Hi, I'm Meghan Walker!
I’m a Registered Psychotherapist (Qualifying), a cat mom, Disney nerd, and an advocate for child and adolescent mental health. Being a youth or young adult in today’s world looks MUCH different from previous generations, and that can be hard to navigate. Tweens are unable to express themselves properly, teens feel like no one understands them, and parents feel like they are being shut out or failing. I am confident that I can help tweens, teens, and their parents work through challenging and changing behaviours, relationships, and communication styles by building upon skills, knowledge and connection.
I aspire to help parents:
Build HEALTHY RELATIONSHIPS with their parents: ones in which kids and parents feel comfortable turning to each other for support!
Feel CONFIDENT in themselves and their ability to set appropriate BOUNDARIES within their social circle!
Become educated about the MIND-BODY CONNECTION through Cognitive Behavioural and Mindfulness techniques!
Develop COMMUNICATION and COHESIVENESS within the family so that everyone can start to enjoy being a FAMILY again!
My PASSION for helping tweens and teens is driven by creating awareness around their thoughts, feelings and behaviours, in a setting that is open, welcoming and safe – I will always meet them on their level.
When we are able to understand the interactions between how we think, feel and act, we get a better picture that allows us to dive deeper into the core of the presenting problem.
When ALL family members learn how to use effective strategies for boundaries, communication, trust, and autonomy, healthy and secure family relationships will flourish.
Let’s get your tween or teen back on track to getting the most enjoyment out of life and reforming your family bond!
