I help writers who want to grow the seeds of rough drafts into finished works of art and are tired of the inner critic getting in the way. I believe that in order to find our most authentic voice and help our writing become its best self, we need a mixture of craft and compassion.
I bring a contemplative lens to my teaching and one-on-one mentoring, drawn from nearly twenty years of meditation experience and a lifetime of creative writing.
Whether you need support revising a single piece, completing a manuscript, or just getting words on the page, I create a compassionate structure that helps you practice kindness toward yourself while giving you the practical tools you need to make your writing shine.
In my classes, I create a welcoming, compassionate community that fosters student engagement, growth, and connection. You can expect to learn craft tools, generate fresh new work, and engage in the ongoing practice of making friends with your mind.
