Expressive Arts Therapy in Yellowknife, NT
Human existence has always been marked by the presence of art and ritual. I'm an expressive arts therapist and registered therapeutic counsellor. I work with individuals, families and groups to explore, transform and to move through transition with the arts. By engaging the whole self, together we are often able to access resources and perspectives that had previously been invisible. Expressive arts can be very effective for people for whom talk therapy has been unsuccessful, as well as for children and families.Book A Session
I am a Registered Therapeutic Counsellor, Expressive Arts Therapist and arts-based facilitator. I offer a safe space for clients to go deeply into a range of experiences and emotions, allowing for both subtle and profound shifts to take place.
I also lead vocal improvisation workshops as well as arts-based workshops that explore self-expression and creativity. I frequently work with groups in music and documentary film, bringing a strength-based approach to musical collaboration and personal storytelling on film. I also teach partner dance and run an improv choir. More about me
Love to sing? Maybe you read music, maybe you don’t. For this choir, all you need is a love of music and a desire to explore your voice in community with others. You will learn and employ basic structures to vocal improvisation, explore your creativity through music, build confidence with your voice, and co-create original songs. It’s going to be lots of fun, and you can work at your level. If you like to sing harmony with the radio, then you will love this!
If you’re curious, come to a free tryout on September 20 at 7pm. It’s not an audition, just a chance to come sing in a group and see how it feels for you.
This art form has helped me to uncover new musical ideas, deepen my connection to my voice, and free up my creativity. It has been incredibly fun and healing for me, and I am so excited to share it with you.
