Your child is amazing. You just want the best for them. If you're exploring the idea of therapy, it's likely that your child is currently encountering some difficulties. There's nothing more heart-wrenching than witnessing your child face challenges. Sometimes, you can pinpoint the underlying issue, but in other instances, it remains a complete mystery. Art therapists are trained in both art and psychology, and have knowledge about the psychological role of the creative process and the impact of using different art materials and techniques for helping uncover issues, build healthy coping mechanisms, and support healing and growth.
Maybe your teen is getting into trouble and not acting like themselves out of seemingly nowhere, or maybe your child starts bursting into tears, exhibits anger, or maybe they’ve gone through something rough and need some extra support. If these scenarios feels familiar to you, I'm here to help through art therapy and counselling in Nelson, BC & Online.
I understand that taking the first step is a significant decision. If you're seeking a compassionate and experienced art psychotherapist who will support and guide your child on a path of self-discovery, fun, and healing, I invite you to reach out and book a complimentary consultation call so you can see if art therapy is right for your family!

Art therapy combines both the creative process and an opportunity to engage and process verbally as well. Your child may benefit from this if they struggle with low self esteem, low demeanour/depression, anxiety, anger, life transitions (like a new teacher or baby), grief and loss of a loved one or pet, parental separations, embracing their uniqueness (ADHD, Autism, giftedness), etc.
