Welcome to ArtTherapist.ca website, formerly the Art Therapy in Canada website. This new page has been incubating in my mind, body and soul for some time now, and I am so happy to finally be sharing it with you now.
When I first began this site over 15 years ago, I was a newly trained Art Therapist, eager to share with the world the wonderful world of art therapy. It was one of the first pages up on the Internet with resources on art therapy including information about associations around the world. Art therapy books, conference announcements, plus my own workshops. I even had a discussion board which turned out to be a bit cumbersome with all the spammers, so I discontinued it. Today there are many sites with excellent resources which you will find a list of links here.
My purpose of relaunching arttherapist.ca is to share with you my experiences as an art therapist to others and to myself. Over the years I have tweaked the way I balance work and my creativity. While being an art therapist certainly brings out my creative side, it’s not enough. I have found great value both personally and professionally to explore my creative side more in-depth through my inner-child and inner-muse. It is my hope that these pages will reflect that journey so that you may pick and choose the creative tools that work for you.
Creative expression is but a breath away!
