The Next Generation

Guiding the next generation to be self-aware and develop healthy emotional expression is one of the most important things we can do. Having someone else to talk to, who is emotionally detached from our lives, can be enough to feel comfortable to open up about things we may be afraid to share with someone close to us.

Larkspur Counselling Therapy works to provide children, youth and young adults with the tools to help become “unstuck”, reframe thinking patterns, heal wounds of trauma and learn to be compassionate with themselves. Having worked with children for sixteen years and as a parent, I know first-hand how difficult it is to carry the weight of preparing our children to be emotionally well-adjusted. I know we are sometimes at a loss as to how to help, and it can be soul-shattering to watch them struggle. Through the use of multiple theoretical orientations and techniques I support a wide array of child, adolescent and young adult challenges and tailor counselling to meet their specific needs.

Thank you for visiting my website and please take your time checking things out. Investing in yourself/your child’s mental health and finding someone who is the “right fit” is essential to growth and movement toward effective change and healing. If you feel Larkspur Therapy may be the right fit for you, please reach me, erica@larkspurtherapy.ca with any questions you may have. I look forward to hearing from you.

Here are ways I can support you:

Counselling Therapy

I offer counselling sessions for children, youth and young adults in the areas of: anxiety, depression, ADHD/ADD, Trauma, Grief & Loss, Navigating Life Transitions, Relationship and Communication Difficulties, LGBTQIA+ + Gender Affirming


Larkspur offers a variety of group workshops for children and youth. Group classes are also available seasonally for parents and babes/toddlers.

The intention of these groups is to provide a safe space for children to develop a healthy sense of self, learn emotional regulation strategies in a non-invasive and play based environment supported by Erica, who is a registered counseling therapist.

Emotional Literacy Resources

I recognize that one of the most important things we can do for children is to support their learning through literacy.
