I have found “The Creative Clinician” provides excellent exercises for helping stuck clients move forward. I liken Mari’s book to a beautiful diamond at the bottom of the river. For therapists who are fortunate to find this treasure and employ the exercises, the clinical rewards are truly gratifying. Mari’s book provides a focused, easy to follow, and supportive approach with these activities. Her ability to break down complex issues for clients in these exercises is outstanding. I highly recommend this book as a must have for any therapist looking to expand their repertoire of effective therapy tools. Very pleased!

Mari, I purchased “The Creative Clinician” and am finding it to be such a valuable tool to use with my clients. The explanations are easy to understand and the examples are relevant to real life issues. This is a great go to tool for any therapist wanting to help clients gain a deeper understanding of themselves.

Over the years, my clinical colleagues asked if I would consider putting together a workbook of my original exercises and activities to use within their therapy practices and clinical groups. I am please to share that I have created the following workbook, “The Creative Clinician: Exercises and Activities for Clients & Group Therapy©"

This e-workbook includes 31 of my most successful exercises and activities that I have used over many years with many clients and couples, as well as in a variety of groups and workshops. The therapist can download the Creative Clinician and immediately begin to use the materials with individual clients, couples, families and groups.

Each exercise includes instructions and graphics and is available in an organized, professional, PDF e-book in a printable format for easy access the therapist to print, keep on file, and use over and over again in your own practice for years to come.

Product Description: 31 clinical exercises and activities for therapy clients and groups in private practice or agencies. 176 pages. The e-Book exercises are designed to support healing, growth, and insight, and are focused on topics such as:

Each spring with my regular and new clients, I like to do a benchmark exercise to see where we are at, where we need to go and assess for new goals.

This spring, this week in fact, I used your fairytale exercise out of the book I purchased last year. I have used the exercise with 25+ clients these past two weeks. It has brought remarkable insight into their core beliefs and their inner authentic voices.

Thank you again for making your workbook available and being such an excellent resource for myself and my clients.

You are very much appreciated here in Arkansas!

I was so excited to purchase this kit! We are using several exercises from the “Creative Clinician” and the exercises “A Strong Woman vs. A Woman of Strength”, and “The Story of Me” have been especially powerful for our clients. The deeper we get into your work, the more we realize the material is invaluable to our practice. Thank you, Mari, for your extraordinary work that you are willing to share. Please know that your exercises are making a difference in the lives of women (and their spouses) here in Cincinnati!
