Gwenn A. Nusbaum, L.C.S.W. , B.C.D.
Ever since I was young, I felt that it was my life’s calling to help others. I chose the path of psychotherapy and psychoanalysis to do just that. Over the past four decades, I had the privilege of working with other professionals, led workshops, and built cohesive therapeutic bonds with patients, that I value greatly. I have expanded the realm of my work to incorporate WordPaintsm, a coaching service that is optimal for writers, artists, and anyone drawn to art-making and project development. Being a committed and published writer myself, I understand and appreciate the challenges of getting the work done.
Combining my four decades of clinical work as a psychoanalyst and my creative side as a writer, enables me to offer other art-makers a psychologically-attuned, affirmative and focused approach to honoring yourself and creative goals.
I would like to help you identify and gain more mastery of what may stop or limit your progression forward as a writer, artist, or person struggling with expressing your creative self, completing your vision, and getting it into the world, if this indeed is what you wish to do.
