Professional statement

Emily Natale is an Expressive Art Therapist and Licensed Mental Health Counselor based in Providence, Rhode Island. She has worked with culturally and diagnostically diverse children and adults, many of whom have struggled with the impacts of trauma, depression and anxiety. Her intensive clinical foundation has shaped her into a trauma-sensitive and culturally-mindful generalist. Currently, she focuses her practice on supporting individuals who struggle with chronic pain, in particular migraines, life transitions and general stress/burnout.

Emily's approach to treatment is holistic. She takes into consideration multiple domains of wellness which may be impacting an individual. She also continues to develop her toolbox of modalities, methods and techniques to offer her valued clients. Emily enjoys offering unconventional methods of psychotherapy which may include; art, movement, mindfulness and visualization meditations. Her toolbox is a blend of Western evidence-based treatment, eastern modalities, and alternative approaches.

Emily was professionally trained at Lesley University in Cambridge, MA for both undergraduate and graduate degrees in Mental Health Counseling and Expressive Art Therapies. Her continued education involves inflammation, the gut and its impact on the brain, yoga in a mental health practice, behavioral neuroscience, meditation and visualization for peak performance and everyday living, positive psychology, immigrant experiences, and art in trauma based work.

Emily is available for remote and in-person sessions in both Massachusetts and Rhode Island. She offers individual and group work.


Message to clients

My hope for you is that you are able to safely find new ways to explore, learn and heal through creative and holistic methodologies. I hold a space of safety and compassion with the utmost respect to you. I honor your journey and your own inner wisdom. And I see strength in vulnerability.

Therapy isn't always painful. At times there is discomfort, because you may be experiencing challenging and unpleasant emotions, but there is also laughter, strength and relief. I find sometimes people need a space to "breathe", "decompress," "find quiet", or learn how to spend time with themselves in ways that are rooted in wellness and promote their highest good.

Lastly, every therapist is different. This makes finding the "right fit" tricky. I get that. I encourage you to communicate what works and what doesn't. This allows me to better serve you and offers you an opportunity to take control over your own health and wellness. (If finding another therapist is needed, I can help there too.) I am open to challenges and welcome questions.
