You’re the black sheep of the family, who doesn’t fit in anywhere--The Outsider. It’s hard for you to make friends, especially as a sensitive empath, introvert, and artist. You are intellectual and talented but lack social and emotional intelligence. You may have ambitious business and creative dreams; but due to health problems, addictions (e.g., weed and games), and a lack of focus, discipline, and motivation, you continually fail to achieve your goals--often beset by fears, doubts, and procrastination that stem from regrets over past mistakes and failures. Welcome, it’s time to reclaim the power of your Creativity and True Self.

Do you struggle with your emotions? Do you experience either intense emotions (e.g. guilt, sadness, anger) or suppressed emotions? Dialectical Behaviour Therapy (DBT) has been demonstrated to help regulate emotions. DBT can help calm emotional storms, increase enjoyable emotions and experiences, decrease unhelpful behaviours and coping strategies, and foster and improve positive relationships. Imagine what your life would be like if you had more balanced emotions, clear thinking even in challenging situations, and fulfilling relationships with others.

Slowing down is a prerequisite to the conscious act of looking inwards. It is easy to seek distractions or take part in unhealthy habits when we are feeling unwell. It certainly isn’t as easy to seek help, to ask ourselves important questions, and demonstrate self-love. The way to self-love can have different meanings for each of us, depending on our life experiences. Perhaps it means self-compassion, forgiveness, relaxation, stress management, setting boundaries, or developing assertiveness. Putting the brakes on our busy lives and dedicating time to put ourselves first, can help. I welcome clients at any stage in this process.

In my private practice as an expressive arts therapist I use the arts along with conversation and reflection, to help clients get ‘unstuck,’ uncover resources for change and growth, live with suffering when necessary and celebrate the joy of life as we humans always have -- by making meaning through making art.. Expressive arts therapy is grounded in the arts but I also draw on psychology-based therapies to support and inform a safe and effective healing environment. I work with clients suffering from anxiety, depression, self-esteem issues, creative blocks, eating disorders, physical illness, grief, trauma and sexual abuse.

Cognitive Behavioural Therapy is a goal-oriented treatment that takes a hands-on, practical approach to problem-solving. The primary goal is to change patterns of thinking or behavior that are behind people's difficulties, and so change the way they feel, based on the idea that our thoughts cause our feelings and behaviours. CBT is effective with many adverse life events, including the following: *anxiety *depression *anger *stress *adverse life experiences *bullying *interpersonal and relationship difficulties (communication skills and conflict resolution) *stress management OCD, and *life transitions and adjustment.

Many people hold the belief that challenges with emotional and mental well-being are a result of difficulty in coping, functioning, or adaptability. We may attempt to use willpower, intellect, and behavioural changes to tackle these issues; if these attempts fail to bring us inner peace or lasting change, we can begin to feel ashamed, alone, and stagnant. It is my belief that challenges with mental health, emotion, and relationships do not exist in a vacuum. These are more than personal failings at coping and functioning. Once we settle into this understanding, we can begin to uncover the deeper questions of your healing work.

If you are reading this you are likely considering the possibility that something in your life needs to change. During the more difficult times we can often feel alone, misunderstood and unable to see the possibility of things getting better. This is not because of some inherent flaw or weakness in us, which I often hear clients say, but a part of being human. Life, like mood, is fluid. We may not be able to control many of the external variables but we can learn to navigate them and be well.
