I understand what it is like to feel that you have lost yourself. As a survivor of postpartum anxiety and depression, childhood trauma and persistent people-pleasing, I have learned how to reconnect with my inner wisdom and become the artist of my own life. Hi, I’m Leanne (she/her). I am a Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC) in the state of Colorado and Registered Art Therapist (ATR). I have over a decade of experience supporting highly-sensitive, empathetic individuals in healing from traumatic experiences, deepening self-awareness, and living a life of more joy and peace. Oftentimes, trauma cannot be healed through words alone. I am passionate about offering holistic healing opportunities that allow you to connect with your mind, body, and spirit so that you can finally heal from old wounds and step into your power.
Bachelor of Arts in Elementary Education and Art (2010)

I believe that all humans are born creators; thus, you do not need to be ‘good’ at art to benefit from art therapy. A willingness to engage in art-making enables us to explore our inner landscape, uncover parts of ourselves that are beyond words, and create meaning from our experiences. Art therapy, combined with other therapeutic approaches, allows you to connect with your own wisdom and pave new pathways to create lasting change. Within a safe, grounded, and compassionate therapeutic relationship, my hope is to collaborate with you to navigate change and create the life you desire. I am passionate about offering holistic healing opportunities that allow you to connect with your mind, body, and spirit so that you can finally heal from old wounds and step into your power. I believe in providing you with mindfulness and awareness tools to better understand your emotions and how they show up in your body. With increased self-awareness, often comes improved responses to your emotions, a natural boost in self-confidence, and a greater connection with yourself.
Leanne is a great therapist whom I would highly recommend. I completed prenatal art therapy and she was empathetic and understanding. The sessions helped me gain confidence in my upcoming birth and allowed a space to process fears and emotions.
