The healing arts have been with us since ancient times. Combining psychotherapy and expressive arts therapy is an innovative and effective way to create change in our lives. It assist us in gaining clarity, expanding our mindset, and finding new perspectives to problems in our lives. It can be used as a tool for grounding/self-regulation and in contemplative practices. The creative process provides a path to connect with our Self and inner intelligence.
Our ancestors have practiced methods of expanding consciousness for healing, self-exploration, ritualistic use, and scientific/creative inspiration going back thousands of years. As psychedelic-assisted therapy continues to emerge in mental health care, expressive arts therapy can support the integration of these experiences and guide intentional change.
I believe in building community where we all feel safe, valued, and in connection with our creative spirit. I aim to offer support and guidance as you explore your own life experiences and problematic areas to seek understanding and change.

About Lindsay (she/her)...
After completing a Masters in Counselling Psychology I worked in several mental health clinics. During this time I developed a curiosity for the psycho-spiritual aspects of mental illness, psychological suffering and problems in living.
This curiosity led in several directions. I pursued training in expressive art therapy with Prairie Institute of Expressive Art Therapy. Having a lifelong interest in creative outlets intuitively led me in this direction. I believe in the power of creativity to help us restore our health and thrive.
Another discovery was the work of Dr. Stan Grof, a psychiatrist, pioneer in psychedelic research and a founder of transpersonal psychology. In 2018, I started practicing Holotropic Breathwork, an experiential technique developed by Stan and Christina Grof for entering holotropic states (non-ordinary states) of consciousness.
These two therapeutic approaches have shaped my personal self exploration and influenced how I approach my work. I am grateful for many people in my life who have helped to support and guide my journey.
