Hello, my name is Kristen and I am one of the art therapists here at KidsXpress. I love creating and exploring! While volunteering at an organisation for women and children in Mexico, I discovered how art can not only support creative expression and healing, but also build meaningful connection between two people when words are not available.
After completing my Masters in Art Therapy at the University of Western Sydney, I worked for many years as an art therapist at a long term residential rehabilitation unit for women and children. During this time I also received training in the Circle of Security Parenting Program. I cherish the many opportunities of ‘being-with’ children as we create, explore and navigate their world together. Collaborating with my team to discover the endless possibilities for supporting children through the creative therapies is a dream come true.
