I live and work in the mid-Vancouver Island area. My clients include children and adults with issues of trauma and loss, and couples with relationship issues. I also see children with autism, Asperger’s, and explosive tempers, and work with their parents. My approach is based on understanding the client’s history, strengths, and motivation. I tailor the treatment to the needs and strengths of each individual client.

I came to the practice of art therapy later in life. I tried many different careers and loved them all. After noticing how participants in my creativity workshops let the rest of the world fall away while they ‘made something’ I pursued that magical space into an understanding of the power of art therapy. I would be happy to provide you with a safe, attentive environment where you can do the same! The biggest regret people have at the end of their lives is wishing they had the courage to live a life true to themselves, not the life others expected of them. I have a private art therapy practice in Toronto where I offer a safe space for any one to explore their true selves and their difficult past using art-making as a communication tool. The creative process itself is healing. The emphasis is on self exploration and transformation, not on art technique. I specialize in empathic, insightful listening, and workshopping themes that come up in your creative work that spark insight and change toward positive possibilities in your life.
