Jessica Ziehl
I am passionate about working with children, adolescents, and adults through individual, family and group therapy while incorporating art. I pride myself on offering a safe and warm environment where my clients are free to explore. Prior to obtaining a graduate degree from Phillips Graduate University in Psychology with a focus in Marriage Family Therapy & Art Therapy, I spent many years in the business world working in human resources and design. I hold a Bachelor’s degree in Art History from Emory University in Atlanta, Georgia. As an Associate Marriage and Family Therapist and Trained Art Therapist working towards full licensure in the greater Los Angeles area, I utilizes art because it gives voice to experience through visual and symbolic expression while engaging the mind, body, and spirit. Through this kinesthetic, sensory, perceptual and symbolic experience, clients often experience improved self-esteem and self-awareness; access their resiliency and insight; & reduce conflict and distress. Art therapy is a unique therapeutic tool that can offer you immediate access to feelings and the means to express them in a safe manner. I am currently accepting referrals for "Girls Rise," an art therapy group that focuses on the issues facing adolescent females and moving through those challenges feeling empowered.
