My name is Taylor Bourassa (she/her) and my private practice – Wellness Grove Therapy, was created with a vision of integrating art, nature and typical talk therapies as a way to provide you with a more holistic approach. There are moments in life when words fall short of what we are feeling, or are unable to reach the depths of our understanding and expression. I find it is helpful in these moments, to call on the expressive arts and nature to access the nuance in feeling and expression. Through art-creation and exploring your experiencing through a nature-based lens, you may come to deeper insights that you can hold and reflect on.
I believe in the inherent strength and individuality in each person, and I believe that therapy should be a space all your own where you can find or re-discover, strengthen, and honour your voice. This is why I work from a person-centered and humanistic framework. Inside of this framework I introduce different modalities that may help you get at the core of why you are coming to therapy. These include: existentialist, psychodynamic, mindfulness and self-compassion based and depth/analytical. Ultimately, I listen to the natural flow of therapy and your needs in the moment, inviting a collaborative relationship to ensure you are on the most helpful path.
I work with children, youth & adults, who are experiencing depression, anxiety, self-esteem or body image issues; and those who are seeking a deeper understanding of life’s big questions and their own spirituality. Shadow-work, dream-work, symbolism and meaning all have the potential to show up and become a significant part of this process.
I also offer group art therapy and workshops, which can explore: self-image and self-esteem; self-affirmation; stress reduction and management and dream-work.
