Art of Transformation - Expressive Arts Therapy
The seriously playful
approach when words alone won't do
If you are looking for a registered
psychotherapist in the Niagara Region (Ontario), who uses diverse art
forms to help you work through your challenges, I look forward to meet
I am a registered psychotherapist (CRPO
in St Catharines and have been working in the field for over 15 years. I
offer individual expressive arts therapy and therapeutic group workshops
for children, youths, and adults. I was trained at the School for Exploration and Development of Art in the
Healing and Social Fields
(Arscura) in Richmond Hill, the CREATE
in Toronto, and the European Graduate School
Saas Fe, Switzerland.
I work with people with and without mental health diagnosis. Many of my
clients suffer from early childhood trauma or inter-generational trauma.
Problems include emotional difficulties with anger, shame, and depression.
Others struggle with anxiety, post traumatic stress disorder, overall
stress and burnout. Some have learning difficulties such as ADD (ADHD),
others have a social skill dilemma, because what they learned in early
childhood does not match the skills they need in later life. Whatever
involves strong feelings can be most accurately expressed in the arts.
In my studio you will find
- Paint and drawing materials
- Clay and plasticine to sculpt
- Sand to play with for discovering and burring
- Space to move
- Musical instruments to play
No previous art experience is needed, just your curiosity and a longing to
overcome challenges, however small or big they might be. Please contact
me for a free
preliminary meeting. To find out more about the forms of therapy I offer
