Art Therapist

Nicole Hawthorne

Nicole is a Marriage and Family Therapist and Art Therapist who has been working with youth and families in school and the community since 2012. Nicole’s passion for Art Therapy evolved from combining her interests in fashion design and studio art with her experience working with at-risk children and adolescents. In weekly Art Therapy groups at EBC, she works to increase insight and self-esteem, and promote growth and healing. She offers a warm and safe environment and trusting relationships where her clients can use art to grow, cope, and create change. In her free time, Nicole volunteers as a peer-review editor for the Canadian Art Therapy Association quarterly journal, and supervises Art Therapy interns.
