Alex is a student art therapist who is passionate about the use of imagination and stories to support participants in discovering their own paths to health and healing.
Combining storytelling with the creative freedom available through art, Alex gently encourages participants to express themselves and gain new perspectives. This creative approach supports a greater sense of self-identity, and belonging, and builds resilience. During his studies at the Toronto Art Therapy Institute (TATI) Alex explored the use of role-playing games alongside art therapy. He now supports participants in using their own strengths, resources, and imaginations to tackle life challenges, recognize their abilities, and express who they are truly.
Supporting a diverse range of clients in various social locations, Alex believes in a trauma-informed, strengths-based, person-centered, and anti-oppressive approach towards therapy and support.
Alex lives with his partner Meghan and their two cats Henry and Lincoln in Mississauga ON, Canada.
