Leah Nightingale, MS, LPC-IT, ATR-IT
Areas of Focus: Adolescents and Adults
Artmaking can offer people the opportunity to express emotions without having to use their words. Often times words fail us and the creative process of making art offers an outlet for appropriate reflection and expression of emotions or experiences. I teach clients skills of self-regulation, mindfulness, positive coping skills, and feeling identification through the use of artistic media.
I have experience working with adolescents and adults coping with anxiety, depression, and other mood disorders. With the use of a humanistic and client-centered approach, I assist clients to uncover their emotions and give them resources on how to express themselves in a safe and healthy way. I strive to meet clients where they are at and help build a safe space for each client to grow toward the life they want to live. Utilizing artmaking can help guide the therapeutic process based on the needs of each client.
