LEIGH BATES

LICENSED PROFESSIONAL COUNSELOR, ART THERAPIST, AND PLAY THERAPIST

I am a Licensed Professional Art Therapist and Licensed Professional Counselor who loves using Art Therapy and Play Therapy interventions as a safe and fun way to connect with children and adolescents

 

With 5+ years of experience, I am confident that I can work with you or your family to create a happier, more cohesive home and play environment for your child. 

I would describe my therapeutic style as approachable, relaxed, and playful. When working with kids, I especially want to make my office as warm and inviting as my personality is.  

 

I started my career in inpatient hospital settings where I developed a strong passion for helping kids, teens, and families. I have spent the last several years honing my skills in play therapy and filial therapy. 

 

Now, as a Certified Positive Discipline Parent Educator, I also enjoy working with parents to broaden their parenting toolkits.
