I work with individuals or groups depending on your needs.

I can work in your location or home as required.

I can also provide a private space for you to work in.

I work primarily in the Pitt Meadows and Maple Ridge area, but also in Port Coquitlam, Coquitlam, Port Moody, and Burnaby as needed.

 

You have probably heard the phrase “a picture is worth a thousand words.” This is what Art Therapy is about. It can be described as the pairing of psychotherapy and creativity. It can be defined as using the process of creating as a healing tool; using symbols and images to explore thoughts, ideas, feelings and/or memories; using creativity to express oneself; or a communication tool when words are not enough or one does not have the right words.

Art has the potential to change lives and in profound ways. When words are not enough, we turn to images and symbols to tell our stories. And in telling our stories through art, we can find a path to healing and wellness, emotional reparation, recovery, and ultimately, transformation” (www.internationalarttherapy.org).

Art Therapy uses the process of creating images to explore thoughts, emotions, memories, or situations.  A trained Art Therapist is a counsellor who has specialized training in the Art Therapy process. She will support, guide and  encourage you through the art process and help you to explore any feelings that arise.

It’s an exciting way to work on personal issues.

Specializing in Art Therapy and Therapeutic Scrapbooking

Does this sound familiar?

“I work all day, come home to make dinner, drive my kids around, do paper work until one in the morning, and head to bed . . . to find I can't get to sleep!”

That's very common in this day and age. Our bodies are so ramped up running from one thing to another that they don't have time to regulate and slow down.

We all need to take some time out in our busy weeks just for ourselves. A time to reflect, to slow down, and to recuperate.

That's what a weekly Art Therapy counselling session can be for you.

A time for you. A time to reflect. And a time to heal your body and mind.

Give me a call. I'd love to hear from you!
