 Meet Janine M. Ray :)

Janine is an Art Therapist and a Registered Clinical Counsellor, however her main credentials are from living with depression and anxiety for over 10 years.

Janine’s difficulties began in late adolescence and remained with her until her mid-twenties, affecting her relationships, school, career, and life generally. Every day was painful to get through.  After working on herself and coming through the struggle, Janine found greater awareness, understanding, presence, and a desire to help others.

To assist in her own struggle, Janine found certain counseling modalities useful for easing suffering and that allowed for increased levels of joy and contentment: Mindfulness, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, and Existential Therapy. These approaches work for many of her clients, and committed individuals can expect to feel relief within the first few sessions.  Janine assumes a person-centered approach, and meets individuals exactly where they are.

As a practicing artist, Janine understands the profound healing potential and positive change that can result from accessing creativity and artistic sensibility. Art and creation provides us tools we can use to work through life’s challenges, issues, emotions and struggles...and often this process is playful! Certainly, art making within the therapeutic relationship can provide us with a means of healthy expression and allow us to explore, feel, and grow.

Janine facilitates groups and conducts private art therapy sessions for youth, and adults, including elderly populations. In groups, organized by age and/or ability, participants benefit from the engagement of others and their experiences.  In one-on-one sessions, Janine offers a focused, yet gentle, approach where a combination of art making and discussion will be used to meet the specific needs of the client. Janine welcomes new clients and uses online modalities (as well as in person) to serve individuals no matter where they are- physically, emotionally, and spiritually.
