Accepting New Patients


As a professional art therapist and RP (CRPO) I use an empathetic, trauma-informed, strengths-based approach to support you on your journey of exploration and healing. Together, we will discover and affirm your inner wisdom while exploring and addressing life challenges: trauma (violence, childhood abuse, sexual abuse, and accidents); life transitions (interpersonal relationships, employment, divorce, separation, loss); depression; anxiety; parenting; immigration and settlement (newcomers); addictions; and eating disorders., Art therapy combines the creative process with psychotherapy to enable self-exploration and understanding. No art skills or talents are required! We use imagery, materials, colour, and shapes to express thoughts and feelings that are difficult to articulate. Art products are never judged. Art-based psychotherapy sessions provide opportunities to: 1) safely express difficult feelings; 2) explore and resolve conflicts; 3) reduce stress and anxiety; 4) experiment with decision-making (materials, scale, colours, and shapes); 6) identify strengths; 7) discover inner wisdom; 8) develop self-awareness; and 9) experience empowerment and healing.
