Connect & Create.


 

Combining both art & therapy to support those seeking hope and connection through life's challenges

 

Hi, I'm Lauren

registered clinical counsellor & Professional Art Therapist

 

 

I am a Registered Clinical Counsellor and Art Therapist working in Vancouver, BC. I use both art + psychotherapy to support clients with mental health challenges. I offer in-person and online counselling sessions to youth (13+), young adults and working professionals (20s-30s) who are struggling with a variety of challenges in their lives. Whether it be big transitions, big feelings, mental health concerns, changing beliefs, or feeling stuck, these spaces can be difficult to endure alone. My goal is to help you feel seen and heard while helping you process difficult emotions and overcome blocks one step at a time.

Meeting you where you're at,

one step at a time.

In all my sessions, I use relational & collaborative approaches that are tailored to the needs and personalities of each person. We all live diverse lives with unique experiences and perspectives. Therefore, individuals are the experts of their own lives. I'm here to listen, support and work alongside you, without judgement, towards your goals.

I work, play and create on the unceded and ancestral territory of the hən̓q̓əmin̓əm̓ and Sḵwx̱wú7mesh speaking peoples, the xʷməθkʷəy̓əm (Musqueam), Sḵwx̱wú7mesh (Squamish), and səlilwətaɬ (Tsleil-Waututh) Nations, and has been stewarded by them since time immemorial. 

Vancouver is located on territory that was never ceded, or given up to the Crown by the Musqueam, Squamish, or Tsleil-Waututh peoples. The term unceded acknowledges the dispossession of the land and the inherent rights that Musqueam, Squamish, and Tsleil-Waututh hold to the territory. The term serves as a reminder that Musqueam, Squamish, and Tsleil-Waututh have never left their territories and will always retain their jurisdiction and relationships with the territory.
