The Introduction to Art Therapy Workshop will help participants explore the possible benefits of art therapy firsthand through guided exercises by a trained Art Psychotherapist. The focus of the art therapy exercises will be on self-exploration and self-expression through drawing and journaling. Art Therapy focuses on the process rather than the finished product, therefore anyone can participate in this workshop regardless of their artistic abilities 🙂

I believe that everyone is resilient and has the ability to heal and grow. I take an empathetic and flexible approach in my therapeutic practice, in response to each person’s own unique strengths and needs. My therapeutic approach is grounded in art psychotherapy, mindfulness, and psycho-education. I specialize in working with individuals who have experienced violence and trauma. Following a trauma-informed lens, my focus is to help individuals develop tools to manage the impacts of trauma, process memories and feelings, and reconnect with the other parts of identity past the trauma. I also support individuals who are experiencing: mood disorders (depression and anxiety), low self-esteem, relationship problems, and life transitions.
