Whether you're just starting out in the arts or already a seasoned painter, writer or performer, you're likely grappling with lack of time, survival issues, creative blocks or other concerns - on top of everything else that life throws at you. A creativity coach can help you work through these obstacles in pursuit of a meaningful, productive life in the arts.

I'm offering free creativity coaching sessions this fall, via email or by phone, as part of my certification training through the Creativity Coaching Association. You can choose what we focus on, with the option of including any of the topics listed below.
