Learn how to use our self expression to shift patterns, shed what is no longer fitting and navigate to a life we love. All with a brush stroke, movement made or a creation that tells our story in ways words never could. You DO NOT need to be artistic and all ages can benefit from Art Therapy

Registered Art Therapist | Registered Theraputic Counsellor

Welcome to Westcoast Expressive located in the Unceded ƛaɁuukwiatḥ Territory, Tofino, BC. Here you will find a safe space to be heard, witnessed and supported. I provide creative discovery from a trauma informed lens grounded in polyvagal theory to soothe on the cellular level and teach how our creativity can be a  conduit to our healing. It would be my honour to walk beside you, support difficult conversations with an open heart and provide a space to evolve. I love what I do and I would love to share it with you.
