Through a combination of conversation and the use of art and creativity, each time we meet you will be able to express yourself in whichever way you feel most comfortable.
Do you often feel on edge? Worried that something bad is going to happen? Do you have trouble concentrating, trouble sleeping? Do you develop physical symptoms such as shaking, hot flashes, a racing heartbeat, stomach-ache, headache, or a lump in your throat? Does this ever occur even when you can't even think of any reason to feel this way? Do you feel that what you’re experiencing is preventing you from being your best self and living your best life?

There may be times where a person may feel so overwhelmed by their feelings or external circumstances that they are crippled from living the life that they desire and yearn for. These feelings or external circumstances may present themselves as negative thoughts, anxiety, depression, traumatic events, family dynamics and so much more. There is a need and desire for a safe space where one can process through external circumstances and how they impacted them; navigate through those difficult and overwhelming emotions with empathy and compassion; and where they can be their authentic selves without the worry of judgement or rejection.

We won't always make art together; sometimes you just need to talk.
Finding the right therapist can be time-consuming, emotionally exhausting and expensive. For this reason, I offer a complimentary full-length introductory session. I have experience with youth and adults navigating struggles with self-esteem, depression, early childhood or other trauma, disordered eating, relationship issues, anxiety, grief and loss, life transition, and existential anxiety. Clients say they appreciate my precision, as well as my gentle but directive approach to therapy. Mindfulness and meditation inform my practice and I am available, if you wish, to support you to explore this part of yourself.

Art Therapy combines the creative process ( art -making) with psychotherapy to facilitate change.
I firmly believe that we all hold within us the strengths and skills to cope with whatever life brings to our way. Together, in our sessions, we will discover creative and accessible ways to work towards and cope with the changes that you wish to make in the name of positive mental health. I have had the honor of supporting children, adults and seniors discover how the 'drawing out' of their story can heal. Whether you’re a child or a child-at-heart, I look forward to walking with you to support your journey.

I work with people who suffer from the effects of systematic racism and discrimination through art therapy . Racism in Canada is unfortunately very present and can be difficult to navigate for racialized communities. It takes a toll on our mental wellness and can be the source of anxiety, identity issues, depression, cultural disconnect, unmanageable anger, and trauma. Stigma towards mental illness creates barriers for individuals who need to seek out help, and in marginalized communities this stigma is especially harmful. I am an art therapist that works from a systems-based perspective and a client-centred approach.
