A creative life is a life well lived


wake up to each day with excitement & wonder

Are you running in a dozen directions? Do you often feel like there's nothing left over for your creative work? When distanced from your art, do you feel unhappy or resentful? When you take time for creativity, do you feel guilty, pressured, or unfocused? If yes, there's good news: it doesn't have to be that way.

I help clients make life-design choices that support their values and creative intentions. It's so easy to find yourself sucked into the vortex of daily life, a million miles away from your last creative expression. You know what's important; you just need a helping hand getting back to what feels right.

I especially enjoy working with creatives who are parents. With a lifetime of dedication to the arts and five children of my own, I understand the challenges of maintaining a creative identity — and career — while raising a family. I know what it's like to weep in the frozen food aisle because your kids are screaming for popsicles and you're sleep-deprived, haven't done anything creative in months, and all you really want is to sit down for 20 minutes and write a poem. (Well, maybe after taking a nap.) I get it, and I can help.

Creativity cannot be separated from life itself. That's why my approach to creativity coaching is holistic. We’ll work together to ensure that all of the pieces of your life are working symbiotically to support your greatest intentions.

And the calendar

There are 168 hours in a week. No matter who you are, where you live, or what language you speak, that's your allotment.


Time is our most precious non-renewable resource. When it's gone, we can't get it back. By identifying where you want to be and what you want to be doing in the long term, we work together to design your creative compass.


We all know that "someday" is not a day of the week. By living with intention and clarity, you are better able to focus on process while working toward your creative goals. A creative compass helps you navigate the inevitable elements of change and challenge.


If you don't enjoy the journey, the destination can only bring superficial satisfaction.
