Canadian Certified Counsellor
Hi, I'm Samantha.
I am a Certified Clinical Counsellor with a Masters degree in Psychotherapy and a specialization in Art Therapy. Aiding neurodivergent and 2SLGBTQ+ folks in communicating, connecting and self actualizing is my passion.
I often support folks with:
Non verbal support and creative self expression
Self-esteem issues and perfectionism
Emotional regulation including anger management, anxiety and depression
Improving executive function (motivation, task initiation, time management)
Masking and authentic connection
Life path and values exploration
My main approach is through art therapy, which is a useful tool for self expression, exploration and communication. It can help us to interpret, express and resolve emotions and thoughts. Collaborative art can also be a fun way to build connections between partners or family members.
I maintain a safe and nonjudgemental space in which clients can build connections, explore their values/identities, and deconstruct conflict. My practice is solution focused, humanistic, and is informed by systems theory and psychodynamic theory.
In my personal life, I am an artist, a D&D dungeon master, an animal lover and a gamer. I often find myself gamifying daily tasks and searching for the perfect metaphor to describe my experience.
I look forward to accompanying you on your journey!
