I work with creative professionals, artists, and entertainers. I utilize my prior experience in the arts to connect with my clients.
Licensed Clinical Social Worker
Most issues in therapy come back to the topic of ambivalence at some point. Motivational interviewing is able to help you hear your thoughts so that you can let go of whatever is holding you back from a decision.
I help clients to address irrational thoughts they hold about themselves and their work. I help clients to identify where and how they are making these irrational thoughts, so they can learn to trust themselves more.
I believe the relationship is everything in therapy! Carl Rogers understood this best, and his work is a masterclass in demonstrating the magic of the therapeutic relationship.
Confidence is everything when you are working in the arts. If you don't buy it, they won't! I help clients find self-esteem outside of their work, and help to let go of the anxieties holding them back.
Working in the arts causes stressors all kinds. When your product is your art (or yourself!) it is hard not to get emotionally invested in the ups and downs of your career. I help clients to find that balance.
I help clients working in the arts find direction in their career. I help clients working in other fields to make their transition into the arts, and also clients that are hoping to transition out of working as a creative professional.
