MA, Arts-based / Somatic Psychotherapist and Coach
I serve creatives
in coming into their bodies
so they can lead richer,
more relational and fulfilling lives.
I work with the fundamental impulse in all of us that is creator/creatrix.
Some of us are disconnected from - or even unaware of - this part of ourselves. For others, it is a major force in our lives (artists, healers, entrepreneurs, innovators, etc). Wherever we land in the cultivation of this relationship, my therapeutic practice uses creative process to support those who are motivated towards or find themselves at the edge of transformation.
I support clients in:
cultivating richer relationships with self, others and community
deepening creative engagement with life
reconnecting with the body/soma
healing and expanding sexuality and eroticism
I am aware of what an expensive ordeal it is to find the right therapist.
I offer a free consultation session so we can assess if we are a good fit for each other.

All sessions are currently offered online.
Fees are quoted in Canadian Dollars.
In some cases, I may be able to offer in-person outdoor sessions.
Please contact me to discuss this option.
In an increasingly complex world, we are called to develop flexibility, resilience and creative responsibility, while constantly acknowledging and serving our relationship to the whole. I use a blend of Expressive Art Therapy, somatic practices, attachment therapy and presencing to support clients.
I do my best work supporting clients who possess intact curiosity and learning instincts yet find themselves navigating some sort of creative gridlock, be that in relationships, career, sexuality, artistic practice, intergenerational legacy or spirituality. I also thrive with clients wishing to deepen their experience of body and connect in new ways with their physicality in light of intergenerational trauma.
It is not necessary to have prior skill or experience in the arts to engage in arts-based sessions and not all sessions need make use of this modality.
$110 / hour
Sliding scale available. Please inquire for options.
Note: I currently do not work with insurance providers.
