Do you feel like you've tried everything with your child, but they struggle to benefit from traditional talk therapy because they are resistant to opening up? Do you have a creative teen who struggles with depression or anxiety, but enjoys expressing themselves through art? Do you yourself feel stuck in destructive patterns, overwhelmed by anxiety or depression or blocked by past trauma? Art Therapy may be the answer for you or your child. As Art Therapists, we incorporate talk therapy with art making to help our clients unlock their creative potential, look at problems with fresh eyes, and develop new creative coping skills for dealing with difficult emotions or situations. We provide a warm and empathic environment where your child will feel safe to explore and express their authentic self and get in touch with their creativity. Through processing their art verbally with one of our art therapists, they will gain insight into themselves and their experiences or patterns that may be presenting difficulties for them. 

We have extensive experience working with young people and adults with depression, anxiety, trauma, substance abuse, self harm, suicidal ideation, grief, ADHD and other behavioral and mental health issues. Additionally, our newest art therapist, Melodee Robinson also offers Couples Therapy and Family Therapy. We are a trans/non-binary/LGBTQIA+ affirming practice. We offer a safe space for your child to explore, grow and even have fun in the process. No prior experience or skill in art making is necessary to benefit from art therapy. 

We also have a High School Girls Group and Young Women's Group!

The East Bay Art Therapy office is conveniently located off 580 in Oakland (near Piedmont ave and MacArthur blvd) and we have a flexible schedules with afterschool/evening and weekend appointments. (Tonia Herrero, EBAT owner is also licensed in Oregon for telehealth!)

Clients currently have the option to do sessions remotely through Zoom OR in person in the office. The office is large enough for social distancing during 1:1 sessions.
