About

Has anxiety and depression become amplified for you with issues from the past resurfacing? Maybe you have been to counselling before but would like to try a more holistic approach; one that will teach you the tools needed to overcome feelings of sadness, dread and uncertainty? Often times, experiences buried from childhood and the past resurface as adults which can greatly affect the way we feel and our sense of purpose in the world. It isn’t until things get so uncomfortable, that we feel the only option available is to make a change. This isn’t always easy but reaching out for support, is the first and most important step.
To move into a life that feels more balanced and grounded despite what is happening around you, can be difficult to navigate alone. I offer a combination of Art Therapy and Counselling with a Mindful and Somatic approach to healing that has been proven to have lasting results. Healing comes from connecting to your own inner strengths and resiliency.
Art Therapy gives a voice to things you may not have words for. By allowing what is inside to emerge as a creative expression, you develop new understandings and ways to navigate feelings, creating shifts and hopes for a new future. I invite you to reach out for a free consult to see if working together would support your journey to becoming a new you.
