Are you someone who feels uncomfortable talking about themselves, but who often hears they have an important and inspiring story to tell? Do you feel passionate about a topic but don’t know where to start or finds the idea of writing a book overwhelming?

Whether you have written all your life or are just embarking on your writing journey, I take joy in helping others not only hone their craft to tell their story in the best way possible, but also hold space for the emotions that inevitably arise when confronting the past and navigating how to speak of it when it can impact loved ones in the present.

It is your birthright to tell your story.

My approach to writing sees this art as a modality for healing. With eclectic tastes and outré interests mixed with a nearly unrivaled enthusiasm for living language and the written word, I strive to inspire writers from all backgrounds to stay true to their artistic journey and their authentic voice. A naturally disciplined writer with a passion for storytelling, I thrive on supporting others courageous enough to bring their experiences and ideas to the page — then the world. My approach is holistic, involving things that fall outside the traditional writing world, enabling me to provide support ranging from generating fresh work to fine-tuning polished drafts to querying agents and getting published, while also helping writers process their experiences and integrate them on the page so that they can remain focused and on track.

Transforming memory onto the page is a great act of service to others.

Writing a book has all the elements of the birth cycle: conception, gestation, check-ups, research, breathing, nausea, and delivery. The process is the same and yet the experience is different for everyone, for every book. From the initial stages to the end game, I will support you throughout the life of your project.
