Art Psychotherapy

Online. International.
Individuals and couples.

Art psychotherapy, with Shawna, combines creative sensemaking, somatic psychology, and psychotherapy. She specializes in the area of neurodiversity and complex trauma.

In a safe, welcoming, and virtual space, Shawna helps you understand and navigate complex feelings, thoughts, and experiences. The use of elements such as form, colour, texture, sound and movement are used to help with personal exploration, discovery and processing. Healing and meaningful transformation take place in individual sessions, and over time. Sessions are tailored to your individual needs and goals.
