About

As a deeply creative person, you feel like life only gives you two options, and neither one is particularly savory. Option 1: Find a way to stay housed and fed while dealing with mounting existential despair and confusion because your inner artist is basically dying. Option 2: Take the path less traveled while learning how to live life in free fall and become best friends with fear. Who wants fear as their constant companion? That sounds horrible. You feel uniquely cursed. You feel like fortune's fool. I know. Who asks to be born, and who the hell asks to be born as an artist, or a writer?
The good news is, you're tough, instinctive and smart enough to light your torch and see the next step, and then the next, even in the darkest of woods. It starts with a level of self-love, self-compassion and radical acceptance that no one taught you in school. You are going to find your way, and actually have fun creating a life that only you could.
You do not deserve to feel alone or to be in pain, and it does not have to be like this. You are not alone. I'm an integrative, EMDR-trained, licensed psychotherapist in Los Angeles. Evening and weekend hours available. I have tea, art supplies, oracle cards, and I sometimes talk astrology just for fun :) Free 20-minute consultations offered.
