Sarah West 

Environmental Art Therapist

Sarah West is an environmental arts therapist, trained at the Kutenai Art Therapy Institute.  Through her therapeutic arts and consulting practice, Earthen Vision, Sarah works alongside individuals and organizations to engage with the land, creativity and story to imagine possibilities, nurture wellbeing and facilitate connections.  As an avid mythology and folklore enthusiast, she also facilitates how working with story may breathe wonder, transformation, and meaning into our way of being.


With 10 years experience leading consultations and policy on environmental issues working with governments and Indigenous communities, Sarah has always grounded her work with a lifelong practice of connecting deeply with the land.  She also holds a Masters in public administration and an undergraduate degree in cultural anthropology and peace studies.
