Sensitives and sensitivity: the psychology of “artists”


my life as a poem




I work as a licensed professional clinical counselor. I work using an expressive arts methodology of resource building and decentering.  I work as a board certified art therapist teaching my supervise’s ways to facilitate expansion, surface, and resonance through art making with their clients.

I was taught at Southwestern college in Santa Fe, NM that the clients you are supposed to work with, will find you, and flourish your private practice. I find that “sensitives” find me and I find great joy in working with them.  Some of my “sensitives” identify as artists, some are hidden artists easily revealed, and some would not identify as artists, but do resonant with being a sensitive.

The needs of a sensitive: ” time to reflect, nature, art making, relationship harmony”

The reactions of a sensitive: “to hide”

a sensitive in denial of being a sensitive: “feels inadequate”

A sensitive : ” sees the beauty in the dark”

    Dearest Sara,

    I just love the mosaic of writings you have and share… your clear and sensitive articulation of what you do and with whom… and am also deeply moved by the language describing mosaics and mosaic making in itself, piece by colorful piece, like a life.
    love, Carolyn
