Hello, my name is Melinda and I am a Registered Psychotherapist (Qualifying) who specializes in Art Therapy. With my therapeutic approach, I practice client-centered therapy, with a focus on mindfulness, compassion, empathy, and ensuring a safe and judgment-free space to express oneself. Each person who enters a session is the writer of their own story, I am there for support and to help you navigate through your therapeutic journey. We will work together to untangle any negative thoughts and feelings you may be experiencing.
It can be difficult to express emotions using only words, this is where creativity and art can be beneficial. Weaving art into a therapy session can allow the client to externalize those emotions and reflect on what was created. The focus is on the process, prior art experience is not necessary for the session.
I understand that beginning anything new can be scary and you may feel uncertain. That is okay! Feel free to check out my website for more information and we can set up a free consultation to ensure I am the right fit for your healing journey.
