The art therapy studio is a safe space where kids can express their inner world through art, storytelling and play.
"Children have very deep feelings just the way parents do, just the way everybody does; and our striving to understand those feelings and to better respond to them is what I feel is the most important task in our world." -Mr. Rogers. Sometimes, big feelings or difficult experiences can be hard for children to express using words. Art and play tap into the languages that kids naturally use as they grow and begin to understand their environment, and can help provide an outlet for kids to express themselves.

I use play and art therapy in my work with children and teens. A creative approach can help children dealing with adjustment issues, as well as anxiety and stress to feel safe to express themselves. I work with both children and parents to help them build healthier and more connected relationships. I have a special interest in children with behavioural problems and defiance. Creative interventions give children a voice to express what they may have difficulty putting into words. The approach I take also helps children become more able to verbalize their feelings.

I can help you reclaim parts of your self that you avoid or may fear through art and embodied dialogue.
Life can often feel chaotic. The reality is that changes are presented to us outside of our control and we find ourselves faced with the task of making decisions and choices that will decide the course of our future. These untimely decisions and choices can leave us feeling bewildered and disoriented. To complicate things further, we can find ourselves stuck in emotional and behavioural patterns that inhibit and hold us back from making the decisions we would like to or that would be best for us. Sometimes it’s difficult to even know what we would like to do or what is best for us. What should you aim towards?

It may look like a craft class, but art therapy in Kitchener is a serious technique that uses the creative process to help improve the mental health of clients. Kitchener Art therapy can be used on children and adults to treat a wide range of emotional issues, including anxiety, depression, family and relationship problems, abuse and domestic violence, and trauma and loss.
