provide an overview on how psychotherapy might help. There is absolutely no obligation to continue with services, but it’s a great opportunity to get to know each other and ensure we are a good fit to work together before a first session!
Land acknowledgement and reconciliation: I am an immigrant settler who lives and works on the unceded territory of the Anishinabewaki and Algonquin nations, the traditional stewards of these lands who were unfairly an unjustly affected by the Crawford Purchase of 1783. In the spirit of reconciliation, I recognize the historical and ongoing oppression of these lands and cultures, and honour the commitments to self-determination and sovereignty made to Indigenous Nations and Peoples. I commit to work toward reconciliation and abide by the Indigenous Peoples, Communities & Contexts section of CCPA’s Code of Ethics and Standards of Practice.-Monika Green
