Children and adolescents need support now more than ever. As an Expressive Arts Therapist, I am passionate about helping young people tap into their full potential. Through my holistic, whole- child approach, I see your child for who they are - the child behind the diagnosis, the child behind the disappointing report cards and the child behind the pointing fingers of their peers. I will take my time to get to know your child , to gain their trust, to develop a relationship, and when they're ready, work from a resource-oriented perspective. Every child has so much to offer... it's just a matter of helping them to uncover it all.
