Treating Mind and Spirit as One

Ann Durant

Ann Durant, LCSW

Live Passionately, Authentically & Creatively!

Ann works with individuals, couples and groups. In 1996, she founded Counseling For The Creative Arts and specializes in working with performing, visual and literary artists. She has an extensive background in the arts which she integrates into her practice.

My approach is based on the deeply held belief that we are all inherently creative and that personal self expression is essential to maintaining our emotional well- being. I work psychodynamically and also draw upon expressive arts and mindfulness techniques to help my clients reconnect with and integrate their unique creativity into their daily lives.

I work with both individual as well as with collaborating artists helping them to deepen their creative process and achieve their full potential by resolving personal and professional problems including:

  • Creative Blocks
  • Stage-fright
  • Motivation
  • Self-Confidence
  • Perfectionism
  • Anxiety
  • Depression
  • Relationship Difficulties
  • Career Issues

Ann received her MSW from New York University and holds a certificate in Psychoanalytic Psychotherapy from The Psychoanalytic Psychotherapy Study Center. She also has extensive training in Expressive Arts Therapy from numerous programs including The New England Art Therapy Institute and The Center For Touch Drawing.
