About Us


Our Story

F-STOP To Success has been a photographic journey in the making. Despite having grown up in an artistic family, art was not a comfortable means of expression for me. Having a grandfather who painted with the Group of Seven definitely impacted my appreciation for art, however not my interest in making it. That was until my 10th birthday when my father gifted me my first camera. And from that day forward I was all things photography. Taking pictures quickly became my focus, my means of expression, and go to when times were tough. Being able to visually document my experiences and release my emotions on film was a godsend. The self-discovery and personal awareness that manifested through the act of taking pictures was invaluable. In fact, it is the reason why I am successful today. As a PhotoTherapy Specialist, Registered Art Therapist, and Professional Photographer I am now able to offer others the opportunity to benefit from photography and photographs just as I did. With courses in PhotoTherapy and Therapeutic Photography, students and practicing mental health professionals can now learn, grow, and blossom both personally and professionally.

“This course has made me think about things I’ve never thought about before. It’s totally changing the way I look at photographs and films. Now I can’t help but wonder what’s in them that I can benefit from or more importantly that my clients can”.
In working through the course, I discovered personal difficulties relating to photography, and realized I must resolve this before offering the method safely to clients. During weekly coaching calls with Kelly, she and the other class members have compassionately helped me learn to work with difficult emotions that arise when looking at family photographs. This learning is vital, some of my clients may also have this experience and I am glad to be learning how to gently work with these images. Thank you Kelly for sharing your skills and, mostly, for your compassionate presence. You have taught me a method to work with my family photos that will continue to evolve with time.
“I can’t say enough good about this course. From its content to the weekly group coaching calls, I feel like Kelly had my back through the entire course. I learned about PhotoTherapy in a way I never have. I’ve taken other PhotoTherapy courses before, but Kelly’s was the only one that challenged me to grow as a person and as a mental health professional. Taking this course and implementing PhotoTherapy into my practice was the best thing I ever did for myself and my clients”!
