Is Every Day Difficult?
Creativity is one of our greatest assets. It allows us to express our deepest feelings and most profound emotions in a productive way—a way that serves us in moving forward, rather than keeping us stuck or, worse, going down the rabbit hole.
When we consider therapy, it’s typically within the context of ‘talk therapy’. We are often so caught up in our ability to speak we can forget there are other ways to express ourselves and our feelings. In fact, alternative therapies, like art, music, dance, or movement, can have an even more profound impact on our personal development than traditional talk therapy.

So many Americans struggle with depression. It is one of the most commonly diagnosed mental health disorders in our country. It can be hereditary or developed through long term and ongoing exposure to depression and the behaviors associated with the disorder when left undiagnosed or untreated. Sometimes, unresolved traumas, losses and significant life transitions can lead to depression. The depression experience can vary greatly as people struggle with different symptoms and levels of symptom severity. While one person may experience a sense of sadness and discontent with life, another is overwhelmed by every day responsibilities, entertains suicidal or engages in self-harming thoughts and behaviors.
Some can navigate through the symptoms without professional care while others need help to regain their life. The good news is that depression treatment is proven to be very effective, helping millions of Americans each year. If you’ve been struggling emotionally and physically for some time, an experienced and compassionate therapist can help you find relief and a path to healing.
