Therapy for Creatives

I came to psychotherapy by way of a decade spent working in the arts. I remain passionate about artistic expression, and provide specialized services for actors, artists, and creative professionals ready to get inspired and thrive. 

Those in creative industries experience a unique set of issues that sometimes make life feel chaotic and put pressure on close relationships. My background as a writer and performer affords me special insight into the stresses and nuances of the inner world of the creative, making me uniquely positioned to help creative professionals thrive, find inspiration, and tackle the specific challenges they face in life, business, and art. 

ART is the only way to run away without leaving HOME.

BRAINSPOTTING THERAPY

There is a strong connection between assisting in creativity and assisting in the processing of trauma. For those impacted by trauma and painful past experiences, creativity can play an important role in survival, resilience, restoration, and recovery. In turn, creativity and confidence flow more freely when inner obstacles and blocks are dissolved. I am excited to offer Brainspotting, a cutting edge brain-body therapy ideal for helping creatives heal from the past, ignite their talent, and pursue their dreams and career with all cylinders.

"Brainspotting works simultaneously with the right brain and the left brain, thus mirroring and integrating both the brain's artistic and scientific nature. When using Brainspotting to help artists with creative expansion and to coach artists within their particular art form, profound healing occurs simultaneously with the creative opening and deepening. When Brainspotting heals an artist of their wounds, their spectrum of creativity widens dramatically." - David Grand, Ph.D., founder of Brainspotting. 

Ultimately we are all creatives, whether our art is a recognized discipline, or a way of showing up for ourselves and in the world. I combine psychotherapy with somatic and experiential treatments to serve the personal, professional, and creative growth of folks in any life stage, field or discipline.
