Therapeutic Photography

Michelle Behr is a formally trained therapeutic photographer following the guidelines of Judy Weiser’s Phototherapy Techniques, practicing with the expertise of a Master’s Degree in Counselling Psychology. Therapeutic photography is client driven exploration where you are guided by a loving lens to explore yourself deeper through photo art therapy.

Session fees include a counselling session, photoshoot, and photos edited to the clients precise vision. Michelle intends to pursue a PhD in this topic area and continue to extend services to individuals and groups. Her professional experience includes therapeutic photography for body image, Men’s Voices, and photo art therapy for children in community settings.

Michelle offers therapeutic photography services to the community through photo sessions, mental health awareness, and community fundraising. Contact us today for more information on this unique offering.

With Men’s Voices, we make space to honour the strength and also the vulnerability of our men in each of their unique journeys.

The Men’s Voices book is a soul-driven photographic exploration of Men’s Voices, and the lived experience of  persevering in the face of adversity. For more on the origins of this project, and to purchase your copy of the book, head to the CMHA official page. We hope that like us, you too will be inspired to take action and support Men’s Voices in your community.

Telus Vancouver produced this series into a documentary “Into the Light” which you can watch here on our Facebook page.
