Johanne Ascoli

Expressive Arts Therapist
Home Vancouver Vancouver British Columbia V6H 1R2 Canada Website: Express your heART


Johanne courageously shifted her life and returned to her original loves— creative expression, Mother Earth, psychology and spirituality—after two decades as a strategic public policy and legislative advisor at various levels of the government, including with the BC government in service of survivors of violence. Drawing on her passions, skills, training and lived experience, she now supports others in healing the soul wounds that keep them from living the vibrant lives they so long for and deserve; the wounds that keep them separate from their sacred relationship to self, others and the Earth.

Trained as an expressive arts therapist, a yoga instructor, and transformational facilitator, Johanne offers soul-informed, trauma-informed, healing centred and person centred expressive arts therapy workshops and sessions to groups and individuals.

While her focus is primarily on women (self identifying), she also designs creatively experiential workshops for corporate and non-profit organizations to facilitate embodied learning, expanded awareness and, where needed, healing using the expressive arts. Workshops can de designed to suit a variety of goals and needs, including team bonding and relationship building, strategic visioning, inclusivity, diversity, gender and cultural sensitivity, and trauma-informed practice.
