Every individual I have the opportunity to meet carriers with them a collection of unique experiences, thoughts, beliefs, values and goals. As humans, we all have periods in our lives when we think, “things are not how they should or ought to be” and this may lead us to a place where we may not be feeling like ourselves. I genuinely believe that you, as a client, are the expert at your own life, but sometimes, even experts can use a little fine tuning- this is one of the functions of therapy! I promise to provide you with the highest quality service that it tailored to your specific needs.

I’m here to help you overcome anxiety, to feel empowered, to flourish in your relationships and to facilitate the healing and change you desire in a safe, confidential, creative and compassionate setting. I am a trauma-informed therapist who specializes in self-esteem, anxiety, addiction, loneliness, depression, relationships, dissociation, anger and grief/loss. Change happens when we expand our self-awareness by understanding ourselves. But to understand ourselves, we first need to be understood. That’s why the therapeutic relationship—built on trust, honesty, empathy and vulnerability—lies at the heart of personal change.

Celina is a neurodivergent queer Expressive Arts Therapist with a focus on somatic, earthbased and relational modalities. Their work is client centred and grounded in trauma-informed approaches to healing as an artform. Human nervous systems are wired entirely towards connection, belonging and coregulation, like all beings that exist upon this earth. In times of struggle, we reach out towards others. Yet many of us have learned that vulnerability is dangerous, and have developed coping mechanisms that protect us from connection. The therapeutic relationship is a safe enough space to begin identifying, shifting & reshaping our lives.

Life is an ever-shifting sea, where the currents of growth and transformation carry us on a journey of self-discovery. At times, we may find ourselves adrift, uncertain of our shores and longing for a sense of direction. In these moments, therapy can be an anchor, grounding us and helping us navigate the vast ocean of possibilities. Just as a skilled mariner binds a knot that secures a sail, I believe that each person possesses the innate ability to thread together their own unique narrative of healing and transformation. Through the therapeutic process, we can mend the frayed edges of our being, with compassion and resilience.
