(No Matter What BS Publishing Throws at You)

Most of us get into writing because we love telling stories, but somewhere along the way—whether because book after book doesn’t get an agent, the book deal of your dreams ends up a lot smaller than you hoped, or negative reader reviews pour in for a book that holds your heart—we begin to lose that love.

Writing starts to feel like a chore.

We put painful expectations on ourselves.

We flirt with burnout because we feel too guilty to take (and enjoy) a real break.

It doesn’t have to be like this. 

Spend just four months coaching with me, and you'll transform your entire relationship with writing.

The 4 Months That Will 

Change Your Writing Life

Whether you're early in your writing journey, freshly agented, or a multi-published author, I can help you love what you do and get more done, WITHOUT burnout.

Love Writing Again

Learn to separate what's actually happening in your writing career from all the stories you tell about it.

Cultivate Self-Trust

Learn to trust your story instincts again - no more second-guessing yourself over editorial notes or which project to start next.

Make Peace with Deadlines

Set big goals without working yourself into the ground. Compassion and rest create better books than urgency and hustle.

Burnout-Proof Your Career

Set boundaries with publishing professionals, writing peers, and readers so you can find your perfect balance of connection and privacy.

I Need This!

I started out just like you.


Hi there! I'm Isabel, a traditionally published author and certified life coach.

When I started writing in 2012, I knew nothing about the publishing industry. A decade later, I'm a full-time author and life coach, helping other writers navigate the emotional ups and downs of a creative life.

Explore the Magic of Coaching  


The biggest obstacle standing between you and loving what you do is your own brain. So many writers struggles with thoughts like:

“I’m not good enough.”

“I don’t know what to do.”

“I’ll never get this.”

“I’m going to let everyone down.”

We skip from idea to idea and never finish. We reject ourselves before an agent can. We quit when we’re just getting started.

That’s why the 4-month program includes weekly coaching sessions.

We clean up the self-limiting lies in your brain. We find the real reason you’re struggling with story development, drafting, revision, or deciding which edits to take and which to let go.

It’s the secret sauce no one else is teaching. It is my absolute pleasure to share it with you.
