“The More Creative Therapist”- coming in 2018 - is an online program designed for helping professionals like you.

If you're a psychotherapist, mental health clinician, psychologist, social worker, counselor, marriage and family therapist, coach, or other behavioral health professional, this course is for you. (And no, it's not about art therapy!) You'll learn skills for bringing a more creative self to your clients and your everyday life.

Creative Thinking

Use design thinking to generate inspired ideas, gather research, and refine your strategies toward proposed solutions. Help your clients think more creatively, too.


Creative Feeling

Feel your way through creative blocks. Work your way through the barriers of fear, judgement, and failure. Learn to fail fast and often toward creative solutions.


Creative Doing

Apply what you learn to making tangible things (not just ideas). You'll get your hands messy making simple things that embody your newfound creativity.



Group Coaching and a Creative Community Online 

I'll be meeting with you regularly online to hear how things are going for you, answer questions, and support your creative efforts.

You'll also have the benefit of a creative community in the form of a private Facebook group created just for students of this course. 


About Me

Hello! I'm Loretta Staples, program creator and licensed clinical social worker. With a background in art, design, education, and management, I draw from a diverse portfolio of skills and life experiences. Before becoming a therapist, I taught at Parsons School of Design and the University of Michigan, founded a pioneering digital design studio in San Francisco, consulted for Apple and Paramount, and curated exhibitions at the Yale University Art Gallery. I'm comfortable working in a variety of settings with people from all walks of life, bringing creativity, acceptance, ease, and humor to our work together.

“I'm definitely interested in becoming a more creative therapist.”
