Writing coaching that holds space for you, all of you, body, mind, and soul.

  

I believe that writing can be a spiritual practice. When you bring your whole self to the work, this process becomes transformative. The words you shape in turn shape you, if you allow them. I offer writing coaching that doesn't just engage your words but engages your whole self - body, mind, and soul.

This space is for all of you.

My Model

I offer a holistic approach to writing coaching that focuses on concept, manuscript, or book proposal development.

More About Me

My writing and publishing journey started early. After signing my first traditional book contract at 13, I went on to receive training in the areas of concept, manuscript, and proposal development from top writers and editors in the industry, including New York Times bestselling author Lysa Terkuerst and Tracie Miles, bestselling author and director of Compel Training (the writer's branch of Proverbs 31 Ministries).

My second book Stop Saying I'm Fine: Finding Stillness When Anxiety Screams was released with Leafwood Publishers in 2022. Currently, I am a contributing devotional writer at Proverbs 31 Ministries. Their daily devotionals reach millions around the globe.

In my 12 years of experience, I understand the angst of trying to navigate the writing and publishing world while simultaneously trying to navigate your own inner world of doubt, fear, and overwhelm. 

At its best, I believe that the coaching process is an expression of pastoral care.

I am in grad school, working towards my licensure in Clinical Mental Health Counseling. Using my educational training and writing experience, I want to help you feel confident and empowered to craft your truest, deepest writing in order to participate with God's redemptive work through your unique calling.
