The Helen B. Landgarten Art Therapy Clinic

Helen B. Landgarten

The mission of the Helen B. Landgarten Art Therapy Clinic is to serve the community by offering clinical art therapy interventions to underserved children and families who have experienced trauma or are facing serious obstacles in life. Thanks to the generosity of donors, the clinic has been able to do just that.

"We are not building a building, we are building a community of art therapists" is how Helen B. Landgarten described the clinic named in her honor at its inauguration. Landgarten is a pioneer art therapist and founder of the Graduate Department of Marital and Family Therapy at LMU. The clinic also serves the educational needs of the department's graduate students by providing opportunities to participate in and observe art therapy services in non-clinical settings in the community.
