Heather Goodwin, EXAT, BA, Hons, Art Therapist in Toronto
I'm a multi-disciplinary creative and expressive arts therapist. Basically this means that I use a wide variety of art forms in my practice as well as talk therapy. In working together, we could use anything from drama, visual arts, creative writing, poetry, movement, music and more. We may even move from one art form to another to see if there are any new discoveries waiting. The art form depends on what feels best in the moment and what feels right for you. You don't need a background in the arts, only a willingness to create.
By exploring our lives through the arts we allow ourselves to discover previously unknown strengths and to see our stories in a new light. Through my practice, I offer a caring and safe place to open up and explore in a way that is client-centred, collaborative and often playful.
I am a graduate of the CREATE Institute's Expressive Arts Therapy program and a voice-over artist. In my practice, I've worked a number of different populations including prisoners, seniors, adults living with life changing diagnoses, caregivers, children, and youth who are questioning their gender and/or sexuality.
