I help creatives take aligned action with their heart's truest desires by clearing emotional and creative blocks.

Instead of always feeling stuck, scattered, and unfocused (and then feeling shameful for not getting anywhere), I encourage my clients to step into creative flow, ease and confidence.


They are challenged to change how they see the world and to do things they might be uncomfortable with, taking them to that creative edge, where change happens, helping them stretch out of their day-to-day comfort zone, so that they could create meaningful work in the world. 

My clients are held in a safe space where they could experience a complete shift in their relationship with themselves, with others, and the world.


I honor my clients' growth for courage, love, freedom and full self-expression and help them access new perceptions about how to create extraordinary lives as life artists, while creating lasting change in belief, behavior, and identity, and gaining emotional and behavioral flexibility that will help them experience more freedom and success.


Methods of Working:

Phone, In-person, and Online


I offer Transformational Life + Business Coaching sessions for Creative Professionals at the Mastery Level to help them gain deeper clarity with their life + soul's purpose while taking aligned action toward success. I encourage my clients to find creative flow through creative rituals, through art-making itself, using creativity as a form of transformation.

Training and Experience:I've got a track record of success with 20+ years of leadership experience as an educator and nearly 20 years of experience as a creative entrepreneur. I'm multi-passionate, great at pausing, listening, and seeing the greatness and potential in people. Having both qualities as an intuitive empath and strong leader, I'm able to connect with people compassionately in a deep, meaningful way and also allow room for expansive growth (personal, professional, and spiritual) in an encouraging way.


I’ve had experience coaching a variety of creative professionals, which include, designers, visual artists, performing artists, writers, professors, entrepreneurs, coaches, healers, and innovators, and they have experienced everything from gaining clarity and alignment with major life and career transitions to establishing creative flow and inspiration in their daily lives.

Additional Comments:

Loving all things to do with art, nature, and everything beautiful (including the remarkable people who surround me), and as I mature through the years as an artist of life, wisdom has taught me that sharing my passion for creativity empowers others to tap into a world of creative thinking that promotes self-growth within their own hearts, minds, and souls. I'd like to explore and share the endless sources of inspiration, from this wide world we live, with you. I welcome you to join me in this journey.
