Colour Wheel Art Therapy
Courtenay Art Therapy
Art therapy combines counselling with various art materials and directives in order to help each person achieve their therapeutic goals. It can assist with anxiety, depression, trauma, grief, emotional regulation, and life changes. Art therapy is suitable for all ages and abilities.My approach is person-centred and humanistic. I assess each client where they are at and adjust my approach as needed. I incorporate psychotherapy, CBT, ABA, art therapy, and play therapy as needed in order to help each person reach their therapeutic goals.
Welcome to Colour Wheel Art Therapy! My name is Kathryn Schmidt and I am an art therapist and certified counsellor. I was born in Burnaby, BC and obtained my BFA from Simon Fraser University (2009). I lived and studied in Montreal for 5 years where I got my MA in Art Therapy (2016). Soon after graduation I moved to Vancouver Island in order to be closer to my family and to nature. In my spare time I love hiking, spending time with my parrot, and making art.
