Lesley Burke is a Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC) and a Registered Art Therapist (ATR) practicing in Oregon since 2007. She has extensive community mental health experience along with treating trauma. Lesley strives to create a supportive healing space for individuals to process life experiences. Lesley uses a technique known as Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) to help process painful memories associated with trauma. She pulls in art therapy activities, dialectical behavioral therapy (DBT), mindfulness, and cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) as needed to promote the healing process.
“As a certified yoga instructor, I may incorporate breath and body awareness when appropriate to facilitate relaxation and grounding. These are important when experiencing anxiety or trauma triggers. They are equally helpful for those in recovery.”
