Hello! My name is Ellora and I am a trauma-informed drama therapist and mental health practitioner. My practice is rooted in a client-centred, psychodynamic, and holistic approach. I am trained to help work through challenges that involve anxiety, depression, loneliness, grief, addiction, self-esteem, cultural confusion, racism, meaning and purpose, and identity.

As a Therapist, I prioritize your story. I am trained in creative verbal and non-verbal tools that can help create a space that meets your needs for expression and exploration. While words can be very useful during therapy, they are sometimes not enough.
Often we feel like a sound, movement, story, song or metaphor can help us express ourselves better -- this is where Drama Therapy comes in. Drama Therapy has the advantage of using different modalities and senses so that we can understand and access what you are going through in different ways. This can help afford perspective, insight and direction. Together, we can help you develop a healthier relationship with yourself and those around you.
There is profound power in seeking therapy for yourself; healing and transformation start when you make the choice to search for it. Together we can work through your challenges and work towards goals that help you live a healthier and more fulfilling life.
