Learn what successful, non-stuck creatives do every day.
Hey! I'm TJ Walsh an artist and artist-coach, and I've been exactly where you are right now.
I know what it's like to be a creative person who is stuck and afraid to step out into the world and let others know what I'm really about. I know what it's like to feel like I'm not as good as others around me and decide that I should just take a back seat in the creative action.
I also know what it's like to have support, guidance, and acceptance from other artists, makers, and creators. I'm here to be that support, guide, and encourager for you.
I am an internationally exhibited artist who has nurtured creativity in hearts and minds for decades. I received my BFA in graphic design and an MA in clinical counseling psychology. I regularly write and speak about art, culture, faith & mental health and I'm an expert in human relationships, human creativity, the creative process, fear, and procrastination.
Over the past 20 years, I've worked at the colorful intersection of creativity, art, therapy, and education. I'm an innovative, out-of-the-box artist, creative clinician and coach (Clini-Coach®) and Licensed Professional Counselor. My passion is to help you nurture your creative life so that you can be the powerhouse of an artist AND human you are created to be.
Before becoming a therapist and coach, I spent more than a decade working as a designer, art and creative director, and fundraising professional. I currently live in Philadelphia, PA with my partner and two sons, a dog and cat, and 65 houseplants, as well as a very robust and growing collection of artwork from emerging and rising artists.
