Why Art Therapy?

Art Therapy is unique in its ability to let us peak into our subconscious and make the invisible...visible. It is the practice of using imagery, storytelling, sandplay, drama, poetry, movement, nature, dreamwork, and visual arts together, in an integrated way, to foster human growth, development, and healing. You 

DO NOT need to have artistic ability or special talent to participate and all ages including children, teens, and adults can benefit from it.

Did you wake up and decide today was the day to start feeling better?

Registered Art Therapist | Registered Theraputic Counsellor

Welcome to Westcoast Expressive: my private practice located on the wild west coast of Canada in Tofino, BC. I hold many hats but mostly I identify as a mother, an artist, teller of stories and above all else a wisdom seeker using creativity as a tool to discovery. Art Therapy allows you to better understand and express yourself in unique ways, finding solutions as yet unimagined and discover layers of meaning as yet unexplored. It is a truly powerful experience that I would love to share with you.

Tla-o-qui-aht First Nations. 

It is an immeasurable privilege to inhabit these beautiful lands and I invite members of Indigenous community to inquire about the free counselling program supported by Jordans Principle
