Studio Philosophy - Cara Tompkins Rosa - Certified Art Therapist

The Philosophy

At Creative Wellness Art Therapy, we believe that each person has the capacity to become their authentic self and to find meaning through creative expression. We approach each person’s unique reality with curiosity and respect. We provide a judgment-free, welcoming environment to uncover, explore, process, and understand your thoughts and feelings. We see the therapeutic relationship as a shared journey built on trust and acceptance, designed to support and guide you to create your path to well-being. Creative Wellness Art Therapy is an inclusive space; we invite all ages, cultures, identities, sizes, and abilities to embrace the creative journey with us!

The Location

The studio office is located in Griffintown’s Montreal Art Centre, which houses an extensive art library and permanent collection, multiple rotating galleries, and a cozy café, along with a community of local artists. I chose to situate the office in a private setting within this vibrant space because I believe a creative community atmosphere provides tangible and imperceptible inspiration and support that strengthens the therapeutic process.

*Please note, the studio office is located on the third floor, which is currently accessible only by stairs. Online individual or group sessions, and group sessions at your location, are available for your convenience.

The Key

I chose the key to represent Creative Wellness Art Therapy because of my belief that we each hold the keys to our well-being, and that creativity is one of those keys. To me, antique keys represent mystery and excitement; that is also how I view the journey of self-discovery. I am honoured to accompany you as we find out what doors your keys will open!
