Online therapy for creatives who are overwhelmed, anxious, and depressed

Hi, I’m Dr. Roberta Ballard, clinical psychologist.

I work with creative professionals and artists struggling with anxiety, depression, and burnout.


When my clients first start online therapy with me, they feel burnt out and overwhelmed. They are talented, creative and perceptive, but they are running low on energy and motivation. 

They are tired of fighting a chronic battle against anxiety and depression, and feeling depleted in the process. Also, it’s wearing them out to work so hard to carve out a place for themselves, in a world that doesn’t always reward individuality. 

It’s taking a toll on their confidence, and the more worn down they get, the less inspiration they feel. They aren’t as healthy as they want to be, and in addition, their relationships have become strained. Old patterns aren’t working anymore, but they can’t figure out how to break out of them.

Therapy can help you work through blocks as well as heal past wounds. You’ll also learn new ways to cope, and how to set boundaries that work for you. If you deal with chronic stress and low mood, you can learn how to manage it, not the other way around. 

Imagine that you feel more at ease with your life and your feelings.

As your physical and emotional health improve, your career and relationships get better, too.  

You can live a creative and joyful life, without being overwhelmed or drained by your emotions.  

From the comfort of your own home or office, we can meet in online therapy and start you on a path toward health and fulfillment.

There is hope. Therapy for anxiety and depression can help.

In therapy, my clients find themselves managing the ups and downs of life with more resilience and ease. They also begin to live with more energy, courage, and motivation to direct towards living a life that feels true to themselves. As a result, they feel more balanced and confident.

    Online counseling (teletherapy) works best for those with mild to moderate symptoms. If you are feeling actively suicidal or in crisis, I recommend that you pursue therapy with someone who provides in-person services.

    I specialize in working with artists and creative professionals who are struggling with anxiety, depression, and/or burnout. My clients are adults and adolescents (age 13+).

    The initial session is the time for you to start to share your story, and to talk about your goals and what you would like to change. I also ask questions about your background and history, and what issues are bringing you to therapy. Another important aspect of the first session is deciding if we are a good fit, for example, do I seem like someone you can trust?

    We will talk about what your goals for therapy are, and I will begin to figure out how to help you get there.

    The first session is 60 minutes, and after that, appointments are 45 minutes.

    My practice is all online. Therapy sessions are conducted via a secure and easy-to-use telehealth platform, similar to Zoom or Skype. Established clients can also hold some sessions by telephone, if needed.

    I am a licensed psychologist in Georgia and North Carolina, and I can provide online therapy to all U.S. states that are part of PSYPACT.
