I am an expressive arts and trauma therapist currently residing and practicing online and in-person. I have been in practice for 8 years and I hold both a diploma from the CREATE Institute in Toronto and a Master’s Degree from the European Graduate School in Sass- Fee Switzerland in Expressive Arts Therapy. I have also completed Level 1 & 2 at the Sensorimotor Psychotherapy Institute among other trainings in mental health therapy.

I work using a blend of expressive arts therapy and sensorimotor psychotherapy. This is therapy utilizing multiple art forms combined with body based trauma therapy. I believe the body keeps the score and I think that this blend of these two therapies is an effective way to gently access different parts of the body and mind. Working with the arts or the body are not mandatory either, I also regularly work with talk therapy, mindfulness and cognitive behavioural therapy. It is not uncommon for an entire session to be spent talking.


I am your companion throughout your process of overcoming your difficulties, traumatic life events and opening up to a resourced and healthy life. You are the expert of your life and I want to use my skills to help. I consider it a privilege to support you and approach each session with gentleness and genuine curiosity. I am interested in you, your life and relationship to your environment.

I have experience working with first responders, students, survivors of interpersonal violence and abuse such as sexual assault and domestic violence, adults with a history of child-hood sexual abuse, people with diagnoses of post- traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and complex post- traumatic stress disorder (C-PTSD).

I can help with sleep issues, anxiety, depression, loneliness, grief & loss, stress related to chronic illness such as multiple chemical sensitivities, persistent feelings of sadness and feeling a lack of meaning and joy in life.
