Dorothy Mackintosh

Founder & Art Therapist

I am a professional art therapist, mixed media artist, and mother of three grown children. I have lived internationally and bring a diverse cultural perspective. I embrace the ideals of empowerment, empathy and compassion within my practice.

I have a background in nursing, education in social science, and 30 years of experience as a volunteer working with children, adolescents and adults. This, coupled with my personal experience of cancer has given me a strong foundation in therapeutic healing.
