Skillfully navigating uncharted territories


Through leading-edge one-on-one coaching, I work with creatives, artists and innovators longing to more skillfully navigate the places where their work, life and creativity meet.

I support them as they move beyond the stories that hold them back from creating what they're most longing for, and develop the practical capacities that allow them to make things happen in their creative, personal or professional lives in ways that are more truthful, effective and sustainable over time.
