I help Artists make their Art
As both an artist and a therapist I will help you unlock your creative potential to make your best art and live your best life.
Whether you are a dancer, musician, sculptor, painter, writer, actor, director, designer… however you express your art, there are times when you may feel depressed, stuck, upset about chronic procrastination, or even questioning your purpose and identity as a creative.
I use psychodrama to guide you through those difficult phases in ways that will encourage you to embrace where you are and how you got there so you can move on and do what you love. And do it well.
We can even apply this experiential approach to specific pieces you want to work on.

Isabella has been and still is very instrumental in helping to get my patients in a better place: they all tell me how much they enjoy working with her. As musicians and artists they feel safe and can relate to her creative and playful style with psychodrama.
Playwright and Founder of Thrive Creative
A muse herself, Isabella is a master therapist, novelist, psychodrama practitioner, and muse work facilitator.
She brilliantly creates atmospheres of safety, connection, humor, and boundless inspiration. With her sharp guidance, I’ve reconnected with my own wisdom and muse in a way that I can only describe as deeply healing and empowering.
Her workshops are nothing but Magic. Participants are always led to clarity and action. We have all left her workshops deeply inspired, re-ignited, and… ready to work!
