Infant Mental Health is a highly specialized area of therapy which provides support for parents for a variety of concerns that they may have for their infant ages 0-5 years. This unique, evidence-based intervention utilizes the parent as the key facilitator of change for their infant utilizing videos of parent-child interactions.
At times, parents may find that their adolescent is experiencing roadblocks in one or more of the following areas: depression, anxiety, mood-swings, past trauma, behaviour problems, parent-teen conflict and major life changes (e.g., death of a loved one or divorce).
Children are each unique in their personalities, their way of expressing themselves and their view of the world. The child-focused and specially trained team at Sand Story pride ourselves on meeting each child at their level.
Support for adults is provided from a belief in the importance of relationship and the natural healing potential that we all have within us. A variety of evidence based therapeutic modalities are offered for a wide variety of presenting concerns.
A Psychoeducational Assessment is a detailed assessment of a child/teen/adult's psychological and academic skills. These assessments are typically completed when students are feeling overly challenged in an academic area.
When a family is going through separation or divorce, many parents have a difficult time agreeing on how to manage parenting time. A Section 211 Assessment or a Views of the Child Report can help inform families to resolve disputes.
