I live in London, Ontario with my spouse, our retired “therapeutic dog” Honey and cat Ruty (named after the rutabaga farm where he was born). I specialize in Art Therapy and play-based approaches as well as children, youth and families who struggle with anxiety and trauma. I enjoy working with people of all ages and backgrounds.
I value meeting people where they are at, celebrating individual and family strengths, and understanding the whole picture of your life story. I am grateful to witness my clients working towards more healthy and productive ways of relating to their loved ones and themselves, as well as increasing their satisfaction with life and work.
I enjoy working with individuals, families and groups. I can help with anxiety, depression, attachment issues, social and learning difficulties, ADHD, family illness, conflictual family dynamics, abuse and trauma, domestic violence, dual diagnosis, and psychosomatic symptoms.
Starting soon: Wise Trees Art, Play and Yoga Group for children 5-8 yrs old who struggle with anxiety. Wednesdays, Aug 3- Oct 5, 2016. This group is partially funded through the Agape Foundation of London and supported by Family Services Thames Valley. Find out more: http://arttherapyartsmart.com/yogatherapy-groups-for-kids
