Welcome to Seasons Therapy
I am so glad you are here.
I am a life long learner, a parent, grandparent and loyal friend. My life experiences and graduate work in psychotherapy and art therapy allow me to be a compassionate and informed practitioner. I understand how life can deliver unexpected curve balls. I also recognize the tremendous courage it takes to seek change and to accept support. It is an honour for me to accompany individuals towards improving insights, skills and general wellbeing as they navigate life’s challenges.
Why I became a psychotherapist
I came to the profession of Art Psychotherapy after a 20-year career in teaching. Having worked with children and teens I was privileged to witness how the arts helped students with self-regulation, communication skills and how it improved their social interactions.
On a personal level, I experienced the healing power of art on my journey through trauma, grief and loss. These experiences formed my deep desire to support others in difficult times. To fulfill my passion for helping others live their best life I pursued graduate studies in Edmonton, Alberta and obtained a Masters of Psychotherapy and Spirituality with Art Therapy Specialization.
