My name is Claire Latané (la-ta-nay). I am a writer, landscape designer, and healthy community advocate based in northeast Los Angeles. My training in journalism and landscape architecture allow me to communicate complex ideas around the impacts of design on people and natural systems in the simplest of terms. I practice, teach, and write about design with nature and its positive impacts on people and community. After twelve years of working in highly respected landscape architecture firms, I now serve clients seeking help with design for mental health and well-being.
