Ploy Ethamma

Registered Social Worker 

Meet Ploy, a dedicated Registered Social Worker armed with a Master’s degree in Social Work, specializing in clinical. With over six years focused on child and adolescent mental health, Ploy has honed her skills to address a diverse range of challenges. Her passion lies in guiding children, teens, and young adults on a journey of self-discovery, ensuring they feel deeply understood and foster meaningful connections within their communities.


I am committed to helping children, teens, and young adults navigate challenges, build resilience, and develop healthy coping skills - sometimes through talk and, at times, through the power of art and play. With a warm and compassionate approach, I create a safe space for children, teens, and young adults to express themselves through art and play. My therapeutic techniques are rooted in evidence-based practices tailored to each individuals unique needs and developmental stage. 

There is no one-size-fits-all approach; each session is tailored to meet your unique needs.
Together, we will explore emotions, enhance communication, and foster positive
growth. Regardless of who you are or what has brought you here, I'm glad you made it! Engaging in therapy is a courageous step towards the changes you want for yourself!

Client Focus: Children (ages 10+), teens, and young adults.
Types of therapy: CBT, DBT, strength-based approach using play and art techniques.
Specialized working with Asian-Canadians and newcomers with concerns relating to
anxiety, self-esteem, peer-relationship, burnout/stress, life transitions, and career.
