The Team


Cognitive Instructor and Art Therapist

Lynnea has joined our team as Cognitive Instructor to support the Watson Centre program and facilitate our newest study with older adults experiencing cognitive decline.

Lynnea values the resilient capacity and never-ending potential of each individual. She is passionately curious about the brain, neuroplasticity, trauma, and the conditions that allow each unique individual to heal and grow. Having worked with folks along every stage of the life span in various social service roles for over 12 years, she is dedicated to supporting others to live a connected, expressive, creative, and meaningful life. 

Lynnea is also a Registered Art Therapist with a keen interest in creativity, embodiment, mindfulness and visualization. Having experienced a brain injury herself, Lynnea brings lived experience, compassion, encouragement and care to folks who are navigating the waves of change following a brain injury.
