Heather Prost – Practitioner Profile

Heather is hosting an Expressive Art event with us on Monday, February 22nd called ‘Where is My Spark’. Stay tuned for more events and workshops with our wonderful host.

Heather Prost (they/them) is a white, nonbinary, queer, multi-media visual artist, end of life doula, and certified expressive arts therapist that lives on the unceded lands of the Kwantlen, Katzie, and Semiahmoo nations. Alongside SFU’s SVSPO educator Paola Quiros, Heather co-created the group ARThrive: a space for survivors of sexualized violence to explore art together. Creating that space prompted Heather to pursue expressive arts therapy. They graduated first class with distinction from Simon Fraser University with a BA in Gender, Sexuality, and Women’s Studies and Dialogue in Communications, obtained their post-baccalaureate certificate in Expressive Arts Therapy from Langara College, and completed the End of Life Doula certification from Douglas College. 

In addition to their work with arts-based leadership development with children and youth, they operate Fioritura Expressive Arts Therapy. Heather has recently been focusing on reclaiming ritual and learning about what it means to be a Strega by accessing their Italian roots. They are space-holder in their bi-weekly suicide survivors grief group and are also  working towards obtaining volunteer hours to register with the End of Life Doula Association of Canada

They enjoy writing, playing with clay, mixed media art, vampires and the Twilight saga, resting, being queer, attending Death Cafes, baking bread, and being an auntie to baby Jack.
