Andrea completed her B.A. (Hons.) in Psychology and Visual Art from The University of Western Ontario and M.Ed. in Developmental Psychology and Education at The University of Toronto. 2 years ago she moved to the West Coast with her puppy to complete a Certificate in Art Therapy with additional courses focusing on Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, Solution-Focused Therapy, Strengths-Based Therapy, Narrative Therapy and Play Therapy. While those frameworks guide her, she focuses on creating a space for students to overcome challenges and reach their full potential. In her free time you can find her on FaceTime with her family, expanding her learning at a coffee shop nearby, or being active outside with her puppy.
