The intention for my art therapy practice is to hold space for clients to experience their emotions, creatively express them and cultivate new opportunities for navigating life. My name is Leah Guzman and I’m an art therapy registered board certified art therapist (ATR-BC). My experience working with clients ranges from providing services to at-risk youth in crisis shelters, juvenile jails, and public schools. I also have experience working with adults in homeless shelters, psychiatric hospitals, supporting women in my private practice in person and online. Art has been an outlet for me during turbulent times and it’s my first defense in dealing with life challenges. Art is also a part of my daily regimen of keeping my life in balance. I practice what I preach. My mission is to support others to find an outlet to connect, body, mind and soul through creativity. It’s incredibly satisfying to assist a person in realizing their true potential.
My clinical experience has been cognitive-behavioral approach to treat depression, anxiety and post traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). Art therapy is a way for clients to visually see what’s going on in their mind, learn new ways to change their thinking patterns, which leads to creating a new world for them to experience.
