Creativity is an inherent, accessible experience that connects to the most profound meanings of life. I have a deep belief in the transformative energy of the creative process and a trust in the individual capacity to engage with this energy.

I acknowledge and meet each person where they are, and help you to uncover the inner strengths and creativity that you may not be able to access on your own.
Together we engage in transformative processes that explore the meaning and purpose of your creativity, generate inspiration, navigate challenges, and establish achievable personal and professional goals.

Methods of Working:

I work with clients by phone, in-person, and through email and other on-line resources.



As a CCA certified creativity coach I can help you effectively meet the challenges of a creative life. I specialize in working with individuals from all creative fields in the areas of creative process and practice, and professional development.

In addition, my engagement with a life-long creative practice and my career as an exhibiting artist give me an in-depth understanding of the beauty and challenges of maintaining a fulfilling life centered in the arts.
