Do you express yourself creatively as a visual artist, writer, musician or other creative type?
Are you struggling with internal resistance, fears, or judgments?
Are you holding yourself back with self-doubts or self-criticism?
Perhaps it's time to get out of your own way and let your creativity flourish.
For many, creativity and artistic self-expression are vitally important components of living a fulfilled life. People sometimes encounter difficulty when these values are not supported by family, friends, work, or society. Invariably, it's challenging to reconcile one's vision of living an artful life or making a meaningful artistic contribution to the world within the constraints of an environment that does not support these goals.
However difficult it is to deal with the judgments of others, it is even more insidious when we allow our own critical inner voice to shut us down and block creative flow. If you are suffering as a consequence of your own judgments, it's crucial to learn to confront your inner critic and turn down the volume on this voice. As your therapist, I can offer you the tools you need to bring this self-condemning voice into proper perspective.
Whether you are an established artist or just beginning to define yourself, I'd like to help you address your struggles. My goal is to provide a safe environment for you to gain clarity on the issues and the support you need to resolve them. If you feel challenged by some aspect of the creative process, regardless of your mode of expression, or just need help nurturing your creativity, therapy could yield solutions for you.
To thrive as an artist means something different to each of us - let's explore what it means to you. Call me at: (415) 292-5888 or email me to set up a free initial telephone consultation.
