Hannah Ligon, board certified art therapist (atr-bc), owner
Greetings! I'm Hannah. I graduated with my master's degree in art therapy from Nazareth College of Rochester in 2018 and have been living and working in Chattanooga ever since.
My background is doing art therapy groups with adolescents struggling with trauma and addiction, adults with chronic depression & anxiety, adults with addiction, people with bipolar disorder, and people with schizophrenia.
My main reason for going into private practice is so that I can offer art therapy on an individual level. In my group work I have been missing being able to build personal connections with clients that are crucial to therapy work. I am hoping to one day expand into a larger space where I can offer groups, open studio space, and individual sessions.
I am trauma-informed, and have found that art therapy is a very healing agent for people living with PTSD/trauma. I am hoping to gain more experience helping people learn about trauma & how its effecting them currently, uncover and heal past wounds, regulate the nervous system to balance out trauma reactions, and access your innate resilience.
My approach can be tailored to your specific needs, but I will always help you feel heard and supported. I enjoy using stretching, breathwork, and mindfulness during session. We will find ways to use art in session that will best suit your needs, and some days we won't use art at all if we don't need to!
My current specialties are ages 13+ - people living with anxiety, depression, trauma / PTSD / dissociation, addiction, borderline personality, and bipolar.
