We are dancing
through each other as doorways.

Why do I think connecting with your creativity is so important?
Creativity is a powerful tool for self-care. It allows us to discover hidden parts of ourselves. It opens the door to inner voices and wisdom that we cannot access through our intellect alone.
Creativity helps you be your best self. It helps reenergize your passion for how you live your days. Exploring yourself through creativity brings a fullness, with color and texture and depth, to your view of the world.
Creativity is a key problem-solving tool. Wielding creative tools at obstacles opens up possibilities and angles that help you move quickly and confidently through sticky situations.
Creativity helps you find clarity. Opening up creative channels uncovers information and answers you already hold inside.
Creativity builds confidence. It's true! There's science to prove it!
Creativity makes us happier. Engaging in creative activity brings peace, contentment, and increases our happiness. And I promise, it's really fun! And don't we all want that?
Creativity nurtures innovation. When you nurture your creativity, you become open to all sorts of new ideas and perspectives. This will serve you at work, in your relationships and parenting, and in how you engage with your world.
If you are ready embrace your creative self, let's schedule a call to see the best way for us to work together. Or we can just talk about creativity! I love that too!
Work with Me
Working with a creative coach feels like having a good friend by your side to listen, guide, support, and yes, challenge when needed. Coaching is not therapy, but sometimes feelings arise that may surprise you. Sometimes we talk through a new obstacle, and sometimes we plan your next steps in a project. Often I ask you to do thoughtful or creative exercises to help provide clarity or build accountability.
