I recently wrote a guest blog post for the Therapeutic Center for Anxiety and Trauma, where I work in private practice. It's about a time in my life when being creative taught me about what it means to be authentic. You can find the post here, and I hope you enjoy it: Your Voice Is Waiting For You
P.S. Please contact me if you are interested in being added to the mailing list for information about our next Artist's Way Workshop therapy group, which begins February 2017.
I was recently interviewed by Stephanie Knutson of San Diego Writers, Ink about my upcoming class Unlocking Writer's Block. Here's an excerpt:
SDWI: Writer’s block is something we all struggle with, do you find it hard to help people overcome it?
Rachel Moore: I don’t find it difficult to guide people in how to face writer’s block in the short term. As with anything, it’s the long-term practice that is tough to maintain. I do enjoy helping individuals discover which tools will work best for them to continue accessing and activating their creative genius.
SDWI: I read that your specialty is helping writers, artists, and musicians rediscover their joy, can you go into more detail about that?
RM: Sure! Oftentimes in our culture creative people are put down or told their passions are not valid or necessary. This can cause stress and anxiety, which can lead to all sorts of ailments. I help my clients rediscover the joy in art and life and remember their purpose. For many people, art gives them a reason to live, which is a vital component for good mental health.
