Erica Eugenio MSW, RSW
I am there to listen to your story, not leading, just walking alongside you as you travel down a road that will become easier the further you go, making sense of what is happening to you and in your life.
My specializations are grief work, families, children and adolescents.
Life in many ways is one big journey made up of lots of smaller ones, and I want to empower you to make significant changes that will ensure no single part of your life controls and limits what you can feel and achieve.
You will be empowered to cope with challenges, make changes in your life and most importantly, recognize emotions are meant to be felt and where they are coming from, which will help you make sense of them and start enjoying life.
Everyone has a story to tell and being brave enough to let me into your life and share yours with me is the biggest and most important step.
Melanie Brakel DTATI (Cand.), RP (Qualifying)
Perhaps you’ve heard about art therapy before, or maybe you’re wondering, “what exactly is art therapy?” Art therapy uses a combination of psychotherapy and the creative process to help facilitate personal insight and understanding. Using the creative arts can be incredibly helpful when we just don’t have the words to express life’s circumstances. Art therapy is an accessible and helpful option for many individuals, regardless of age and art-making experience. You do not have to be “good” at art in order to experience the benefits of engaging in the creative process.
My goal is to help facilitate the creative process and work alongside you as I support your journey. I aim to create a supportive space where you can safely explore and work towards your wellness goals. I use a client-centred, strengths-based approach to therapy and often incorporate mindfulness with art making practices. As we are each a truly unique individual, we will work together to create a space and process that works best for you. I absolutely believe in the therapeutic benefits of art therapy and would be honoured to work alongside you on your journey if you decide to choose art therapy!
In addition to art therapy, I also offer counselling services where I use a similar approach to our work together, just without the markers or paint!
