Summer A Myers, MA, MFTi, Associate Marriage & Family Therapist in Manhattan Beach
Art therapist now accepting new clients-some weekend and evening hours available. I help adults, adolescents, and children with anxiety, depression, LGBTQ issues, faith crisis, life transitions, and parenting and maternity issues. Clients find me to be warm, genuine, and easy-going. I believe in developing the strengths natural to each individual, in tackling life problems from multiple angles, and in using creativity for healing. I have personal experience with postpartum depression and anxiety, parenting, and religious struggles. My first-hand experience provides me with empathy and insight into the difficulties faced by many individuals, couples, and new parents.
How can art therapy help you? Art therapy builds on traditional talk therapy, adding an element of nonverbal, metaphorical, and expressive processing that goes beyond words. Artmaking can be meditative, cathartic, empowering, and healing, and it helps to foster insight and verbal discussion. No art skills or previous experience needed.
I serve children, adolescents, adults, and couples as an Art Therapist and Associate Marriage and Family Therapist (#100335). I am supervised by Tracy Bevington (LMFT #53455) in a group private practice with discreet, comfortable offices in Santa Monica and Manhattan Beach. I offer some weekend and evening hours.
