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.
