Tori Connolly, LPATA
Licensed Professional Art Therapy Associate
I am a practicing Licensed Professional Art Therapist Associate (LPATA). I graduated from University of Louisville in 2021 with a master’s degree in Art Therapy. I’ve worked with teens and adults struggling with anxiety, depression, and post-traumatic stress. My approach to therapy is strength-based to help clients discover (or rediscover) their own strengths to overcome challenges.
I encourage art therapy to enhance the process of healing and self-expression. Using the resulting artwork to cultivate resilience, manage conflicts, and reduce anxiety. In addition to art therapy, I have experience using a variety of therapeutic modalities including; motivational interviewing, person-centered therapy, dialectical behavior therapy (DBT), and eye movement desensitization and reprocessing (EMDR).
I strive to establish a trusting relationship that promotes growth and clarity around a variety of issues without judgment. I would love to partner with you on your journey towards healing and self-discovery. My focus is to provide a comfortable, compassionate atmosphere where you can share your stories and gain helpful insights.
We have all gone through hardship and I believe therapy can allow us to process challenges, build resilience, and learn new ways to cope. My goal is to offer guidance and support to find the solution within you.
