Lenora: The Meaning Behind the Name of My Art Therapy Practice

Updated: Jun 9, 2023

As a young woman entering adulthood, I found myself grappling with questions about my identity, my values, and what it means to be an adult. It was a time of uncertainty and change, but also one of growth and self-discovery. As I pursued a career in art therapy, I knew that I wanted to create a space where young adults could explore these questions and find their own answers.

That's why I chose the name Lenora for my practice. Lenora is a name that means "light", "sun ray", or "torch", which speaks to the transformative power of creativity and self-expression. For those who are still figuring out who they are and who they want to be, art therapy can be a guiding light, helping them to illuminate their own inner strengths and resources.

Lenora also means "compassionate one". As an art therapist, I bring empathy and care to my clients, creating a space where they feel seen, heard, and held. Through art therapy, they can explore their emotions and experiences in a safe and supportive environment, building the resilience and self-awareness they need to navigate the challenges of young adulthood.

Finally, Lenora is a name that has personal significance to me, as it was the name of my grandmother. She was a woman who embodied strength, resilience, and compassion, and I am honored to carry on her legacy through my work as an art therapist. By choosing the name Lenora for my practice, I hope to convey a sense of warmth, creativity, and compassion, and to reflect the values that guide my approach to art therapy.

I’m super excited to grow and share this journey with you and I hope that Lenora will be place where you can feel safe and supported and free to express yourself.
