Are you a young adult seeking guidance or change in your life? Are you looking to share your struggles with someone helpful and caring who will listen to you? Are you struggling with relationships or are you bothered by your moods or engaging in behaviours that are not helpful for you? Are you experiencing family conflict? Are you feeling isolated, stressed, worried or anxious? Do you need guidance with next steps in life or in your education or workplace domain? Do you need support and understanding with your sexual and gender identity?
I am a Registered Clinical Counsellor and Art Therapist with extensive experience supporting the emerging adult population (late teens, early adulthood) of diverse cultural backgrounds. Come and share your struggles, questions, concerns, worries, needs and desires with someone helpful and caring who will listen to you without judgement. I can help you navigate your life, your inner world and your relationships. I can help you find what it takes to understand yourself better, know and use your strengths, improve your relationships, overcome your fears and uncover your values, interests, thinking patterns, and courage so that you can be your true self and live a fulfilling life.
I place importance on understanding a person’s context and intersections of identity (family of origin, gender and sexual identity, religion/spirituality, neurodiversity, ethnicity, age, work/career, etc) and how such factors inform worldview, behaviour and values. I hope to be able to help you attune to your values and live authentically with self-compassion and self-acceptance, which can often be challenging in this messy and unjust world.
My style is compassionate, creative and relational; founded on a strong collaborative alliance that will allow you to feel safe and cared for. I will strive to walk with you and witness your path non-judgmentally. I will listen carefully, explore creative solutions, get curious about you, challenge you as needed, and offer a fresh alternative perspective. Most of all, I will be your guide in discovering the inner resources and wisdom you already have.
I know it can be intimidating and feel uncomfortable to reach out to a total stranger for help but I hope that you do!
- I hold a specialization in Art Therapy.
- Art therapy is expressive and experiential and encompasses the use of a wide range of artistic materials to facilitate self-awareness and healing.
- Art-making helps to deal effectively and safely with difficult personal issues and it helps with emotional regulation and enhances brain functioning.
- You do not need to have any prior experience or artistic skills to participate in art therapy as it is more about the process itself.
