Who Can Do Art Therapy?

Art therapy is for anyone who is open to exploring their thoughts, emotions, difficulties and inner world through creative expression.  You do not have to consider yourself an artist or have any previous experience. While the final art piece can be and often is discussed between the  therapist and the client, the process and experience of creating is equally important.

Why Do Art Therapy?
  • Express your emotions safely in a contained way

  • Get unstuck

  • Gain self-understanding and self-love

  • Receive unconditional support from an art therapist

  • Solve problems and overcome obstacles in life

  • Rediscover your creative calling

  • Overcome self-doubt and quiet your inner critic

Art works well with tweens/teens as they are naturally creative and drawn to art-making. Through therapeutic art techniques, teens and tweens can find the space to express their inner worlds through images, which some find much easier to do than through words.

About Hailey

- Masters of Creative Arts Therapies: Art Therapy Specialisation - Concordia University

- Professional Member of the Canadian Art Therapy Association

My life path has lead me on a journey around the world, from being a teacher, to becoming an art therapist.
I have had the privilege of doing art therapy with holocaust survivors, sexual abuse survivors, refugees, adolescents, children, couples and families. In 2016 I spent a year doing art therapy with youth in an orphanage in Guatemala.  In 2017 I opened my private practice in London, Ontario. I know and have witnessed firsthand the power and healing that comes from having the courage to be vulnerable and create, even when you do not know the next step. Therein lies resilience and the ability to face the world with newfound confidence. I wholeheartedly believe in the strength of my clients.

“Creating is never about changing yourself; it is about meeting yourself, probing deep into your own core. Creation wants only to fulfil your deepest desire: to know and accept yourself as you are."
