Biography

My passions include art, people and culture. I love learning about people and the places they chose to call home. Everyone has a story and I long to hear it. I have been fortunate enough to travel to Malawi, Cambodia and Kolkata to work with people. Most recently I worked at a Crisis Recovery Centre in Kolkata, India directly with girls rescued from human trafficking and trained the staff how to utilize Expressive Arts principles in their existing practice. I have co-facilitated a drop-in program for refugee children and a concurrent children’s socialization group/parent group both in Toronto, Ontario. I have studied therapeutic clowning and face paint for both small and large scale events. I am involved with a wonderfully resourceful team called ‘Art With A Heart’ based out of Whitby, Ontario. We have facilitated Expressive Arts practice in Women’s shelters, a youth drop in centre and local Maternity home for those at-risk. We have also facilitated many programs with seniors both in the community and in long-term care homes. We have co-facilitated many camps for kids. I also work in private practice within a wide range of ages and abilities and was employed with SafeHope Home facilitating and implementing the day program for women exiting sex trafficking.

My adventures began with an undergraduate degree in Psychology followed by a concurrent diploma and Masters in Expressive Art Therapy with a minor in Psychology and a thesis focus of Trauma and the Arts. I have certificates in ASIST, group facilitation from COPE Mental Health, Dance/Movement Therapy with Older Adults from Concordia University, Psychodrama training from the Toronto Centre for Psychodrama and Artist/Educator Foundations Course from the Royal Conservatory and most recently I have trained with SA Foundation World Training Centre in Vancouver. Learning is an on-going and exciting venture!

Notes

“Everyone Has Resources” Herbert Eberhart

I heard this message repeatedly throughout my three years at the CREATE Institute in Toronto and at EGS in Switzerland, not only from Professor Eberhart but others as well. Time and time again it allows me to reframe how I am with others that I work with. This reframe first made its practical appearance when I worked in Community Mental Health and Out-Patient Crisis Intervention within the hospital setting. I also learned the valuable skill of presence and how to just be with others during challenging times while using different creative art forms to explore these challenges. I have always had a playful side and find great joy in exploring new ways to approach things. These principles have taught me to remain curious about life and new outcomes.
