Anna Maliatski is an artist, designer, architect, double immigrant and a certified Expressive Arts Therapist. She brings her multicultural experience to the individual sessions and group workshops. Anna believes in the power of the body-mind connection as a gateway to creativity. She is trained in mindfulness and incorporates it into her work with clients. Anna is a trauma-informed, human-centred therapist; she believes that Cognitive Behavioural Therapy and other talk-based therapies are not for everyone; Expressive Arts Therapy goes beyond words. It allows to connect with the unconscious, addressing and healing traumatic experiences that cannot be put into words. Depression, anxiety, PTSD, midlife crisis, aging, grief, loss and chronic pain are among the issues that could be addressed in Expressive Arts Therapy.

Anna offers a 20-minute free online consultation; don't hesitate to contact her to schedule it at your convenience.

She has extensive experience working with women, the elderly, immigrants, and children. She loves facilitating custom Expressive Arts workshops. She is involved with the Jewish Federation of Greater Vancouver and several Care Homes. She was also a summer camp facilitator at Place des Arts, a Moving Forward family services volunteer, and did her practicum at Kitsilano Neighbourhood House. She also worked with women immigrants from UBC and Ukrainian refugees.

Anna speaks Russian and Hebrew fluently. She is passionate in creating custom-tailored ExA workshops, that combine movement, visual art, creative writing to foster creativity and human connection. Please contact her to discuss your next event!
