My Approach to Helping

As a creative and performer, deep inside, you know you are meant to create or perform. You feel there is an energy inside of you that needs to be expressed through your art. Your art is what makes you feel alive - it is your meaning and purpose. Your art is not a choice, is what you are. Yet, emotional blocks, unhealed pain, worries, anxieties, emptiness, depression, addictive behaviors, inauthentic relationships are taking you away from being in touch with your creative or performing energy. Living from a place of emotional freedom, resilience, empowerment, and connectedness has a different impact!

Part of you wants to keep going. Part of you knows you need to pay attention to that inner voices, telling you something needs to change. Something is keeping you stuck, not allowing you to become what you can become. Create your life, don't let life happen to you!

    Creative Minds Psychotherapy is about helping Creatives and Performers find their Emotional Freedom. Living with emotional freedom is the place that allows you to: 1. Create and perform from an authentic emotional place. 2. Connect with your audience in a memorable way. 3. Be seen, valued, and rewarded for the creative or performer. 4. Enjoy authentic personal and professional relationships that further allows you to bloom and transform as an artist. Emotional conflicts, anxiety, depression, and emotional trauma cannot hold you hostage once you get in touch with your emotional freedom. You can make the leap from living with emotional conflicts, anxieties, depression, creative blocks, performance anxiety, and empty relationships to being in touch with your core self - the place where you can be the creative and performer that you really are. rnrnI am Dr. Mihaela Ivan Holtz, and I developed Creative Minds Psychotherapy(TM) to help creative people and performers in Beverly Hills, West Los Angeles, Hollywood, Studio City, and the surrounding areas with personal and professional challenges, relationships, creative blocks, anxiety, depression and addictions.
