I believe the words of author Art E.
I offer professional counselling service that recognizes and appreciates each individual’s unique personality and circumstances. My goal is to help every client thrive emotionally, psychologically, and intellectually. I am equally as interested to hear a client’s story of trauma, loss, regret, loneliness, and difficult family dynamics, as I am to listen about times filled with purpose and happiness. I pay close attention to what is said, in addition to what is left unsaid, to uncover patterns of core beliefs.

My use of art and play therapy techniques, mindfulness, and positive psychology are customized to match your unique experiences.
Life is difficult. We all face challenges that leave us feeling sad, angry, overwhelmed and at times, stuck. Feelings change our behaviours and soon we find ourselves snapping, hating our jobs, drinking, and not eating or sleeping, among other symptoms. Suddenly we barely recognize ourselves. If you have ever told yourself that this is not the person you want to be, you are not alone. Seeking professional help is the first step in making positive change. If you are consumed by anger, hurt, worry, grief, suicidal thoughts, or using self-harm or poor coping to control pain, I can help.

I have taught Art Therapy at the post-secondary level for twelve years.
I view suffering, illness and imbalance as profound opportunities for deep healing and renewed meaning in life. I am skilled at creating a warm and caring connection that allows for deep inner work. I have a unique insight into the difficulties plaguing artists, people with complex/developmental trauma, and those who identify as highly sensitive. I will support you to establish an internal sense of safety, to self-regulate (find balance) & develop resilience. I have specialized training in using art , poetry, visualization, dreamwork, and movement in therapy. I am not afraid to illuminate areas where you may be stuck or unaware.

I (Linda) have more than 30 years of experience and have advanced certifications (training) in emotionally focused therapy, cognitive behaviour, art /play therapy and Hakomi/body psychotherapy.
It isn’t necessary to stay stuck (or alone) in painful situations or challenging circumstances. Therapy/counselling provides an opportunity to uncover and discover new understandings, strengths and resiliencies in self (and others). Therapy provides a safe space to develop action plans to explore difficult life, or work transitions including separation, divorce, and job and career changes. Therapy also provides a safe space to explore and develop skills in managing mental health challenges such as anxiety, depression, OCD, ODD, etc. No problem is too big for therapy.

It can be really hard to prioritize yourself, especially if you are a parent or caregiver. Caregivers need care, too, but many things can get in the way of this: lack of supports (systemic and personal), an individualistic culture, guilt and shame, lack of modelling (i.e. "how do I even do that?"), unresolved trauma & attachment issues, burnout & time poverty. I use traditional talk therapy and Sensorimotor (body-focused) Psychotherapy, Art Therapy & EMDR to help you slow down and attend to yourself. I believe that a joyful, creative life where you honour your own needs and deeply care for others at the same time is possible.

Art therapy is my favorite modality, and I like to incorporate art making in other forms of therapy, such as Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT), Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Solution-Focused Therapy (SFT), mindfulness, and play therapy.
***I am not accepting new clients at this time.*** Therapy is no easy task. (Yeah, I said it). It is a lot of work with ups and downs, just like everything else you've accomplished to get to where you are! Whether you are seeking help for grief, trauma, life changes/events, depression and anxiety, family and relationship troubles, stress, or any other issue, it takes dedication to the process of self-discovery. If you are ready, I would be honored to take the first steps beside you.

I specialize in working with children, adolescents and adults through several modalities (talk therapy, CBT -mindful and Trauma based, art therapy , play therapy, Sandtray and sensory work).
Humor, genuine compassion and empathy are necessary for healing - especially the humor part! Which is why they are benchmarks of my clinical practice. Combined together, the healing force created is a 'game changer' in people's lives. My approach to psychotherapy is person centered (congrats, you are unique! Your therapy should be too), grounded in attachment theory (relationships are our friend! Don't argue...everyone needs a friend) and developmental psychology (we all go through life changes, change suucks, but it's unavoidable). All this guides our path to wellness. Heads up - standard credential speech ahead...

At Family Counselling Centres we recognize that therapy cannot be a one size fits all approach. Every individual is unique in how they respond to therapy. Accordingly, we utilize play therapy, animal assisted (horse and dog) therapy, EMDR, art therapy , filial therapy, sand play therapy, and traditional psychotherapy to provide clients with comprehensive care. We treat children, teens, adults, and families using both traditional and non-traditional therapies. We believe that people can live up to their full potential if a nurturing environment is available-- this is why we put such a strong focus on the family.

I have received additional training in sand tray therapy, play therapy, art based therapy, child parent relationship therapy, trauma and suicide assessment/prevention.
It is my belief that therapy is both a dialogue and collaborative relationship between the therapist and their clients. I aim to establish a safe, trusting and encouraging environment for my clients. However, I also strive towards building resiliency, raising self awareness and connecting my clients to a greater sense of community. I enjoy working with clients from all age groups (children, adolescents and adults). I have been offering therapeutic services in the community for 6 years.

After 12 years of being a psychotherapist and an art therapist helping people impacted by trauma and its accompanying symptomatology, I felt called to work with more joy and pleasure, helping clients step into a new reality beyond their trauma experiences.
Sometimes our greatest discomfort comes when we aren’t who we once were and we’re not yet who we are becoming. We need help to step into this new reality. It is possible to go through life’s challenges with support, guidance and inspiration. Trauma can fracture us from our authentic self. Therapy can help to put the pieces together: mind, body, heart and soul. It is possible to discover new internal resources that bring an increased feeling of self-mastery, self-awareness and self-confidence. It is possible that successfully going through life’s rites of passage can lead to a clear vision for a future filled with purpose.

Art Therapy Counsellors

How does art therapy work?

The process of making art allows people to express themselves. Art-making can take many forms, such as painting, collage, or sculpting. The therapist asks questions that the work elicits, such as how the person felt while creating their piece, or if any memories surfaced that they can discuss. The therapist will then work with the patient to process their experience, understand themselves better, and work toward change.

Does art therapy help with trauma?

Art therapy can be a valuable treatment option for those suffering from trauma. Traumatic experiences such as combat, rape, or childhood abuse can be so painful that articulating them can be too scary or painful; creating art allows people to express themselves without words, and tell their story in a different way. The physical nature of creating art can also help people feel rooted in the body, which may benefit those who feel disconnected from their body in the aftermath of trauma.

How long does art therapy last?

The duration of art therapy varies, but a common length for treatment is 10 to 15 weekly sessions. Some people may see improvement in just a few weeks, while others may choose to remain in therapy longer term. Patients should periodically discuss their goals with their therapist to make sure the two are aligned on process and progress.

What are the limitations of art therapy?

Art therapy is helpful for many people, but a limitation is that it doesn’t have as robust an evidence base as other forms of therapy, such as cognitive behavioral therapy or acceptance and commitment therapy. The evidence on art therapy is mixed; some research demonstrates its benefits, while other research suggests that it has little impact on patients.
