Therapeutic Creative Writing Group




“You think your pain and your heartbreak are unprecedented in the history of the world, but then you read. It was books that taught me that the things that tormented me most were the very things that connected me with all the people who were alive, or who had ever been alive.”  ~ James Baldwin

Writing and reading provides us with the solace of knowing our stories are shared through characters that champion our cause. Seeing the ailments and conditions one grapples with in elaborate descriptive detail and form, further reminds us what James Baldwin conveys in his beautiful quote, that even in our brokenness we are more alike, than we are different.

As a trauma therapist I give priority to cultivating life-affirming creative and spiritual pursuits that inform one's sense of pride and purpose, so as to encourage thriving.

With this intention I am recruiting people for a Therapeutic Creative Writing Group

This 90 minute Group will meet twice/month Sunday @ 5 PM in midtown Manhattan.  Consultation is free and cost for each group is $60.

For registration and details call Rev. Sheri Heller, LCSW 212-594-9801 or email at //

Psychodynamic Support Group for Artists




The gift of creativity emerges from our choosing to express our deepest selves. Yet if one is inadequately cared for, rejected and inconsistently supported, it is likely there are narcissistic wounds that hinder one from fully owning and manifesting aspirations. Consequentially, these oppressive messages and shame based beliefs and fears can stymie creative expression. The inner critical voice of shame may incessantly remind one of the oppressive stultifying messages internalized throughout the years. It sends the message that you don’t have the right to be who you are, and accordingly, you don‘t have the right to express yourself creatively and authentically.

As a psychotherapist and a creator of therapeutic theatre designed to inspire and encourage healing for at-risk underserved women and girls plagued by histories of childhood trauma, neglect, and abuse, I have a personal interest in understanding the abuse artists are frequently subjected to, the traumatic wounds awakened, and the process of recovery. 
Through mutual support and empathy artists from diverse mediums will encourage each other to know that their unique creative gifts matter; that they matter. Through dynamic processing of core injuries, which hinder creative expression and success, conscious reparative solutions that allow new healthier ways of being and creating can occur.

This 90 minute Group will meet in the theater district NYC twice/month Sunday @ 5 PM. Cost is $60. All participants must be interviewed (free of charge) by Rev. Heller prior to entry into group.
