A licensed professional counselor (LPC) is a mental health provider who holds a master’s or doctoral degree in counseling and who has met all requirements set forth by the state licensure board to provide quality mental health care.


Leah Blankenship (pronouns: she/her) is an experienced licensed professional counselor, who works with children, adolescents, adults, and groups. Her specialty interests include: women’s, men’s, and gender issues; career development; addictions; and trauma. She integrates art therapy, positive psychology, cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), gestalt, and multicultural counseling into practice. She utilizes treatment approaches that are evidence-based and uniquely tailored to each client.

Leah completed her bachelor’s degree at Indiana Wesleyan University in pre-art therapy, earning a dual bachelor’s degree in psychology and studio art. She completed her master’s degree in counseling and art therapy at Ursuline College. Leah is passionate about utilizing a holistic health approach to promote wellness for all individuals. Additionally, she enjoys leading art therapy groups and cultivating a safe place for group members to build relationships and grow through a wide range of issues. She is dedicated to setting and reaching goals with clients.

Prior to joining the Wellness Grove, Leah has worked in a variety of clinical settings. These have included: residential facilities, an intensive outpatient program, emergency services, and a military hospital/clinic for posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and traumatic brain injury (TBI). She has experience leading art therapy groups for adults with substance use disorders, veterans with trauma including PTSD, children in low-income areas who have experienced trauma, adolescents exploring LGBTQ+ identity, and adults with severe mental health struggles including personality disorders. She has completed her previous internships at Intrepid Spirit at Camp LeJeune; Riverview Elementary School in Marion, IN; US Veterans Affairs Department in Marion, IN; and Ravenwood Health in Geauga County.
