Nice to digitally meet you, my name is Kayla.
Let's not be shy, let me go first and tell you a bit about me. I was born and raised in the prairies, yet I feel the call of the mountains. My favourite colour is teal, you can always find gemstones in my back pockets and I have a secret stash of Oreos in my office. Oh and I am married with a tiny human and a fur-baby.
I am a helper who happens to be a maker (or maybe it's the other way around?). Whichever came first we will never know... I have a Bachelors Degree in Social Work and certification in Expressive Art Therapy.
My approach to therapy might differ from the "therapist" you may have in mind. I believe in art & creative expression as a way to communicate and heal. Actually, I believe it is the best avenue for those who find it difficult to verbalize what might be troubling them, or who struggle to identify what might be wrong in the first place. The art created here isn't going to live on walls - its going to flow through you. It's going to enrich you, heal you and guide you into new perspectives.
I like to think of myself as a holder of space & seeker of truth - the kind that gets mixed into the collage, the kind that emerges from a perfectly timed a-ha! moment, and the kind that flows from heart & mind every day.
I divide my time between instruction at Red Fox Creative Studio - where I nurture adults to unearth their innermost expressive voices and here, my private practice, which is aimed at serving individual & groups of mothers, working professionals and anyone seeking a more joyful life.
Next time we meet, I hope it's in person!
Wishing you a creative day,
