Psychotherapy & Creative Arts Therapy

Gaining insight into how we work and what we want can allow us to develop the skills and resilience we need to navigate our world.  Traumatic experiences, mental health issues, physical illness or injury, and oppression are just a few of the challenging life events that call for unique coping skills.  

My focus in therapy is to work with you to bring your strengths into the development of strategies to not just cope, but grow and thrive.  You have options in how you navigate the relationship between thoughts, feelings, and actions - my role as a therapist is to help you find the balance that works best for you.

If you have questions about how expressive arts and somatic psychotherapy can help you address the areas where you struggle, you can call for a free phone consultation - (709) 730 2524.

- A Brief Introduction -


Curiosity and creativity have been driving forces behind my personal practice and professional career.  

I’m a Certified Canadian Counsellor and Art Therapist.  I received my Master's degree in Counselling Psychology - Art Therapy from Athabasca University as part of a joint program with the Vancouver Art Therapy Institute.  My approach to counselling is person-centred, trauma-informed, and inclusive.  


I am also a Registered Massage Therapist and Certified Yoga Teacher.  I incorporate functional movement and body-based interventions that address the physical manifestations of experiences such as anxiety and trauma that profoundly affect physical well-being.  My massage therapy and yoga practice has included clinical and hospital work with clients dealing with acute injury, complex functional problems, and chronic health concerns. 


I approach each client’s unique situation with a holistic eye and work with clients to find what works for them.  Our mental health is tied closely to our physical health.  Through my practice and academic work, I have come to see the effects of anxiety, stress, and trauma on the body as well as how physical health and functional balance can influence mental health.


After years of personal practice, I pursued yoga teacher training in a therapeutic yoga lineage through Yoga Therapy Toronto in 2014.  My approach to yoga focuses on engaging the breath with mindful movement to encourage embodied self-awareness. I present group and personal yoga as an opportunity to learn about yourself, practice self-compassion, and develop strength, flexibility, and confidence.  


My therapeutic practice focuses on awareness, embodiment, and expression as means to develop insight, regulation, and agency.
