Clinical practice and intervention methods :

In November 2021 I started my small private practice. I have worked supporting neurodiverse children and adults. I practice non-directive and directive art therapy, integrating tools from Gestalt, Humanistic, Cognitive Behavioural, and Dialectical Behavioural therapies. Recognizing that most of these practices come from appropriated ancestral healing practices and knowledge by Western Psychology. During my graduate studies, I had the opportunity to learn and practice art therapy with neurodiverse children and adults at the Center for Arts in Human Development (CAHD from Concordia University) and the Children's Psychiatric program at the Jewish General Hospital. I do my best to: - work from a humanistic and decolonial intersectional feminist standpoint. - provide a brave and safe space to empower your therapeutic process and progress. - respect your pace and little by little support you to enlarge your circle of tolerance to broaden your resiliency.
