Art Therapy Referral List

The Department is pleased to provide this referral list to members of the public who wish to engage the services of an art therapist. All the individuals on this list are graduates of the LMU program, have marriage and family therapy licenses (LMFT) and are Registered Art Therapists (ATR or ATR-BC). Individuals on this list having the designation 'Recommended to LMU MFT Students' are NOT endorsed by LMU for their clinical abilities, but only that they have agreed to our referral list policy of offering current LMU MFT students a reduced rate or sliding fee scale. In addition, individuals on this list who are designated as providing "Post Graduate Supervision" have fulfilled the Art Therapy Credential Board's requirements to provide such supervision.   

ATR Requirements Change: Effective January 1, 2018, a minimum of half the required post-education art therapy experience hours must be supervised by a board certified art therapist (ATR-BC) and/or an art therapy certified supervisor (ATCS). The ATCB will continue to accept supervision provided by a registered art therapist (ATR); however, a minimum of half the supervision hours must be provided by at least an ATR-BC. This change will apply to all ATR applicants who graduate (or complete their education requirements) on or after January 1, 2018.

If you are an LMU MFT graduate and would like to apply to be on this referral list, please follow the application procedures HERE.
