You have a deep creative wisdom within that’s always been present. It has the capacity to guide you to what truly matters. 

But maybe your relationship with it is a bit strained these days and you feel cut off from its flow.

And yet, it’s there. It always will be. Patiently waiting for you to find your way back to it.

The thing is, you’re not quite sure how to find your way back. You’ve probably tried: read books, taken courses, listened to podcasts, answered questions, and made the vision boards, lists and plans.

Still, something’s missing. And you’re tired of losing time. Maybe you even wonder sometimes if the life that you yearn for is simply a mirage.

What I most want to tell you is this: it’s not a mirage and it truly is within you.

And yes, you can have a better relationship with your wise, creative self.

What gets in the way of a better relationship with your wise, creative self?

Layers of expectation, assumption and prediction about how things should be.

The daily barrage of questions, comparisons and unsolicited advice.

Your beliefs, patterns and influences, built up over time.

Surface chatter. Distractions. A world that is too much with us.

Fatigue. Overwhelm. Self-criticism. Over-work. Under-play. Over-thinking.

So here’s what we’ll do: We’ll circle up, you and me, because a circle of two women is a powerful change agent.

And we’ll step away from all that surface chatter and noise.

Then we’ll dive into an exploration of what truly matters to you and you alone.

Maybe that’s moving towards being kinder to yourself rather than hard on yourself. Or increasing career fulfillment and decreasing stress. Or happier relationships and less feeling checked-out. Or more room in your day for creativity, ease and self-nurturing.

Or, just generally more meaningful experiences and less going-through-the-motions.

Whatever it is for you, we’ll create a safe container for aha moments, epiphanies, reflection, insight and meaningful action.

Because you’re unique, we won’t take a cookie-cutter approach.

This isn’t like some coaching programs, with specific steps that are laid out ahead of time. You’re unique and can’t be boxed in like that. You deserve a rich, deeply personal experience that’s designed just for you.

That said, I’ll bring a full-to-the-brim treasure chest of ideas and resources that will help you cultivate your relationship with your deep creative wisdom.

  • Dig deep into values, with a whole new approach (probably like you’ve never done before) and learn to translate the mysterious and often conflicting language of values.
  • Call on imagery, symbol, color and body wisdom to open the conduit between head and heart.
  • Excavate the inner wisdom and deep desire within your stories, dreams and daydreams.
  • Work with proven psychological tools like mindfulness, acceptance and dialectics.

What happens when you find your way back to your deep creative wisdom?

  • You move away from doubt and towards trust, feeling energized, confident and resilient.
  • You get better at naming (and satisfying) your needs in the areas of your life that feel wanting.
  • You see clearly what you can change, what you need to accept and what you can let go.
  • You begin to live in harmony with your deep creative wisdom, incorporating more and more of what truly matters to you.
  • You take delight in how much you already know about how to create a life that’s satisfying to you and you alone.

Quite simply, I’m here to help you fashion a beautiful, enduring relationship with your deepest knowing.

  • Come as you are and I’ll meet you right there. There’s no expectation that you’ve arrived at a certain place to do this work.
  • I trust with absolute certainty that during our time together your deep creative wisdom will partner with mine and it will be a beautiful thing to behold.
  • You can let your guard down: laugh, cry, whine, get mad, drop the f-bomb, tell me your secrets.
  • I believe that compassionate confrontation leads to insight, transformation and change. But I don’t believe in holding your feet to the fire or kicking your ass.
  • I’m well-trained, certified and licensed. I’ve logged over 10,000 hours of 1:1 sessions as well as many hours of group work and teaching. I’m grateful every day for how this grounds my work.

Next Steps

Creative Wisdom Coaching sessions are $110. Something magical happens when you do 12 sessions (completed within six months or less). However, some clients need fewer sessions, focused on a specific issue.

I work with coaching clients mostly by phone but also in my offices in Sacramento and Santa Rosa.
