PRESIDENT | CO-FOUNDER

Robert
Maldonado, Ph.D.

Since pursuing an education into the human mind in 1995, Dr. Robert Maldonado has been focused on using his insights to help others thrive. With advanced degrees in Clinical and Counseling Psychology, he knows what it takes to overcome limitations and undergo a spiritual transformation. 

As the President, Co-Founder, and Educational Director of CreativeMind, Dr. Rob has a hand in everything the program has to offer.

“With CreativeMind, I wanted to provide something that combined cutting-edge science and spirituality in a non-clinical environment. There is no inherent contradiction between the two – the methodologies may be different, but both seek to improve human understanding of the ultimate truth.”

He has post-graduate degrees from the University of Texas and University of Wisconsin-Madison and has expert-level knowledge of child psychology and neurodevelopmental disorders. He trained at the Waisman Center in Madison, Wisconsin, an institute for advancing knowledge of human development, developmental disabilities, and neurodegenerative diseases, and has practiced psychology in Texas, Colorado and New York.

 

How the CreativeMind Method™ Works

Carl Jung, a Swiss psychologist, proposed deeper concepts around the development of personality and the unconscious mind. The CreativeMind Method is designed to assist individuals through what Jung called Individuation, the process of becoming a self-actualized human being.

You were born with unlimited potential, but you were conditioned in early life to merely survive. You were taught to think of yourself as this conditioned ego which narrows your perception to see only limitations of what is possible. If you do not change this, you end up in the wrong career, stressed and overworked, struggling with personal and professional relationships, and unfulfilled in life. Jungian Coaching with CreativeMind frees you from the constraints of your past patterns so you can perceive new opportunities, express your purpose and create a life you love.

 

The techniques in the method include shadow work, visualization, meditation, dream interpretation and the practice of cultivating emotional wisdom in everyday situations.

By combining Jungian Theory, Eastern Spirituality and Social Neuroscience in a deep, but practical way, our Life Coach Training graduates are able to guide clients using transformational methods to work with the unconscious and create lasting change.

The CreativeMind Method™ is more than just life coaching, it is a way of life.
