Individual Therapy

Being an artist is complicated. It is sometimes consuming. It can be life-giving and soul crushing in a single gesture. Managing the emotional and practical lifestyle of an art maker can feel as precarious as Humpty Dumpty's choice of seating. Artists are called, but the choice to follow is a personal one and can present itself in a variety of ways. It is a fallacy to believe creation directly correlates with poverty, disharmony, or celebrity. Creation is an act of inspiration. It takes courage to create, but it also takes ambition and will. Those same qualities are needed to create the structure that houses your creative drive. I help artists ground their creativity in a sustainable framework that includes not only career, but family, home, joy, novelty, innovation, money, and rest.
