Ready to Explore the Magic of Coaching?  


I thought getting traditionally published would make all my issues with perfectionism, imposter syndrome, and feelings of writerly inadequacy go away.

Spoiler alert: It didn't.

I was constantly comparing myself to my peers, panicking about deadlines, and worrying that I'd irreparably fuck up my big chance.

Coaching is what saved my relationship with writing. It helped me find joy in it again, even though it was my job now instead of my escape.

I knew others needed this work, so I became a coach for published authors like you.

My combination of skills creates magic for my clients. 

If you're ready to create a writing career that you love and stop flirting with burnout, I can help.
