Sabrina wants to help you use art as a means of communicating with different parts of yourself that may be harder to access on a day-to-day basis and directly through verbal communication.
Sabrina remembers how much art had helped her in her life at a time when her chronic pain was intense. Creating a small drawing each day was the only movement she could manage. By focusing on the drawing, she was able to move with less pain and felt proud of accomplishing something by the end of the day.
In her final year of high school when she had to choose her future career, she was lying in bed contemplating her interests, which included psychology and art. Wanting to combine the two, she believed she had invented the term “art therapy.” The school guidance counselor informed her that there was a Master’s program in Art Therapy offered in Montreal, and from that moment on, she pursued this ambitious goal.
Today, Sabrina continues to expand her knowledge through ongoing training in areas such as the mind-body connection, neuroscience, mindfulness, trauma, sensations, and creativity.
No artistic talent is required for art therapy. The idea is that the therapist will guide the client in using specific materials or activities for therapeutic purposes.
