Gretchen Ladd M.Ed, RCC, RCAT - Clinical Counsellor & Registered Art Therapist

I offer small group workshops in a warm and friendly studio environment.

Creative Arts Workshops are open to anyone interested in taking the time and space to connect with themselves through creative process. The art making in these workshops is focused on building a compassionate approach to personal expression and no previous art experience is necessary.

Professional Development Workshops are designed for art therapists and practitioners in related fields (expressive arts therapists, counselors, social workers, healthcare workers etc) who seek to broaden their therapeutic skills and learn more about art and healing.   

If you would like to be on the email list with announcements for upcoming workshops please email me here.
