Registered Provisional Psychologist, MC, BA

While I specialize in trauma, I ultimately am person-centred and sex positive. This means I am happy to work with you and any concern you might have. Whether that is related to sex work or not. I will look at you and work with you as a whole, rather than focusing on one part of you.

Online Art Therapy, DKATI

I am a professional Clinical Art Therapist, mixed media artist, and mother of three grown children. I bring the ideals of empowerment, empathy and compassion into all of my work. I work within a feminist framework, believing wholeheartedly that we are all valuable members of our community and should be treated with respect and non-judgement. The focus of my art therapy practice is positive art therapy which builds on the principles of positive psychology. I consider myself to be an ally of those in the sex work profession having conducted art therapy with women who have been sex workers. Positive art therapy has made it easier to develop a sense of self through the exploration of personal strengths thereby empowering women to work through deep rooted life challenges.

Hey, I’m Chloe! I practice massage therapy and craniosacral therapy from my home in downtown Edmonton. I have a bit of a unique approach to how I treat the body. I believe when you are on the table, YOU are in charge. I believe that you are the one actually doing the work, and that I am just facilitating your dedication, and holding space for you. I believe that my clients show up because they have agency, motivation and are willing to do what their body needs in order to feel better. I have been helping others in this way for almost 14 years, with a lot of peripheral trainings like YTT, energetic/emotional release, myofascial cupping and much more. Please email for rates.
