Mina ("mee-na")  |  she/hers

Welcome! I'm an art therapist who believes in the power of making art with intention, connection, and in the spirit of play. I'm a white settler living and working on the unceded, traditional and ancestral territories of the Lekwungen/Songhees and Esquimalt peoples, also known as "Victoria, BC". I have a Bachelor's Degree in Child and Youth Care from UVic and a Post-Baccalaureate Diploma from the Kutenai Art Therapy Institute.

 

My approach to art therapy is rooted in exploration and awareness. I'm committed to approaching therapy in a way that aligns with my values. This means that I'm political in my life and practice, and I seek to hold space in an anti-oppressive way while working in my community. I strive to meet folks where they are at and offer my services in an inclusive manner. My practice of art therapy is trauma-informed, multi-modal, and expressive. 

When I'm not working, I love to sew my own clothes, improvise music on my ukulele, and make collages out of old magazines. I'm always excited to find new materials and methods to explore with my clients.
