Annie Hussain

I hold a Master's degree in Creative Arts Therapies from Concordia University and have over 10 years of experience working with a variety of populations: children, teens, adults with developmental disabilities, domestic violence survivors, adults with addictions and seniors. More recently, I have taken a special interest in working with both parents and young children in the postpartum period of parenthood, focusing on topics such as attachment, postpartum mood issues, and pregnancy and infant loss. I am currently working in private practice in Calgary, AB at the Blackbird Healing Arts Collective where I am accepting new clients. Since I intimately understand the unique logistical challenges that come with caring for little humans while trying to take care of yourself, I am happy to welcome (and cater to) your young child within the therapy space.


It is a true honor and privilege to walk with my clients as they embark upon their journeys of self-reflection, growth and healing. Holding a sacred, safe space for my clients to discover their own inner strengths, tap into their intuitive guidance and find their voice through art is what keeps me excited about the work that I do.
