Meet Genia Young

Art Therapist



As a graduate of Loyola Marymount University's Master of Arts program in Marital and Family Therapy with Specialization in Clinical Art Therapy, I have over 10 years of experience in the field. I am a Board Certified Art Therapist and Art Therapy Credentialed Supervisor (ATR-BC, ATCS #14-240) with the Art Therapy Credentials Board and Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist (LMFT#91339) with the CA Board of Behavioral Sciences.  I also have a M.A. in Developmental and Educational Psychology.  It is my teaching experience in special education that helps me make the most of individual strengths and learning styles to find an effective approach to support professional development.


In my clinical experience in school-based mental health  I worked with a team to develop and implement an associates training program at Cedars-Sinai for AMFTs , ASWs, and LPCCs acquiring hours of experience towards licensure and/or art therapy registration. I am a part-time faculty member at Loyola Marymount University providing art therapy supervision to graduate students as well as a member of the Active Cultural Explorations Committee (ACE) that advises the department of Marital and Family Therapy on cultural considerations in education and community outreach, and provides professional development to alumni on cultural awareness.

Why Naturopathy

Why Art Therapy?

It can help with

Relationship Building

"Art is our one true global language. It knows no nation, it favors no race, and it acknowledges no class. It speaks to our need to reveal, heal, and transform. It transcends our ordinary lives and lets us imagine what is possible."-Richard Kamler

Self Actualization

"Art helps us grow and evolve in our understanding of ourselves, each other, and the world we live in." - Afzal Ibrahim about Alain de Boton's Art As Therapy


Art is a vehicle that allows us to transcend linear time, to travel backward and forward into personal and transpersonal history, into possibilities that weren't realized and those that might be. -Pat B. Allen


"Healing Art is being born as we speak. The concept is catching fire, is awakening in people's spirits…Artists, musicians and dancers are realizing their imagery has meaning….that their imagery heals them, others, their neighborhood, or the earth."
-Michael Samuels


"I found that I could say things with color and shapes that I couldn't say any other way-things I had no words for.  

- Georgia O'Keefe

Social Justice

“Art is an effort to create, beside the real world, a more humane world.” – Andre Maurois

Olive Branch

Awakening Creativity

"Creativity is inventing, experimenting, growing, taking risks, breaking rules, making mistakes, and having fun."

-Mary Lou Cook
