Expressive Arts Therapy in Yellowknife, NT
I am an Expressive Arts Therapist. I offer a client-centered, body oriented approach that integrates somatic experiencing and with art-making in visual arts, music, movement or theatre. It works for skilled artists, beginners, and for people who feel creatively blocked. I also offer online sessions.What Is Expressive Arts Therapy? Individual Sessions Therapy Groups
I am a Registered Therapeutic Counsellor, Expressive Arts Therapist and arts-based facilitator. I offer a space for clients to deepen and to shift their present experience, both by using the arts and by accessing the felt sense.
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.
