About

My practice is spiritually informed and trauma informed narative art therapy with a collaborative client centred approach. I work primarily with individual adult clients to re-frame their experiences and find their strengths with new perspectives and solutions to presenting problems. Through creativity and artistic expression, I also can assist clients to work with trauma related underlying issues that are difficult to verbalize. I have a holistic lens, that includes mental, physical, social and spiritual dimensions of health.
My specialized focus is with women and men in transition. Whether the transition is retirement, grief, relocating, or changing jobs, transition can be difficult. Trauma and mental health issues can further complicate transitions. I collaborate with clients to reframe narratives and find empowerment in self-regulation and creativity.
I have lived experience with mental health issues and recovery that gives me with a unique ability to provide compassion and empathy with an authentic emotional response.
