  • Therapy for creatives

    banner image

    You have a creative impulse within you. You don’t just see the world as it is, but how it could be.

    Creatives face unique challenges in our increasingly fast-paced and disconnected world.  People who are often highly intelligent and sensitive by nature can become overwhelmed or may feel alienated in a culture that seems to value style over substance, or a quick-fix instead of a deep-dive into the nuances of the human condition.

    Some struggles that artists frequently face are:

    • Creative blocks
    • Work/life balance
    • Anxiety and depression
    • Developing appropriate personal and professional boundaries
    • Frustration with creating art in a corporate world
    • Self-doubt and “Imposter Syndrome”
    • Using others’ success to measure your own
    • Time mismanagement and procrastination
    • Financial struggles

    We can work to help you find strength, balance, and support as you navigate your creative path. Therapy may help you:

    • Reframe old narratives and habit patterns that no longer serve you
    • Learn tools for stress and anxiety management
    • Balance and strengthen your nervous system
    • Develop greater self-confidence and self-esteem
    • Assert yourself and set stronger boundaries
    • Develop a self-care plan
    • Develop and refine your artistic vision
    • Increase self-awareness
    • Balance your personal and professional time
    • Set specific, measurable, and focused goals
    • Release frustration, anger, and other “stuck” emotions

    Emotionally responsive but often overly stimulated clients are excellent candidates for CBT therapy. Please reach out to me for more information.
