Announcement icon Due to Covid-19, I have been providing art therapy and other psychotherapy services by phone and video since mid-March 2020.
My clinical approaches include Neurodevelopmental Art Therapy (NDAT) with bilateral restructuring, Mindfulness-Based Art Therapy (MBAT) with breathing and meditation techniques, and the metaphor-based Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT). I also teach mindful self-compassion which is strongly predictive of well-being, and lower levels of anxiety and depression. The emotional right brain is dominant in all forms of psychotherapy which is especially true in child and adolescent therapies. Therapeutic change happens when there is trust and connection between therapist and client in a safe, supportive, and judgment-free environment.
Talk therapy is hard for people with trauma histories. Body-based results of trauma are stored in the right hemisphere. Activation of the right hemisphere through expressive art therapy allows access to stored physical and emotional traumatic memories, sensations, feelings, and thoughts which can then be expressed in visual form.
I am also an outpatient provider and art therapist for Child and Adolescent Psychiatry at Kaiser Redwood City, often working in non-verbal ways to help patients navigate depression, anxiety, and trauma. I provide personal therapy for grad students on a sliding scale, and am available to sub as an individual or group supervisor in agencies or privately.
