Lawna Gamble is an accomplished Adlerian therapist, published author, motivational healer and living testament that mental illness is not a personal weakness and can be overcome. Willow Cove Art and Wellness Boutique is a dream come true for Lawna who imagined this business in this location while working as a curatorial intern in graduate school. For many years, Lawna had despaired and denounced a mental health diagnosis. As a formally trained artist, educator, nonprofit manager, and creative icon she has confronted issues such as mental health, romantic relationships, social ills, or financial woes in a way that is open, creative and humorous. Throughout her lifetime, Lawna has crafted numerous portfolios, spent 1,000s of hours in various therapies and providing counsel, and experienced life transformation in its most organic form. Willow Cove is an arresting combination of her artistic talent, breadth of professional experiences and passionate interest in the modalities that helped her step into her own mental, physical and emotional healing. Lawna spent the last four years as a mental health professional in Minneapolis, MN. She returned to Cleveland in 2018 to care for her aging mother. After this stint of being a primary caregiver, Lawna decided not to re-enter the workforce rather pursue her long-time entrepreneurial interest; thus Willow Cove was born.
