Philosophy:

Creativity is a way of life. While I work well with all types of artists, I believe that we’re all creative in many ways. Artists need to express their creative side, whether they’re working as artists or as lawyers, managers, teachers, etc. And lawyers, managers and teachers can be very creative in the way they approach their lives and careers.

 

Methods of Working:

Phone or in-person. Since I work by phone, I can work with clients anywhere in the U.S. and internationally. My local clients often meet me in person and then switch to phone sessions as we continue our coaching relationship.

 

Specializations:

• Bringing more creativity into your life through writing, art, music, etc
• Navigating a creative career path
• Being more successful in your artistic career 
• Fitting creative expression into a busy life
• Creatively finding a new career path
• Writing and self-publishing your book

 

Individual Services:

I offer Life, Career and Creativity Coaching, either in person or by phone. For ongoing coaching, I begin with a Discovery Session that lasts 1 ¼ hours. We then switch to biweekly ½-hour phone sessions to support you in continuing to move forward with your goals.

For Career Coaching, I work with the Life Purpose Process, created by Fern Gorin and the Life Purpose Institute. This is a very creative way of exploring new career options or designing a business concept. For this type of coaching, I work with a 4-hour package, with additional sessions available if needed. 

I have also guided writers through the self-publishing process through ongoing coaching or scheduling consulting sessions as needed.
