Most of my professional life, and even now I work as a musician. The arts and creativity in general are very important parts of being human. I think the human spirit longs to create, in many different ways: cooking, writing, acting, music, painting, and in the sciences. While I usually do not incorporate the arts directly into my session,(I only do if it comes up organically) it does form a large part of my personal background. I also believe the mind and body want to be stable, and we have an innate ability to heal. Evedence based therapy can provide a catylst to emotional healing.
