Cynthia (she/her) is a passionate second-year art therapist intern at the Kutenai Art Therapy Institute in Nelson B.C. In addition, she holds a Bachelor of Arts degree in Psychology from the University of Victoria and a Diploma in Photography from Fanshawe College.
With a deep commitment to inclusivity, Cynthia focuses her art therapy practice on children and youth with diverse abilities, as well as parent-child family art therapy. Her approach is grounded in trauma-informed principles, emphasizing client-centered techniques and strength-based methods. Cynthia firmly believes in the transformative power of the creative process and psychotherapy as tools for facilitating self-exploration. While she has a passion for all forms of art, she particularly enjoys mixed-media collage and clay molding.
Outside of her role as an art therapist, Cynthia has a passion for holistic well-being. Every week, you can find her taking a cold plunge at Dallas Road or trekking up Pkols with her rescue dog, Midge. Additionally, she is a dedicated bookworm, finding endless creative inspiration within the pages of fantasy novels.
