Jeanne specializes in these treatments:
Play is so important to children. Through play, children express their thoughts and feelings, solve problems, work through fears and emotional hurts, and practice skills for adult life. Play therapy helps young children heal from trauma, deal with life changes, gain mastery over fear and anxiety, and improve social skills and behaviour.
When a child has had something bad, sad, or scary happen to them, play helps them through the healing process. In the presence of a trained play therapist, the child is able to process what has happened, express what they are feeling, and begin to gain mastery over the things that scare them.
Jeanne is credentialed by the Association for Play Therapy as a Registered Play Therapist-Supervisor. (RPT-S)
Creative healing for children of all ages
CHILD-PARENT RELATIONSHIP THERAPY
In Child Parent Relationship Therapy (CPRT), Dr. Williams will teach you how to conduct special play sessions with your children that will help them to develop self confidence and self-regulation while building a fun and positive relationship between parent and child.
Jeanne has received extensive training in CPRT from Dr. Sue Bratton and Dr. Garry Landreth, who developed this evidence-based treatment.
The relationship is the therapy
COLLABORATIVE AND PROACTIVE SOLUTIONS
Collaborative & Proactive Solutions (CPS) is an evidence-based model of care that helps caregivers focus on identifying the problems that are causing concerning behaviors in kids and solving those problems collaboratively and proactively.
As problems are solved, the parent-child relationship is strengthened and challenging behaviours are reduced, all while children are developing new and important cognitive skills.
Jeanne is a Certified Provider of Collaborative and Proactive Solutions, Dr. Ross Greene's groundbreaking and research-supported approach to treating disruptive behaviour disorders.
Solve problems : Improve behaviour
COGNITIVE BEHAVIOURAL THERAPY
Tame fears, worries, anxiety
Cognitive-behavioural therapy (CBT) has long been the standard for evidence-based treatment of anxiety, specific phobias, OCD,
and more. Jeanne adapts CBT to fit the developmental age and unique needs of each child. Using a combination of play and talk, Jeanne teaches children how to be stronger than the "bully in the brain," putting the child in control of their anxious thoughts and feelings.
Jeanne's training in pediatric CBT includes coursework from the Massachusetts General Hospital Psychiatry Academy and the International OCD Foundation.
