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 . Increasingly, I also draw on Internal Family Systems (working with our "parts") 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.

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.

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.

In my therapy practice, I combine mindfulness & compassion-based approaches, art therapy /expressive arts therapy, somatic body-based approaches, parts oriented approaches (TIST/ IFS), and narrative therapy techniques to support children, teens & adults facing a variety of concerns.
Life is a rollercoaster. It’s full of constant ups & downs. For many of us, it can become too overwhelming to face it alone. Having the support of a experienced, empathic & attuned therapist who can work with you to face life challenges with more ease & self-compassion, while learning effective coping practices for future stressors can be a supportive way to navigate life’s many uncertainties.

Create Art and Feel Better! Creating art can be an excellent way to calm down if upset or get a bad feeling out by putting it onto a page.
As an Art Therapist, I work primarily with children of divorce who struggle with anxiety, depression, self-regulation, and social and behavioural issues related to changes in the family system. I practice Art Therapy using a Humanistic strengths-based approach while providing skill-building as a psycho-educational component to strengthen resiliency. Additionally, I believe that being creative (not necessarily just artistic) is an integral part of a prevention model to improve children's mental health and actively promote creative expression in my life, my studio and my community.

Angry, sad, confused or deeply lost, being with someone with years of experience in being with folks can matter. Do you just need someone to really hear you deeply and let you know that you are on the right path, that your soul is guiding you? Through getting to know you with words, deep relaxation, dream work, creative art work and body work we will make sense of this together/dynamically. Sometimes, you will just want clear feedback and I will give that too. Practically, as a Registered Nurse and Psychotherapist I bring a health care perspective and soul exploration.

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 causes 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 radicalized communities this stigma is especially harmful. I am an art therapist that works from a systems-based perspective and a client-centred approach.

We won't always make art together; sometimes you just need to talk.
****Online work only at the moment**** Finding the right therapist can be time-consuming, emotionally exhausting and expensive. For this reason, I offer a complimentary introductory session. I have experience treating children, youth and adults facing a number of issues: self-esteem, depression, early childhood or other trauma, eating disorders, relationship issues, anxiety, grief and loss, etc. My clients say they appreciate my precision, as well as my gentle but directive approach to counselling and therapy. As I have a background in meditation and spiritual practice, I also am available to help you explore this part of yourself.

Art Therapy Counsellors
It may look like a craft class, but art therapy in Toronto is a serious technique that uses the creative process to help improve the mental health of clients. Toronto Art therapy can be used on children and adults to treat a wide range of emotional issues, including anxiety, depression, family and relationship problems, abuse and domestic violence, and trauma and loss. Commonly found in hospitals and community centres, art therapy programs are based on the belief that the creative process is healing and life-enhancing. As they paint or draw, a skilled Toronto art therapist can use the client's works of art and their approach to the process as springboards to help them gain personal insight, improve their judgment, cope with stress, and work through traumatic experiences.
