Lenan Rust, LPCC, LPAT, Counselor in Albuquerque
I have more than 20 years of experience in service to trauma survivors, and to adults who are dealing with many types of crises, life problems, despair and "places of stuckness." I am encouraging and non-judgmental, and strive to help clients pursue the changes they seek and increase their sense of wellness and mindful presence in their lives.
How we think is a vital part of the human experience--and the therapy experience. How we feel and relate emotionally, how we sense and how we imagine are also invaluable, innate resources for facilitating change and relief from suffering. I work with individuals and groups, and have Saturday hours.
We at Life Change Psychotherapy Institute, have over 80 years of combined clinical experience in helping people solve real problems, real issues and discover real change. Our therapuetic approach is grounded in the healing tradition of Jungian Depth Psychology and Existential/Humanistic Psychology.

Lenan Rust's Groups

Image Wisdom, an Art Therapy Group

Explore art therapy as a way of using your inner resources for problem-solving, reducing stress or increasing creativity. In this hands-on group or our periodic one-day workshops, you'll feed your imaginal sense (the part of you that imagines) and tap into its wisdom. Timing and length of group varies. Projects also vary, and can include imaging activities, collage-making and intro to communication with and about images. Call or email for more information on our current offerings.
