My practice is informed the creative art therapies, Internal Family Systems (an evidence-based approach that allows us to deeply explore the rich contradictions that makes up the many parts of us) and mindfulness based practices.
We all have our own histories and desires for our futures. At times these personal narratives can feel like a resource and at other times a hindrance. Sometimes we feel like we’re stuck or are moving backwards when we want to go forwards. How do we stay present in our day-to-day lives when we are visited by the voices of the past or images of the future? How do we find and listen to the voice of strength, wisdom and resiliency that lives in each one of us, when that voice seems to be silent? I don’t offer pat answers, but instead offer space and guidance to help you to deeply explore the issues and questions that want to explore.

A clinically trained MSW, RSW, RP (Masters degrees (Pratt Institute and Smith College), ATR-BC (Registered Art Therapist) I specialize in talk and creative therapies.
Do you wish things were different? I work with diverse clients facing life's transitions and challenges. My theoretical framework is relational, using both talk therapy and/or creative/expressive arts modalities. Following your lead, I listen/witness and attune carefully in order to attend to your specific need. We start with where you are most comfortable, which means that talking, imagery, dreamwork and silence are all welcome. Although I work flexibly between short term talk therapy (psychodynamic psychotherapy) and expressive/creative arts, we safely build our relationship, while co-creating in our therapeutic studio space.

I was originally trained as an art therapist and have worked with children and adolescents and adults.
Anxiety or depression? My goal is to help you work towards changing the future, by getting an understanding of your patterns and triggers. My goal is never to change who YOU are but help YOU change how you respond to your environment. I'll never ask you to do anything that I haven't tried myself or is not backed by scientific research. I believe in homework however, do not judge you if it's not done, it gives you a chance to carry your sessions with you throughout the week. My aim is to not keep you in therapy forever but help you learn to use tools that can change how you're responding to your environment.

Aside from language, we may also use body awareness (movement and non-movement), metaphors, art , and imagination, depending on your level of curiosity.
Whether you’re feeling anxious, uncertain, unsupported in your relationships, or going through difficult emotions, I believe that you’re coping with it the best way you can. We're not meant to live life “toughing it out” on our own. When you go through times of feeling isolated, or find it challenging to receive support or reach out to family and friends, therapy can be a place where you don’t have to do it alone. Good therapy rests on a sense of connection with your therapist. That's why I offer a free 20-minute consultation – for you to find out how you are with me, and how I am with you, before taking the next step.

As a Registered Psychotherapist and Professional Art Therapist, I integrate traditional talk therapy with art therapy , also known as counselling art therapy .
“Stepping into the world of therapy can be a scary and challenging experience.” Why? It may be because you grew up in an environment or culture where “talking” about your mental health did not exist, was not accepted, or when you did, it was not validated. Know that I actively try to de-stigmatize “going to therapy” as part of my practice. I believe that therapy can look different for everyone. Some individuals engage in therapy to maintain their emotional well-being and balance in their life and/or some want to actively address debilitating mental health concerns. My approach is to meet you where you are at.

I am also specialized in working with children and teenagers using CBT, Art Therapy , and Mindfulness.
Are you trying to take control of your emotions, unhealthy habits, or negative thoughts? Are you trying to improve your interpersonal skills, romantic or professional relationships, or seeking personal growth? Are you simply in need to talking about your life, decisions, and future plan? If yes, then you may want to try setting an appointment to tackle these issues. I provide therapy for children, adults, parent-child relationship, family, and couple therapy. A friendly reminder for my reader is that you don't have to have a "serious condition" to see therapy. If you feel stuck in any aspect of your life, therapy can be helpful.

I am a registered psychotherapist (qualifying) and a certified art therapist.
My passion is to engage with clients who are struggling with mental health issues and for which traditional talk therapy may not be the most helpful modality. As a certified professional art therapist, I seek to help my client find meaning, purpose, and ultimately their inner voice through the creative process. A client may come into art therapy seeking relief from a variety of issues but later find that they can oftentimes find wisdom from within. Art therapy can jog such a process where words sometimes fail. The goal of my practice is to cultivate and nurture this inner voice, and so help my client to develop greater confidence.

I specialize in "talk therapy," but am able to increase the efficacy of our sessions by using specific methods using images, art or photographs, or your own imagination, to access feelings that your rational mind may reject or discount.
We enter psychotherapy for a wide variety of reasons: The death or loss of a loved one, illness, job loss, divorce, addiction, etc., but all of us seek help because we are trying to find a better way to deal with the reality we are facing. My job as a psychotherapist is to help you talk about your emotions and reactions in a safe environment, figure out where these emotions and reactions are coming from, observe whether your reactions produce the desired outcomes and, discover new ways to react, if that would produce more desirable outcomes

I work from a model of health, balance and empathy by bringing into awareness the places where we get stuck and our unique ways of getting there. You know best when your patterns of coping are no longer working. A therapist's job is to support you in creating positive shifts in your life. This support may sometimes feel frustrating, especially when our familiar patterns of functioning are being challenged. I incorporate art , humour and paradox in sessions allowing for a creative, spontaneous exploration of your needs, contradictions and feelings and by providing a safe space where new possibilities and hope are possible.
