I work with clients who identify as creatives and struggle with traumatic stress, grief, career-related stress, creative blocks, anxiety, avoidance, inner critical voices, procrastination, fear of visibility and rejection.
Clients who work with me generally have had stressful life events / traumatic histories that affect the ability to move forward. Also, they often have inner blocks, fears, inner critical voices and avoidance patterns that prevent them from going after their goals.
They often have struggles that affect their voice (literally and/or metaphorically) and the ability to communicate feelings and needs, as well as creative blocks and performance anxiety.
I use talk therapy, creativity, visualization, and inner speech transformation to discover new freedom, power and unconditional love for the self.
My philosophy of care is the same as my mentor, Dr. Louise Montello:
"It is so important to realize that, regardless of what happened to you in the past, you do matter."
First visits can feel differently for different people. Thus, I focus on understanding what brought a potential client to my page and what their goals and needs are. Then, we discuss what tools and steps we can begin implementing that can get an individual where they need to be.
I have walked in the shoes of my clients in several ways and I understand some of the struggles and blocks they may be facing. I also have gained a lot of experience with my current clients who make me a better provider everyday.
