The Creative Change Method

Phases of Care

The four Creative Change Phases of Care that move you beyond burnout:

Stress Management
Stress management approaches and creative outlets create a foundation for optimizing both your physical and mental health. We tap into breathwork techniques and work to access your creative flow states to open opportunities to focus on other areas of your health. 
Gut and Environmental Health
Optimizing your gut health, detoxification pathways, and reducing or eliminating environmental exposures, helps to improve nutrient absorption, boost metabolism, and enhance your digestive health. 

Energy and Hormones
Managing your endocrine system – the thyroid, adrenal, and sex hormones – is vital for stress management. A balanced endocrine system also helps to optimize energy production and support weight management, PMS, libido, and menopausal symptoms.

Mindset and Creativity
