GET TO KNOW your therapist
Stephanie Liebl, LPC, ATR-P
Hello! My name is Stephanie Liebl.
I am a clinical counselor and art therapist. My background has primarily been working with older children, adolescents, and young adults in inpatient hospital settings. I have a strong interest in helping individuals struggling with identity issues and self-esteem issues. I also have a multitude of experience with depression, anxiety, trauma, and self-harming behaviour.
HOW I HELP
As a clinician, it is my goal to create a space safe for my clients.
My hope is that my clients feel like they can bring difficult topics into session. From an artist perspective, I also hope I can create a space safe to explore through artistic medium and know there is no judgement. Not to mention, sometimes one needs a safe space to get a little messy and “let loose.” I’m not afraid to throw some paint with clients if there is a need.
Being an art therapist means not only can I support my clients using more traditional talk therapy, but also through the use of art making. Sometimes it can be difficult to find the words to express exactly how we are feeling and creating art can be an excellent step into discovering more about one’s self. Not to mention, art can be a great coping mechanism when those uncomfortable feelings bubble up to the surface.
MORE ABOUT ME
When I’m not being a weird art lady, I have a huge love for animals- especially cats. Currently, I have 3 rescue cats, who are beautiful and amazing and sometimes incredibly annoying. I’m also a bit of a nerd and love going to comic and/or anime conventions (in full cosplay, of course.)
