Art Therapist, DTATI
Professional member of the Canadian Art Therapy Association (CATA)
Sometimes saying something out-loud or finding the right words can be difficult and overwhelming. Art can breakdown barriers and creates an inviting and accessible way to communicate thoughts, feelings and experiences. To me providing individual-based care that adapts to you is what art therapy represents. Using creativity as a means to offer you a comfortable form of communication is, I believe, a great way to promote well being, growth and healing. I am passionate about the benefits of art therapy as a positive therapeutic intervention and look forward to working with you and/or your family member(s).
