How My Mind Works
I began with a pencil and a sketch pad. I created a world where my mind had no limits. My imagination and the art I created drove my purpose. For the first time, I felt passionate and connected to a sphere of exploration and meaning. Within my curiosity, I fell in love with art — the making, the materials, the movement, the depth, and the feelings it evoked within me. Art shaped my perspective on life, but more importantly, it gave me a reason to continue growing.
…and in that moment, she said she was an artist…and from then on, she was.
Sarafina Arthur-Williams – CEO & Founder of Intentional Simplicity, LLC
I believe that all people are looking for their “art.” May it be, in fact, art or a different passion, we all strive to be heard and to share our perspective on the world. My role as a Creative Consultant and Wellness Psychologist, MA, is to open the space for my clients to gain an understanding of their purpose, themselves, and the world around them. As a masters-level practitioner, I implement change through relational and scientific-based practices. I create a holistic environment that capitalizes on diversity and meets my clients’ needs by offering a variety of learning methods.
Personal Learning Goals
To properly offer adequate space for growth, I must first understand who I am and how my presence resonates with others. That being said, I align my philosophy with both my creative and psychological approaches to your business or independent growth. I am skilled in several theoretical orientations, multicultural competencies, creative expressions, and counseling techniques. I integrate real-life experiences to help my clients increase their creative and intuitive knowledge. I encourage my clients to use critical thinking and creativity when processing information. To do so, I offer a range of methods that target inclusivity and diversity to help my clients grow as a business and as self-directed individuals.
Case Method Learning
Arts- Based Learning
I teach clients how to develop their identity. I encourage clients to be ambitious, driven, and accountable for their decisions. I challenge my clients by emboldening them to stay curious about other perspectives. I support their journey while also instilling an atmosphere of set expectations so personal growth can be pursued and sustained.
As a Creative Consultant and Wellness Psychologist, MA, I endeavor to provide my clients with the space to explore their truth.
With Intention, Sarafina
