Expressive Arts Therapy

With a certification in Expressive Arts Therapy (Winnipeg Holistic Arts Therapy Institute - WHEAT), I enjoy engaging clients in a variety of expressive arts modalities that support the therapeutic process through Visual Arts; Body/Movement Expression; Music; Narrative/Story-Writing; Photography or other arts-centred practices initiated by clients. Expressive Arts Therapy is effective for treating PTSD; Trauma; Anxiety; Depression, Eating Disorders; Addictions, and Social Challenges.

Group Facilitation

Group Facilitation Workshops are offered on a variety of topics for groups & organizations, such as Wellness/Wellbeing Development; Mindfulness/Body-Centred Practices; and Educator, Professional, or Leadership Development. The Circles of Trust process founded by Parker Palmer & The Center for Courage & Renewal, as well as creative, hands-on approaches are often utilized in an effort to bring the "whole" client to the learning or healing process.


Post-Treatment Addiction Support Group Sessions using an infusion of approaches such as Trauma-Informed and Gender-Based12-step programs (Stephanie Covington Model) , Expressive-Arts, and Mindfulness/Yoga Informed practices, are also available. Stay tuned for further information on the heART of Recovery program coming soon...

My Approach

I whole-heartedly believe in the wisdom and power that resides in each human being, and I am dedicated to working with clients to help unleash these and other resources to reduce suffering and increase wellness/wellbeing. 

Working from a strength-based, client-centred approach, each client can expect to be treated with the upmost respect and dignity in a non-judgemental and compassionate therapeutic environment.


I look forward to meeting you soon!
