In addition to verbal psychotherapy, I have expertise in art therapy.
I specialize in working with teenagers and adults suffering from anxiety, depression, relationship problems, loss, and the impact of childhood or current trauma. My practice is attachment based and trauma informed. If you are looking for help with personal or relationship difficulties, I provide a warm and collaborative environment in which your unique values, needs, and strengths will be honoured as we explore the areas in which you struggle. Together, we will gain a deeper understanding of where you are at and of the factors holding you back from the change you desire, while we work towards goals that are meaningful to you.

Art Therapy does not require specific art skills, and can be used to express feelings that we have no words for and help clarify them.
We all need support at different points in our life. You may be looking for a space to work through some of life's challenges like anxiety, depression and issues with self-esteem. You would like that space to be held by someone compassionate and focused on your well-being.

As an art therapist and a psychotherapist, I can help you to use creative exercises to gain a new perspective on your situation or to approach things differently when you feel blocked.
Are you anxious, depressed, or struggling to really feel connected to yourself? Are old patterns or past experiences holding you back or negatively influencing how you deal with situations in the present? In therapy, you can have a space to express yourself and to gain clarity on your thoughts and emotions. Together we can explore aspects of your reality that are harder to define and that go beyond what you already know and can explain about yourself. This can lead you to that exciting place where new insights and self-awareness emerge, and change can happen in your life.

Maya Angelou once said, “there is no greater agony than bearing an untold story inside you”. I am here to support you in expressing your untold stories. I will witness and listen to your untold stories and help you express and process them through the tools that expressive arts therapies provide, particularly art. Art therapy is a less challenging medium to explore your emotional needs. Through our art therapy sessions I will help you catch those overwhelming emotions and entangled thoughts. Together we will be able to find the best strategies for you to make the changes you need to feel better and heal.

Art is a universal language.
As a new-commer myself, I understand the struggles of immigrants and refugees who left home for a better future. Anxiety, depression and mood disorders are very normal. Difficult past is not only a part of the past, it often peaks to say hello in the present . The quality of life could be better and present moments could become more enjoyable. A little help from a professional is a natural thing, since we are human beings.

Time spent with an art therapist can help you access your inner creativity so as to express your feelings, organize your thoughts, and deal with issues and relationships that are causing you difficulty. Art therapy can also provide the means for productive self-reflection leading to personal growth and emotional well-being. No art skills are necessary.

It may look like a craft class, but art therapy in Montréal is a serious technique that uses the creative process to help improve the mental health of clients. Montréal 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. Commonly found in hospitals and community centres, art therapy programs are based on the belief that the creative process is healing and life-enhancing.
