Hi!  I'm glad you're here.

My name is Maiya, and I'm and arts based therapist living and working on the unceded ancestral lands of the Syilx Okanagan peoples.  


I use an arts based approach to psychotherapy, grounded in somatic practice.

I support clients with:


Connection to and exploration of strengths and resources

 * Developing + expanding creative aliveness and possibility

* Deepening relational experience,  with self and others

* Finding new ways of relating to, processing, and experiencing

challenges and difficulties, such as: depression, anxiety,​ grief,

burn-out, overwhelm and (personal and collective) trauma


There is absolutely no previous experience or skill with the arts needed. 





                                                                              My office in the heart of downtown Penticton

Private sessions are a solid container where we can find nourishment through the processes and results of creative exploration and therapeutic inquiry. 


Here, we step into a different way of being in our lives. 

We listen in new ways, we learn to hold curiosity for what is and for what might be. 

We get messy, we slow down, and we explore. 

  About Expressive Arts Therapy: 

Expressive Arts Therapists offer sessions that integrate creative expression

(for example; visual arts, creative writing, drama, creative ritual, 

 dance/ movement) with relational and somatic therapeutic approaches 

as containers for personal inquiry, discovery, healing and growth.


My goal is that sessions here can offer balance and grounding,

fullness and well as a deepening into the psyche/soul.

 I offer a free 15 minute consultation in person, over the phone, or online,

depending on your personal preference.
