We begin by acknowledging that, here in Nova Scotia, we are in Mi’kma’ki, the ancestral and unceded territory of the Mi’kmaq People. We are all treaty people.
The Wild Art Therapy Collective is a constellation of professionals providing support for people to connect with themselves, each other and the Wild world.
For our upcoming "ReWild Your Child" summer day camp, we have the privilege of collaborating with Shelby and Kenzie. They are aligned with our vision of the natural world as more than just a playground, but as a doorway to meaningful relationship. We hope your child will have the opportunity to learn, play and grow with them!

Surf Therapist & Camp co-LEader
Hello! I am one of the camp leaders for the "ReWild Your Child" summer camp and am a Registered Counselling Therapist - Candidate. With a master’s degree in counselling psychology and a specialization in working with kids, teens, and first responders, I also have a private practice as a "Surf Therapist".
In my free time I like to surf, read in the hammock, or do anything outdoors! I have a passion for working with young people and have witnessed how important it is to incorporate outdoor activities together!
In my time working with youth, I have coached basketball programs and worked in group homes with kids in care. In addition to years of experience, I have also earned certifications in Mental Health First Aid, First Aid and CPR Level C, Nonviolent Crisis Intervention, and Fire Safety.
I cannot wait to spend some time outdoors with you!
Outdoor guide & camp co-leader
Hello! I am one of the leaders for the "ReWild Your Child" summer camp. I have been working in and around the outdoors for over a decade and have experiences all over the world!
I believe that the best way to connect to yourself is by spending time in nature. With 15 seasons of experience working at summer camps, over 500km of ocean canoe tripping under my belt, I know that even a rainy day has something amazing to offer!
I have held my Wilderness First Aid certification since 2012 and have just upgraded to the Advanced level in 2021. I also hold certifications in Psychological First Aid, Tandem Canoe, Personal Training, and Non Violent Crisis Intervention.
My favorite ways to explore the world are through paddling, camping, or rock climbing. I look forward to seeing you at the
