Licensed Professional Counselor in Sykesville, MD
I am currently completing a Creativity Coaching program with the Creativity Coaching Association. This program focuses on the needs of working Creatives and the challenges they face. professionally, emotionally, socially, intellectually and how to use the naturally given strengths of creative personalities and the pursuits of their art forms to live their healthiest lives. This program supplements the fundamental perspectives of the work that I do.
I hold a certification in Mindfulness Based Cognitive Therapy and use this approach regularly with my clients. It integrates the foundations of CBT with Mindfulness approaches to help us understand and move through rather than resist emotional experiences.
I specialize in working with Creative People for support with "stress." The source of your stress may be wide and varied, but to me, this means your nature-given creative energies are out of alignment. Creative People have passion. This is vital for you to be able to create. When this is not directed in a healthy way it builds up as stress. In counseling, we identify what isn't functioning and get you back into a healthy state flow.
One of the most common problems plaguing Creative People is self-esteem. The most amazing creators struggle with loud inner critics and perfectionism. Beginning as motivation, high standards, and drive, the issue of inner critic hovers over many of us drowning out what initially it was meant to inspire. In counseling, we work to refocus self-esteem from our products to our internal resources and reclaim a healthy inner voice.
For Creative People, creative growth is intimately tied to personal growth. That is why the problems you face as a Creative Person deserve expert knowledge of your creative mind: so you can fully recover and thrive. As a creativity expert, I can help you solve problems from your daily life to your creative career so you can live in a state of ease and flow.
