About

As an Art Therapist, I work primarily with children of divorce who struggle with anxiety, depression, self-regulation, and social and behavioural issues related to changes in the family system. I practice Art Therapy using a Humanistic strengths-based approach while providing skill-building as a psycho-educational component to strengthen resiliency. Additionally, I believe that being creative (not necessarily just artistic) is an integral part of a prevention model to improve children's mental health and actively promote creative expression in my life, my studio and my community.
Key aspects of the intervention I designed to improve outcomes for children of divorce include instilling hope, correcting misinformation and misdirected blame, disengaging from conflict, and improving temperament through managing loss and depression, understanding origins of anger, and establishing a safe space.
Create Art and Feel Better! Creating art can be an excellent way to calm down if upset or get a bad feeling out by putting it onto a page. Creating art with mental health in mind can help you look at problems differently, imagine a better solution or ending, and generally feel better.
