As a licensed MFT and board certified art therapist (ATR-BC) in private practice in Redwood City, I provide psychotherapy in the forms of Neurodevelopmental Art Therapy (NDAT), based on current neuroscience research, and includes interpersonal neurobiology and attachment theory; and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT). The emotional right brain is dominant in all forms of psychotherapy, and this is especially true in child and adolescent therapies. The key: therapeutic change most often happens when there is trust and connection between therapist and client in a safe and supportive environment, free from judgment or expectation.

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.

ACT is an empirically based psychological intervention that uses acceptance and mindfulness strategies, together with commitment and behavior change strategies, to increase psychological flexibility: Contacting the present moment fully as a conscious human being, and based on the situation, changing or persisting in behavior in the service of chosen values.
