I am originally from Canada. I have a BA in Multidisciplinary Fine Art and an MA in Art Psychotherapy. I have been working as an art psychotherapist with adults and children for over 15 years. I deliver meaningful and creative therapy sessions, and I love every moment of it.

As an experienced provider of art psychotherapy and other therapeutic interventions, I provide a flexible and dynamic approach. I am passionate about what I do and love having the opportunity to help people connect to themselves through art therapy. This image has an empty alt attribute; its file name is picture-1.jpg

As multidisciplinary artist and art therapist I feel many forms of creativity can be powerful tools of self-exploration, with the emphasis not being on the finished image or how realistic it looks, but on the experience of making it and what this represents to the individual or group.

I work psychodynamically, and always developing my approach to what works best on an individual or group.
