My honest self-exploration and creative expression have been sources of healing for me throughout my life. My calling is to help people heal themselves with a comprehensive and holistic approach. 

 

In my clinical practice, I integrate 

movement and pranayama (breathing techniques) with traditional talk therapy, Buddhist psychotherapy, and Art Therapy and Play Therapy.

 

Using a mindfulness-based approach, the focus is strongly rooted in compassion, acceptance and reconciliation therapies.

I specialize in grief and loss, trauma, attachment issues, chronic pain, anxiety complexities, and depression. 

I work with children (7+), adolescents, and men and women.

Tiffany, MA, RP, DVATI

Registered Psychotherapist
I hold a Master's in Counselling Psychology and am registered with the CRPO as a Registered Psychotherapist (RP). I wrote my thesis on grief and grieving, and created a comprehensive therapy guide and group format called Moving Through Grief. I also hold a post graduate Thanatology Certificate from Sheridan College. 

 

Professional Art Therapist

I hold a post Master's certification in Art Therapy (DVATI) and am registered with the Canadian Art Therapy Association (CATA). My capstone project focused on the neuroscience of trauma and the benefits of a mindfulness-based art psychotherapy protocol. My project led to the development of the BETH (Be Empowered Trauma Healing) program; a 10-week expressive-arts based program to help individuals manage the symptoms of trauma.

 

Play Therapy
Art therapy brought me to earning my Play Therapy credentials through the Canadian Association for Play Therapy.
