Professional Art Therapist

Registered Psychotherapist (Qualifying)

I am a registered art therapist and member of the Canadian Art Therapy Association (CATA), as well as registered with the College of Registered Psychotherapists of Ontario (CRPO) as a Registered Psychotherapist (Qualifying) member.  My therapeutic approach is grounded in art psychotherapy, trauma-informed, and psycho-education. I hold a Masters Degree in Photography from The University of Arts, London, England and completed my postgraduate studies in Art Therapy  at the Toronto Art Therapy Institute. I am also a certified yoga teacher. I have additional trainings in the area of Trauma Integration Clinician, Trauma Informed Practice, and Somatic Regulation.

In my therapy practice, I combine mindfulness & compassion-based approaches, art therapy/expressive arts therapy, somatic body-based approaches, trauma informed and narrative therapy techniques to support children, teens & adults facing a variety of concerns. I have worked extensively with children, adolescents and adults in individual and group therapy sessions, and specialize in working with clients who have anxiety, depression and trauma. I also have expertise in working with behavioural and emotional issues, and empowering self-esteem and confidence building.
