I became a therapist so that people who feel judged by therapists or ashamed that they need support can feel safe to open up

I have learned that therapy is a technology not unlike ministry for the secular world. And like that clergyman who found me sleeping on bench in front of the cathedral, I want to help the people he can’t reach. I’m here for people feel judged and afraid to enter into a relationship with a therapist. I’ve never been ‘normal’. I’ve never been perfect. And, I’ve learned to be ok with who I am.

Some days are just plain tough and that’s okay, there are going to be days that you don’t have it completely under control but cut yourself some slack and don’t take it personally

Remember you are not alone in this – so many these days suffer from anxiety, seek support from others when you need it, there is nothing to be ashamed of. Reaching out shows strength and also demonstrates bravery for speaking out.

I want to reach as many of you as I can without having to spend all my time with my laptop instead of needle and thread

Almost every creative type I know, no matter the medium, has experienced a slump over the last half year. With so many things not operating in the normal way it is not a stretch to understand that energy once devoted to creative thought and activity is being used up in other ways. Understanding this is not our personal fault can help us to be less hard on ourselves but it doesn’t get us going again. After many years of studying creativity, and fighting my way back from many major and minor slumps myself I have found that there is no one single strategy that works all the time. So the following is a list of possibilities to try out if you need a blast of creative mojo.
