Creativity And Artistic Expression
Practice Description: I provide a safe place for people to be able to express themselves and figure out what is going on. I am solution focused, compassionate, caring and encouraging. I help people to be able to identify what is the problem and then the options and tools to help in solving what is going on. I can address issues around anxiety, feeling down and depressed, relationship issues, personal growth and transformation, creativity or a variety of other concerns. I am client centered in my approach and want to help you to feel more joy and happiness in your life. I am drawn toward healing and using the skills I have learned after 30 years of helping people.

I also can use music if you like as an option to help to feel more balanced and gain healing and insight into your daily life. I am an international recording artist, with my solo piano album, "The Music Of Yosemite" heard on Youtube and elsewhere, selling more than 100,000 albums worldwide. I do Music Portraits for people. I compose an on the spot piece of music on the piano keyboard as a sonic portrait of the essence of who you are portrayed in music and recorded for you. The sessions are meant to be optimistic and encouraging.

Creativity is a speciality area of importance. I am a piano player/recording artist and composer, I can help you to be more creative whether on the job as a problem solver, a thinker outside the box, or in your specialty area of the arts. I feel the secret of being creative is learning to be and express who you are, authentically in the world, and pursue those things that you truly enjoy and love to do.
