Child / Teen
As a mother of two teenagers, Gayle has first hand experience with the ebb and flow of this challenging stage of life.
Prior to having her own children, she was the coordinator of a juvenile diversion and emergency center to provide counselling for children and families. By working with these delinquent teens, Gayle discovered that what was needed was simply love.
Gayle has the ability to clearly remember what it's like to be a child, thus children feel safe and natural in her presence. She's skilled at tapping into a child's strengths, bringing them out through various means such as art therapy, play therapy and Animal Assisted Therapy.
As she does with her adult clients, Gayle focuses on supporting young people in discovering, trusting and manifesting their passions so that some of the challenging aspects of growing up can dissipate.
