Philosophy:

I help people flow with their creative practice so they can feel greater balance, joy, and empowerment in their lives and work. Often creativity is blocked by fear or past trauma, and I am adept at helping people heal those wounds and fears so that creativity can be a guiding force in their lives.

 

Methods of Working:

In-person and via phone and Skype. I find all three methods work well in my Co-Creating practice.

 

Specializations:

I specialize in working with survivors of individual or collective trauma and wrote a book about how writing can help heal from trauma (We Heal From Memory, 2000). I also am successful in helping academics and teachers re-commit to their creative projects and maintain a work-life balance. I have a particular affinity for working with mothers who want to use writing as a way of restoring their sense of self-worth and joy.

 

Individual Services:

Co-Creating is unique in that when I ask clients to journal, meditate, or do a creative activity, I also create and participate. It is this collective sense of working together in a safe and sacred space that makes my coaching unique.
