Psychotherapy For Artists
The perception of contemporary American culture towards artists is paradoxical. Oftentimes artists are either denigrated as eccentrics or revered as visionaries in the eyes of society. This confusing dynamic often causes internalized feelings of shame that can be corrosive to the core self and creative process.
I have experience both professionally and therapeutically working in the visual, literary and musical arts and understand that artists in general have more awareness of their unconscious mind. This increased consciousness can act as the source of inspiration and creative instinct, yet can also cause isolation from others, depression and difficult emotional states.
Psychotherapy can be an effective way for artists to work through blocks or develop new bodies of work while deeply exploring their inner selves. In this work we examine the parts of ourselves that either foster or inhibit creativity. With new insight one can create a more healthful work-life balance that fulfills needs for self care and professional development.
