Facilitating Psychological Growth
and Creative Advancement

“Not everything that is faced can be changed, but nothing can be changed until it’s faced” – James Baldwin

“A word after a word after a word is power.” – Margaret Atwood

“If I can stop one heart from breaking”

by Emily Dickinson

If I can stop one heart from breaking,

I shall not live in vain;

If I can ease one life the aching,

Or cool one pain,

Or help one fainting robin

Unto his nest again,

I shall not live in vain.


In a mentoring forum, I will support and encourage your capacities to independently grow and develop the skills you are wishing to build. We will define your goals and limitations together in order to build a working alliance around what you wish to achieve.

Reasonable Fees and Mentoring Packages Available.


Coaching sessions will offer you an opportunity to work through your anxiety and fears about success and failure, as well as creative blocks that impede productivity and creative advancement, including motivation problems, organizational habits and other mind-body issues core to optimal functioning.

Reasonable Fees and Coaching Packages Available.


While it is important to listen and understand what is being said, I also want to give you something to use in each session—a tool, tip, insight, and sometimes a homework assignment, including journaling or trying something new. I integrate meditation into our work when beneficial.

Limited Openings Available.
