About Natasha Young

Board Certified Art Therapist,
Licensed Professional Counselor

Who I am

Hi, I’m Natasha, I am a person with an affinity towards helping others. I have over 12 years of experience helping people in various settings.

How I work

I practice compassion by being an emphatic and non-judgmental listener. I am softly direct, interactive, honest and kind.


As a Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC) and a Board-Certified Art Therapist (ATR-BC) I use a dual approach to figure out if verbal counseling alone, art therapy or blend of both is appropriate. No prior artistic experience is necessary.

No one is ever expected to engage in the art making process during counseling sessions, but the invitation is always there. Regardless of age, art interventions can help individuals increase insight, express and/or contain difficult feelings, and gain a sense of control over parts of one's life that have felt unmanageable.


I received my Bachelor’s degree in Psychology from Indiana University with a focus on creative arts therapies and outdoor recreation. I became very interested in the power of the creative process to transform lives and improve wellness that I went on to earn my Master’s degree in Art Therapy, as well as obtaining my license as a professional counselor.
