"be softer with you. 
you are a

breathing thing. 
a memory to someone. 
a home to a life."

My name is Katrina Grabner (she/her)


Art Therapist - Counsellor - Group Facilitator

As someone on their own journey of healing and growth, I honour your courage and the path that has brought you here.


I practice from a collaborative, attachment based, trauma aware, somatically informed, arts centred, anti-oppressive framework.




“The art process offers one of the few ways we human beings have found to utilize and to synthesize all or ourselves-

body, mind and spirit.”

Judith Rubin,

Art Therapist, Author

Confident Woman

Katrina did an amazing workshop about loss and art expression.  The participants expressed their gratefulness to Katrina's sense of compassion, kindness and the gentleness that she showed during the exercises.

The session about our safe spaces, and doing the visualization excercise beforehand was really moving.

Senior Trans Person

Katrina, the most helpful thing I remember about this group is your warmth, positive attitude, calmness and welcoming presence. You graciously accepted people's comments, their process and anything that they added to the mix.
