Expressive Art Therapy is a therapy of imagination.
Your story matters, you matter, your well-being matters. The good, the bad, and the ugly – they all make up who and why we are. It’s ok if you’re not ‘fine’ right now, it's ok that you’re feeling a little dark, and it’s more than ok that you are seeking out the light. Life can be messy and sometimes we lose track of who we are. We need to get back to honouring our wishes, desires and most importantly ourselves.
IMAGINE feeling grounded and empowered, working towards creating the life you want (it’s easier then you might be telling yourself).
Together, we will work toward self-awareness and discovering how to assess bodily clues when stress and anxiety rear their ugly heads. As a social worker, I believe every individual has the ability to live a joyful, more intentional and authentic life. My intention is to guide you into more self-love, mindfulness, and creative self-expression.
Creativity is a powerful catalyst for change. Through creative expression, you will alleviate stress, calm your mind and focus on healing. We start by not knowing what will come. These therapeutic sessions may include visual art, writing, movement, painting, and/or music. Don’t be scared - you don’t have to be ‘good’ at art or creativity, no previous experience is necessary. This is all about process, not product.
These sessions are for you if…
You’re feeling mundane and stagnant in your life.
You don’t really know what’s ‘wrong’, or alternately, you do know what’s troubling you.
You're feeling overwhelmed by life’s expectations and ‘need a break’.
You find yourself saying ‘busy’ when someone asks how you are.
You're looking for clarity and inspiration.
You're ready to make a change.
This is not for you if you are...
Resistant to change.
Not ready for true insight and honesty about who you are and how you want to live your life.
Let’s talk! Your first consultation is free.
MY AREAS OF FOCUS ARE:
Releasing feelings of overwhelm by replacing them with strength, determination and authenticity
Inspiring women to live the life they want, with confidence and self-assurance (through self-care practises, empowerment and stress management)
Finding life balance and harmony
Supporting anxious feelings & thoughts
Navigating THE biggest transition of women’s lives (pregnancy and postnatal support)
Guiding through big & small life transitions (marriage, babies, grief, loss)
Compassion fatigue for helping professionals
Developing creative and mindful practices
In everything I do, I encourage women to share their inner most feelings, the honest ones (even if it's ugly, especially if it's ugly). I love working with women because their emotions are raw, genuine and bittersweet. Women have so much inside them -- waiting for the right opportunity to let it out.
