My name is Sarah Teitel, and I’m an art therapist and facilitator in Toronto. I see clients individually and in groups. I use a mix of talking and the arts to help clients process their experiences of the world and reflect on the challenges they face. I believe the way we operate as makers of art runs parallel to the way we operate in other areas of our lives, and that there’s important learning to be had in noticing those patterns of operation.
My background as a multi-disciplinary artist forms the basis of my therapeutic practice. I look and listen for the subtle details. My workspace has been carefully designed, and is stocked with artist-grade materials and instruments. I respect the ingenuity, individuality, struggle and humour of each and every person I work with. I value all my clients as people and as artists.
