If you are looking for clinical art therapy as a way to approach a specific issue, life transition or dealing with uncomfortable feelings, than individual therapy might be the right approach for you.

Individual therapy is a one-on-one experience that involves psychotherapy and lasts 45-60 minutes. You and I will work together by setting goals for your time in therapy, and using an approach that works best for you.

Who do I work with?

Art Therapy with Children:

 

I see children in art therapy from ages 7-12. The way I approach art therapy with kids is meeting them where they are at developmentally. Remember that kid’s brains aren’t fully developed yet, and they don't always have all the language to express how they are feeling, so that is where art and play come in. Kids learn about the world around them through play. I work with them one-on-one to get to know their behaviours, bringing in techniques and language around emotions to help develop this further and working with you, the caregiver, to provide resources you can use outside therapy.

Art allow kids to have a space where they just get to be completely themselves, to learn, discover and be curious.

Reasons I may see Children:

  • Stress & Anxiety (Health anxiety, school anxiety, sleep anxiety)

  • Emotional Regulation

  • Anger and overwhelm

  • Perfectionism

  • Life transitions (COVID19, divorce, moving)

  • Grief and loss
     

Rates:

In-Person & Online available

Check with your insurance company to see if they cover psychotherapy, or ask me about my sliding scale.

Art Therapy with Adults:

If you are looking for an alternative type of therapy, then a clinical art therapy approach might be the right fit for you. Art therapy allows for us to express in a visual way when words might feel difficult. When I work with adults some choose to make art, and some choose not to. If you prefer a traditional talk therapy, we can do that as well. Remember, that these sessions are for you, to do what you need to during your time.

Reasons I might see you in therapy:

  • Stress & Anxiety

  • Social Anxiety

  • Life transitions (moving, new job, relationship changes)

  • Identity exploration

  • Grief & loss

  • Perfectionism

  • Creative self-exploration

My Approaches

I focus on a client-centered, trauma-informed and strengths-based approach. 

This means that I believe you are the expert on your own experiences, I understand the impact of trauma and I focus on looking at your own strengths.

My goal is to help guide you through a process where you feel safe and heard, so that you can have the space to explore and be curious about your experiences.  


 

Modalities I use

Everyone is different. So I use a wide variety of modalities and approaches that might work for you. This could include art therapy, poetry or journal writing and eco-therapy.

I also include mindfulness-based interventions including mindful awareness and breathing techniques. I include some cognitive-behavioural therapy based interventions that help you work with anxious thoughts.
