When we have suffered over a long period of time without much support or compassion, we come to rely on certain ways of being and relating that keep us safe but isolated from ourselves and those we love. This is normal considering what we have experienced. Trauma and lack of early nurturing skew our perceptions of ourselves and the world around us. Neither can be trusted, and this determines how we are in relationship within and with others. At the core of all of this is our longing to be in nurturing relationships because the need to feel loved, wanted, and accepted are so innate in us.

Jordan Houlton is a graduate of the University of Ottawa, holding a Masters in Counselling Psychology (M.Ed), and a Bachelor of Education (B.Ed). Jordan began working with youth in 2009 as an elementary and middle school teacher. He quickly found his connection with youth was more about well being, and supporting his students through the ups and downs of life. Jordan soon transitioned to psychotherapy and began practicing play therapy. Play is to kids what talk is to adults. Kids can often act, play, draw what's on their minds easier than talking face-to-face. Jordan believes in the natural growth of the child, and often as adults the best thing we can do is facilitate and nurture this development in a warm and supportive environment.
