Personal Statement:

Art therapy offers individuals a unique opportunity to engage in the creative process while gaining insight and understanding into their lives. Using the creative arts can be incredibly helpful when we don’t have the words to express life’s circumstances. My goal is to help facilitate the creative process and work alongside my clients as I support their journey.
Art therapy is an accessible and helpful option for many individuals, regardless of age and art-making experience. An individual does not have to be “good” at art in order to experience the benefits of engaging in the creative process. I truly believe in the therapeutic benefits of art therapy and would be honoured to work alongside you on your journey if you decide to choose art therapy!
