Registered Art Therapist, Licensed Mental Health Counselor

Emily Natale believes everyone is able to access their own innate healing through creative methods. She offers a sacred space and time -as well as loving-support- for adults and children to do their healing work. She has a humanistic-relational foundation, but will pull from a variety of methods & models (evidenced based methods, ancient wisdom/healing practices, yoga & body oriented, mindfulness & meditation, research, expressive methods) to help facilitate your process. Not sure what that all means? Totally okay. Essentially, the relationship is a priority and she have a diverse toolbox to help guide our work together. 


Emily formally studied expressive art therapy and mental health counseling for her undergraduate & graduate degrees. Both were obtained at Lesley University in Cambridge, MA. Much of her art training was done at Art Institute of Boston & Lorezno di Medici in Florence, Italy. 


She's also spent time working in project management, entrepreneurship/innovation, hospitality & research. She value learning & continue to develop new techniques, methods, & enjoy staying connected to research. Emily enjoys spending her time dancing, gardening, reading, playing games, swimming and yoga, being in the forest or at the sea, watching movies, sharing laughs with loved ones, and of course- creating!
