Is This You?

You feel different.  

Feeling “different” might look like being introverted in a world that rewards extroverts, being a deep thinker in a superficial world, having a body shape that doesn’t match what’s considered normal, having an illness or disability that isn’t obvious when looking at you, or being neurodivergent or highly sensitive.

Because of this sense of being “different”:

Your relationships are unsatisfying.

Maybe you feel like you can’t fully be yourself in your relationships.  Or you long to feel more connected to the people and communities around you.  Maybe you’re lonely, wishing you could achieve greater closeness.  You feel like no one knows or understands the real you.  You might consider yourself quiet or shy and long for a way to express yourself.  

Or your work feels blah.

You feel disconnected with your role.  Perhaps your work doesn’t feel meaningful or engaging.  Maybe you’d like to be involved in work that feels important and impacts the world in some way.  Or feel inspired and passionate at work, instead of ending the day drained or with a persistent anxiousness.  Or at least enjoy engaging hobbies in your off time.

Or you generally sense something off in your life.

You aren’t sure why you feel empty or struggle to make sense of why you feel the way you do.  You want to create and live a purposeful life.  You might be individualistic and feel the need to create or find your own way because following a prescribed route hasn’t worked so far.  

Or you struggle to complete your stories or birth your creative projects.

You’re struggling with your memoir, novel, etc.  You know you want to tell your stories and be heard, but you…  Feel overwhelmed with too many ideas.  Schedule writing time but do everything but write.  Revise the same story over and over again and receive critiques but lose the drive to finish.  Have ideas in your head that you’re afraid to put on paper.  Start drafts you never get around to finishing.  Don’t have the skills necessary to further your writing.

My most successful clients share similar values with me.  We’ll be a great fit if:

You are creative, reflective, compassionate, curious, self-aware, and passionate about what’s important to you. 

Writing plays some role in your life, whether you journal or enjoy reading.  You value the creative process, your inner creator, and your own unique story.  You enjoy writing and going deep.

You know creating your life is a process and aren’t looking for a quick fix.  You’re committed to doing the inner work, and listening to your own inner truth.  You’re harnessing the courage to step into the power of your unique stories and telling stories that need to be told.
