To continue her postgraduate learning, she attended the Toronto Art Therapy Institute, and graduated with her Diploma of Art Psychotherapy.
Ally has experience supporting people of all ages, from toddlers to long-term care residents.
In her postgraduate education, she worked as a student art therapist with a variety of populations and mental health concerns.
Ally's personal history of navigating childhood (and adulthood) anxiety, as well as parental separation and divorce help her to better connect with her young clients through their shared experiences.
Ally is most passionate about working with children and teens, although she's always happy to support adults and seniors who are interested in art therapy!
She provides a safe, supportive and compassionate space for her clients to feel comfortable and confident sharing their difficult experiences and feelings.
Ally approaches every unique art therapy journey with curiosity and care, while welcoming the creative process in session to promote self-exploration, growth and healing.
Ally was voted "Nicest Person" in her senior year of high school.
