A note from Ann and Faranak
Hello and Welcome!
We are two registered clinical counsellors and art therapists currently living, working, learning and playing on the unceded and stolen lands of Musqueam, Squamish and Tsleil-Waututh First Nations. We have been facilitating community-based art therapy workshops for the past three years, focusing on a variety of themes and bringing diverse populations within our community together. In our workshops, we strive to create an atmosphere that is warm, welcoming and conducive to the creative process. We have witnessed the power of art therapy in both personal and professional realms and this is why we are so excited about sharing it with you all at Nightingale. Professionally, we are passionate about having a culturally sensitive and trauma-informed lens that aims to empower and encourage our participants. At a personal level, we are lovers of colour, sunshine, being goofy, psychology geeks, and relatable memes all day.
We look forward to meeting and creating together!
Your questions answered
All plans are different, but if your benefits cover the work of Registered Clinical Counsellors (R.C.C.)—which the vast majority of plans currently do—then you can submit the receipt you receive from Nightingale for reimbursement.
While traditional art classes focus on technique, skill and the final product, the focus of art therapy is on the process of creating rather than the finished product. No art experience is needed for you to engage in this workshop. All you need is a willingness to experiment and explore!
