About Carrie

Welcome to my website.

My goal with the site is to share some information about myself and the therapy that I specialize in.  My counselling services are unique to Thunder Bay. Here is a bit about me:

I am a registered Master of Social Work (MSW) Counsellor and Certified Expressive Art Therapist (EXAT). I obtained my MSW from Lakehead University and my area of specialty has been trauma counselling in the area of domestic violence with women and children.

My areas of expertise include anxiety, depression, loss, and healing from traumatic events. For a number of years I also worked in the field of addictions and use a harm reduction approach.  I have been a counsellor in the Thunder Bay area working at the Thunder Bay Counselling Centre and Children’s Centre Thunder Bay.

My passion for helping individuals led me to explore the modality of Expressive Arts to help people begin the healing process. Expressive Arts is an evidence informed, cutting edge approach to healing. One common goal I have always maintained is to help people deal with day to day struggles and heal from life’s unfortunate events.  I feel expressing one’s self through art, music, movement, writing, dance and drama will give you a new way to look at self-care and healing.

Please explore my website to learn about Expressive Art Therapy and  see if it is right for you.  I would love to hear from you with any questions you may have!
