Who is Fuse?
Dr. Kathy Hoyt is a Licensed Psychologist with graduate degrees in Clinical, Developmental and Environmental Psychology. Her expertise draws on decades of experience doing personal and career counseling for children, teens, adults, and business leaders, along with consulting experience in business, educational, and clinical settings plus teaching & research experience at 9 universities. She has lived and raised a family in Bend since 1997.
I came to this work after observing a dramatic drop across the last 2 decades in creative thinking skills, spontaneity, and passion in my university students as well as the career and family counseling clients in my practice. Many people struggle with lopsided minds — utilizing only logic, facts, and data — ignoring the power of imagination, intuition, risk-taking, and passion. So when they need to make important problem-solving decisions, crucial skills were undeveloped and unavailable, and lead to poor decisions, stuckness, and despair. Critical thinking must be balanced with creative thinking for a happy, fulfilled mind and an authentic life. Fuse nurtures creative strategies and opens the space in each of us where intellect can collide with passion and logic welcomes spontaneity.
Fuse challenges the notion that you’re “not creative” or “not logical” through playful workshops combining fun, experiential methods with small group exercises and at-home practice while using research on thinking, brain health, career and business strategies.
If you are interested in having Dr. Hoyt speak to your group or business as a lecturer without a workshop, then please contact her directly to share your ideas and needs.
