Kids ReconnectReconnect

Welcome to Calgary’s spark-tacular psychology clinic specializing in kids and families!

Kids don’t have to wait until they grow up to become Superheroes. We believe that every child has a special Superpower and every child is the star in their own Superhero story.

At Kids Reconnect we spark the joy of play to help kids grow and thrive.

Why do our child therapists use play? Because play is how kids communicate. Playing is a way to connect with kids at their (fun and amazing!) level. Play therapy is much more than ordinary play. Play therapy is a structured, systematic, evidence-based, specialized therapeutic approach. Play therapy can show our child psychologists where your child is developmentally. Through play therapy, we can track play themes to discover how your child views themselves, others, and their place in the world. Insights gleaned through play therapy help us to understand your child and support them to grow and thrive.
