We are Creative Now Therapy

In our practice you enter into a culturally sensitive and safe space where your infinite complexity is invited and explored.

Our approach to the practice of coaching and psychotherapy is holistic. All of you is welcomed, just as you are. Together we will work collaboratively to enhance your ability to get your needs met, make choices with more awareness, and support yourself through life’s uncertainty. This process includes assisting you in tuning in to your body, beliefs, and unfulfilling patterns in order to increase your ability to stay present with your shifting experience – where so much of our wisdom lives.
