MAGE, LMHC

Under the supervision of Magnolia
ART THERAPIST
SHAMANIC REIKI MASTER

Mage is a non-binary multi-media artist pursuing their masters in clinical mental health counseling with art therapy. They have experiencing facilitating art therapy groups for adolescents and for adults, including one focusing on members experiencing chronic illness.

 

Mage has experience with a wide variety of artistic media and works from an existential person-centered mindset that is influenced by somatic and polyvagal theories. Mage's perspective centers trauma-informed practice and aims to address the artifacts of trauma in the present moment. Mage is an empathetic, compassionate, and curious listener. They hold queer-affirming space to explore for their clients and see social justice work as integral to being a therapist inside and outside of session.

 

Finding a place of somatic safety is essential to do any kind of therapeutic work, and, for some, therapeutic art-making can be a bottom-up, non-verbal approach that allows for that safety to be more readily accessible. No previous experience with art or any self or external perception of "talent" is necessary to engage with art therapy. Being open to the healing power of art and creative processes is a good place to start.

LEIGH, LCSW

CLINICAL SUPERVISOR

THERAPIST

SHAMANIC REIKI MASTER
SOUND HEALER

Leigh is a Licensed Clinical Social Worker, Shamanic Reiki Master Practitioner and Sound Healer Level II in the state of New Mexico. She has skills working with children/adolescents and adults using holistic and psychotherapy interventions to assist clients in finding healing, resolutions and a path to a better future. Leigh will pull from her education, life and work experiences to inform an individual plan to help you achieve your life's purpose. 

 

Leigh pulls from a cognitive behavioral perspective (CBT) in that she believes we must be willing to be curious and question why we react the way we do and change what no longer is serving your needs to behaviors and thoughts that do. She may use dialectical behavior therapy (DBT) skills to support clients in adjusting their mindset. She will build off your strengths and resiliencies you have already developed and give you more to pull from.
 

 Leigh has a passion for working with children and she has found working with adults that they have wounded children that are forgotten in the past, but through inner child work we can change that. Leigh can use holistic interventions like reiki, crystal work, and sound healing to support client energy movement. It's only through challenges that we grow and become a better version of ourselves for the better. Leigh believes through meaningful work and a genuine intention any one can achieve what they put their minds to. 

 

Leigh is a genuine, empathetic, humorous and competent clinician with experience working with clients from different genders, races, cultures, and socioeconomic backgrounds in New Mexico.
