Samantha Dobbin is an art therapist who has graduated from Concordia University in May 2021. Through her internships in the program she has gained experience working with adults, and adolescents.  She's currently employed as an art therapist within the CIUSSS de la Montérégie-Centre, where she works with families and teens; at St-Lambert International High School; as well as with the Groupe des Aidants du Sud-Ouest, where she facilitates art therapy groups for caregivers. Her previous experiences include early childhood education, mental health, socio-professional reintegration as well as addiction recovery. She uses mostly an integrated approach to art therapy which includes notions from the psychodynamic and humanistic models, as well as the 3rd wave Cognitive Behavioural therapy models (CFT (Commpassion focused therapy), DBT). As her research thesis, Samantha proposed a Spiritually Focused Art Therapy Program for adults in Addiction Recovery. She carries a passion for helping people reach better mental and spiritual health as well as for the accessibility of such services for all.
