Qualicare Speaker - LianaS
Liana Sikharulidze

Liana’s has been working in the healthcare industry for 20 years. Her life took a profound turn when her grandparents were diagnosed with dementia, leading her to become a full-time caregiver while managing her business. Amidst the chaos, she learned to prioritized self-care, realizing its crucial role in her ability to provide moment-with-purpose care. Through resilience, and challenges, she found balance and developed ways for maintaining her mental, spiritual and physical health. Now, she shares her journey to empower caregivers, emphasizing the importance of self-care in providing compassionate care and fostering well-being for both caregivers and their loved ones.

I work with a lot of clients who have brain injuries and Post-Concussive Symptoms, chronic illness, neurodivergence (Autism), relationships (attachment/couples), trauma, self growth/development, ADHD symptoms, interpersonal difficulties, PTSD, anxiety, depression, and stress-relief. In my 10+ years in mental health, I have helped clients manage the above-mentioned symptoms, as well helped with intergenerational trauma, self-harm, and suicidal ideation, etc. 

I have worked with BIST over the years in co-curating their TBI Expressive Arts Shows as well as by providing Art Therapy Workshops for members in order to help them manage anxieties, stressors, and how they perceive their life with a brain injury. I have worked with BIAPH as a peer mentor in the past where I completed the Peer Mentorship training and have provided emotional support for individuals who were diagnosed with brain injuries.

I have provided art therapy services at Bayshore Healthcare (formerly NRIO) where I also completed my TATI Art Therapy Major Project/Thesis which looked at how we can change the perception of individuals with Brain Injuries and their capabilities and how Mindfulness-Based Art Therapy can help individuals with brain injuries.
