Katie is an art therapist who conducts both one-on-one and group art therapy. Katie specializes in working with children and youth living with anxiety disorders on the autism spectrum, difficulties with self-esteem, and behaviour problems. She also works with adults that have physical, cognitive or developmental disabilities.

Accessibility was a priority when Stephanie and Katie were choosing the location for the Center. And you can tell that they put a lot of effort and care into designing the space. They make sure every room is accessible for any individual without any barrier, including making the doors wider to accommodate wheelchairs.

Since the Center opened in November 2019, Stephanie and Katie have been navigating the downtimes due to COVID-19 by trying new online and phone therapy methods. Being business owners has been a fantastic experience for Stephanie and Katie thus far. “It’s so nice to see that others are witnessing the support that we’re providing, that they’re choosing to come here. They support us.” It’s also humbling for them when clients disclose progress.
