It can feel impossible sometimes to let down your guard, feel into your heart, and discover your potential for change. I offer a creative healing space where you can explore the hard stuff and grow into the good stuff. My training and experience cover diverse healing practices, and my office in downtown Santa Monica includes an art studio space where you can explore and play. Whether you are arriving to therapy yourself, with a partner, with your family, or to join a group... with me you will find the necessary support to safely go inward. I love this work, and I will hold space for you to show up as you are. I am currently accepting new clients for both in-person and telehealth services. Schedule a free consultation today.

Hannah Schaler, LMFT Practice Description
I am currently accepting new clients for both in-person and telehealth services. Schedule a free consultation today to see if we are a good fit. Coming into therapy can be a big, frightening choice. You may be feeling stuck in an impossible situation or tired of dealing with certain patterns in your life. I bet that you have already tried everything in your power to create change. You might be wondering how a stranger can even begin to help. I know these thoughts because I have been there myself and have walked countless clients through these same feelings. Starting is hard, but the rewards are worth it! I may not know the details of your story yet, but I know that I can help because I understand how brain and body work together to carry you through life. I have witnessed how a mind can snag on certain events and experiences, or how a body can begin to hold on to fear and resentment. I can support you to untangle your thoughts, process feelings, and discover what might be stopping you from experiencing the life you truly want. I am a licensed marriage and family therapist and trained art therapist with experience treating trauma, neurodivergence, eating disorders, and personality disorders. I am certified in Trauma-Focused CBT (TF-CBT), Emotionally Focused Therapy for Couples (EFT-C) and Collaborative Divorce. Prior to training as a therapist, I worked as a yoga teacher and personal trainer while also studying fine art and art history. I love combining my education as a therapist, knowledge of the human body, and passion for art and culture. I can provide a therapy experience that is rooted in evidenced-based theories, is developed from years of varied experience, and is as unique as you are. Sessions with me typically look different from week to week. I will draw on myriad interventions from schools of art therapy, behavioral therapy, mindfulness, and somatic healing. Depending on what you respond to, I will continue to customize and craft your treatment plan based on clearly defined goals. If you want to know the "why" behind each intervention, I will talk you through what I am implementing and why it might benefit you. I believe that therapy should be a co-created experience and that only you know what works best for you. I promise to be with you through this process without judgment and remain attuned to your needs throughout. I want you to have an impactful and life-changing experience. If we are not a right fit, I am happy to refer you to someone who I think can help. My goal is to get you the support you need, so that you can start feeling better today.
