Life is not random. Sometimes we have this intuition in the midst of difficult situations but are not sure what to do with it. Turning points are usually waiting for us when we get inside the themes brought on by the difficulty. I work collaboratively on finding those points of insight, putting them into workable terms, and taking actionable steps with you. In practice, this happens via a combination of approaches I have found effective. Including Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), Object Relations theory, and related models. I have several years of post-graduate institute training and experience.

As a composer and drummer, I bring creativity and lateral thinking to this work and understand unique life issues facing creative personalities. The sometimes long, winding journey toward actualization. I offer sliding scale to musicians and other artists.

I work best collaboratively (non-hierarchically). I have spent a good deal of time with unconscious dynamics, experiential avoidance, and the accumulated small 't' trauma of too much time in Sartre's 'bad faith.' My stance is broad (Bion, Balint, Kohut, Chekov, Pressfield, Dooley and others) and feel fortunate to have helped many people over the years.

Zev Elman's Groups

Work of Art Group

Art is hard. Sustained creative work that actually leads somewhere tangible is not simple. Although the tools for making great art, music and writing are widely available, the struggle to bring something of value to fruition is as hard as it ever was. Often for internal reasons. At many stages of a career path or project, mental blocks, loss of flow and uneven work occur. Awareness of what underlies these lags and blocks helps hugely in navigating them. This group offers insight and support in dealing. Please visit us on Facebook at The Work Of Art Group for more info.
