Counselling for Children, Youth, Parents and Families

Does your child need help in regulating their behaviour or emotions? Does your teen seem depressed or anxious? Are you unsure which “parenting advice” to follow? Then know you are not alone and help is only a phone call away!

As a child and family counsellor, I help parents, youth, and children find answers and experience hope.   

Entering into child, youth or family therapy can be a scary experience.  But congratulations!  You have made the first step towards health and healing .

I am excited to take these first steps with you. Please call and let’s walk this path together.

Ridge Meadows Counselling

About Ridge Meadows Counselling:  

Mary Stanwood,

As a mother of four adult daughters I understand the struggles parents and families can have in managing their children, understanding their youth, and navigating family conflicts.

I have worked with children, youth, and families in a variety of capacities for over thirty years. I provide therapy and counselling services either with the parents and child together, or separately.  The focus is on the needs of the individuals.  The structure depends upon these needs and goals.

Some of the ways I help children is by using Play Therapy, Art Therapy and Sand Tray Therapy. I also incorporate Cognitive Behaviour Therapy, Mindfulness and use a Person Centered Approach.

My goal is to help people:
– restore hope
– increase communication
– develop emotional expression
– learn emotional regulation

Organizations I work with include:

First Nations Health Authority
Crime Victims Assistance Program
Self Design Learning
BC Center for Ability

Employee Assistance Programs I work with include:

Health Canada EAP
Homewood Health EAP
Family Service EAP
