Michelle Denis, RP, ExAT

Registered Psychotherapist, Expressive Arts Therapist and Hand in Hand Parenting Professional
Home Toronto Toronto Ontario Cell Phone: 4168343274 Website: http://michelledenis.ca


As an Expressive Arts Therapist, I encourage gentle and curious observation of the inner somatic, sensory and emotional experience during the artistic process, as a way to deepen self understanding and acceptance, and to find resolution and healing from your own body wisdom. The artistic process becomes both a container for the work, and a vehicle of expression, creativity and healing. I work with women, men, parents and groups.

I have done further studies in Autosomatic Training, Hakomi Somatic and Mindfulness based psychotherapy, Somatic Experiencing, Compassion Focused Therapy, Focusing, and Hand in Hand Parenting – a trauma informed, play and connection based style of parenting.

I am informed by a foundation in mindfulness meditation, yoga, 5 Rhythms Dance Practice, and a passionate interest in the latest neuroscience of mind/body integration and healing from childhood trauma.

Through an ongoing community based practice of learning, listening, evolving conversations and action, I am committed to working sensitively with systemic issues of oppression.

I trust in the wisdom and creativity of each individual, in the sensory and playful experience of the arts, and in the cultivation of mindful curiosity and self compassion, to foster re-connection to our most integrated, peaceful and joyful selves.

Locations: I work only online at this time. I can be found at The Mindfulness Clinic downtown Toronto and I work in private practice.

My fee in private practice: $150 (some sliding scale spots may be available)
