    About the Host:

    I grew up in a family of renowned artists and creative individuals.  At an early age I came to understand
    the essence of art, its amazing potential, and the ability to heal that lay beneath it.
     
    Although I was an outgoing child with a real spirit and enthusiasm for life, I experienced great difficulty
    when it came to expressing my emotions.  My father, who among many things was a beautiful artist and
    photographer, surprised me on my 10th birthday with a camera.  Without intention my father had provided
    me with the key to unlocking my creativity and emotions.  The camera quickly became my means of
    expression.

    With a passion for photography and an innate desire to help others, I went on to obtain an Honors B.F.A.
    in Still Photography and an Honors Master's Level Diploma in Art Therapy.

    Prior to my becoming an Art Therapist I owned and operated a children';s photography camp called CAMP
    CAMERA.  It was this experience that fueled my desire to further my education and combine my passion
    for photography and my desire to help others into a successful Art & Photo Therapy Practice. 

    I have spent the better part of 20 years working with clients in childcare facilities, schools, multidisciplinary
    centres, hospitals and first nation reserves.  I specialize in Photo Therapy and have perfected the use of
    photographs, film, and projected imagery in therapy with clients struggling with low self-esteem and
    confidence.  I have been blessed with the opportunity to help many recognize their self-worth, the gifts
    they possess and the potential that life holds for them.
