Discover U Podcast: Art Therapy – How Creativity Can Heal with Sarah Gallop

Montare Media presents Season 2, episode 13 of the Discover U Podcast with JD Kalmenson: Art Therapy - How Creativity Can Heal, with Sarah Gallop, LMFT, ATR JD Kalmenson interviews Sarah Gallop, LMFT, ATR, a psychotherapist and registered art therapist, and owner of Creative Space Art Therapy, with practices in Los Angeles and Denver. Learn about how the act of creating art with color, line and shape can reveal hidden, unhealed aspects of unconscious material. Once brought to consciousness, these dynamics can be seen, understood, and worked with therapeutically. Sarah received her MA in Marital and Family Therapy with an emphasis in Art Therapy from Loyola Marymount University. She uses a strength-based approach to work with both children and adults, addressing barriers and encouraging growth. Before starting her private practice, she was Clinical Director of La Ventana’s Adolescent Intensive Outpatient and Partial Hospitalization program in Santa Monica, CA. Prior to that she worked as a clinical art psychotherapist at Destinations for Teens, where she often used art making as a tool to provide adolescent clients with an alternative form of communication, to help them bypass defenses, and to provide a tangible record of change. Sarah has also worked with adults struggling with a range of mental illness, trauma, and addiction, both at Didi Hirsch and The People Concern in Los Angeles, often using art to help them grow, thrive, and live their best lives. She specializes in anxiety, depression and relationship issues, and offers clients tools to help clients not only feel better but also discover their authentic selves. She works within various theoretical orientations including psychodynamic theory, cognitive behavioral therapy, and narrative theory. She truly believes in the power of art to uncover truths and to help clients make the changes they’d like to see in their lives.
