Welcome to Art Therapy Guelph

Offering in-person and online art therapy from the comfort of your own home

When clients connect with me, as you have, it is after reflecting on their life. You may notice you lost the sense of who you really are. You feel burnt out and want to reign in stress, negative thoughts and emotions. You are ready to heal grief and trauma and are fed up with feeling pessimistic and stressed. Many of my clients are diagnosed with anxiety, generalized anxiety disorder, depression or PTSD. However, I believe people are more than their labels and you have a unique personality, nature, and very unique lived experiences.

You deserve to lighten up what weighs you down. Like my clients, you may want to process life's challenges like illness, divorce, grief and loss, abuse, nightmares, and ageing. It is hard wading through things on your own. If you embrace a creative approach to improving mental and emotional wellbeing, together we can process the darkness of the past and paint a better future. 

Hello, I'm Heather Caruso, of Art Therapy Guelph, an Artist, Healer, Art Therapist and Registered Psychotherapist (Qualifying). I offer a comforting and grounding space to work through and explore emotions, challenges and lived experiences. I use a combination of art therapy and psychotherapy. You and I will collaborate to find positive coping tools and your voice when things conflict with your goals and values. I will honour your intuition and creativity. I will help you cultivate self-compassion. My highest goal is that you feel that you are working towards living an authentic and wholehearted life.
