Meet Dr. Joyce Block, The Creative Block Doctor and an award winning writer & mentor.

It's incredibly difficult to get anything done when you're having a massive creative block.
Trust me. I know.
How do you know if you're having a creative block? Well...

Ever hear a voice that says, "I can't do it"?

Whether in art or in life, creative blocks can shut you down if you don't know how to use them.
You're probably tired of lying awake at night going in endless circles.

I offer some radical interventions to break open your creative blocks and uncover their purpose.
I'll help you get out of your own way, no matter how long you've been stuck.

Unearth your inherent writing abilities

Do people tell you that "Your life is amazing. You should write a book, blog or memoir"? Well, you can and more easily than you think. 
My original writing process is founded upon the principles of my Visual Somapoem Process™, a multi-media, multi-sensory technique that helps you to write naturally. We go beyond the stilted and restrictive methods you learned in English class.  

We access your inner voice, the pictures in your head, and the feelings your experience as you see/hear your story. We bring back the deep riches that live in the underground of your being. 
"We have no art.
Everything we do is art."

      Don't take my word for it...

“Joyce Block’s process blends subtle transpersonal skills with modern communication tools to reveal to client/participant the deep issues that influence cooperation, communication, and group performance. The outcome - through candor, tears, and laughter-is both an achievement of both team goals and high levels of personal satisfaction."
"It is striking how well this works.”

-Michael Schneider, Creative Director, NY,NY
"Everything was easier because I had a seasoned guide with skills, compassion, resources and faith in the eventual wisdom buried in my life crises. 
She was there when I needed her."

- Liz Congdon, Baptist Minister, NJ
"Even though Joyce wasn't there physically, she was still holding me, next to me.
I was able to get all the support and hope I needed during a painful situation."

- Ana Martinez, M.S.W., CA

One of the principles that my work is founded on is creating from conflict:
turning the very problem you are experiencing into a piece of the solution.

This is a unique approach in the transition from focusing only
on one piece of the problem to looking at the whole.
Learn to honor your struggle so that the wisdom that lies within
he problem is brought into the light. 
”All sorrows can be borne if you put them into a story” - Boris Cyrulnik 
     This will become evident to you in the writing and mentoring services I offer.

In fact, this process of creating from conflict led me to the creation of my award winning children's book, Sunbird.
It was the creation borne from a painful experience. 
As Dr. Carl Rogers wrote, "What is most personal is most universal."
You will transform your struggle into a heroic jouney that will resonate with many. You'll be surprised that your personal
issues are connected with so many other well-lived lives. 


​  30+ Years of Experience
"I love to work with exceptional people - brave learners -
who can take a leap of faith.

We collaborate so you can create a new 
lifework narrative from your so called "messy" life.
