Service Description

If you are a therapist, especially one in private practice, you know how isolated you can feel at times. One of the great benefits of working in an agency or large organization is the ability to receive support from and collaborate with colleagues. My down-the-hall colleague (and friend) Teresa and I wanted to start a group to offer that opportunity to ourselves and others with the added bonus of including creativity and artistic self expression into the mix as well, thus Creative Connections was born. We will meet on the second Friday of each month from around 10 am to noon. Each session, we will start with an art based check-in to explore and express a challenge that we would like to get some support or feedback around. Group participants will then have time to share their artwork and engage in discussion around their identified area of concern. Examples may include: How to increase or decrease caseload, set boundaries with clients around best practices, needing fresh ideas or support around a challenging case, or areas of countertransference that may involve a combination of personal and/or professional challenges. Any and all mental health clinicians are welcome to join, even those not in private practice. You do not need to consider yourself an artist to benefit from using art as a way of exploring and expressing your needs. Cost is $50 per session Art supplies, coffee, and snacks included. First meeting is November 11, 2022
