Supporting patients and families through therapeutic use of art and music

Facilitating creative, therapeutic expression for patients and families during their stay

Creative Arts Therapy


Our clinical vision as Art and Music Therapists is to uphold the hospital’s family-centered, multidisciplinary care team approach. We align with Lucile Packard Children’s Hospital Stanford’s vision to heal humanity through science and compassion, one child and family at a time.

Creative Arts Therapists are mental health professionals who are trained to support patients and families as they form creative coping skills, explore thoughts and feelings associated with hospitalization and utilize the arts to illuminate self-exploration and expression.
