Outline Your Memoir is a FREE 2 hour workshop. I’d love to have you join in!
Memoir writing = personal transformation.
Because you get to choose the stories that define you.
I support creative, courageous, sensitive women + non-binary people in reclaiming their brilliance, vibrancy and strength via a transformation memoir-writing process called The Art of Personal Mythmaking.
We root down in order to rise up.
This is an uncommon process, joyful, deep and connected.

This is what I believe:
We reclaim ourselves when we shed unwanted restrictions and layers of conditioning.
We reclaim our wholeheartedness when we embrace our life stories, reconnect with our bodies and tap into our creativity.
We reclaim our vibrancy when we root down and build a strong foundation of trust in ourselves.
Without shying away from the difficult, the painful or the grief-ridden, I help people heal from the stories they have about themselves and their bodies.
To heal from the stories their cultures impose on them.
To get spacious enough for growth, wholeness, joy and peace. To celebrate the shape of their lives.
Because when we heal and transform ourselves, we benefit everyone linked to us. Our healing supports the growth of others.
This work is a multi-layered gift. When we reclaim ourselves, we trust ourselves.
Self-trust comes from self-knowledge.
Trust that is cultivated by knowing our lineage, both cultural and ancestral, and how it roots us.
Trust that arises from knowing our bodies and how they support, guide and teach us.
Trust that comes from tuning into our inner knowing and acting on that guidance.
We heal and transform when we work with our personal mythologies instead of against them.
We shine when we drop the layers, restrictions and masks, and embody the wholeness that has always been within, waiting to be reclaimed.
Here’s how you can work with me:
Heal and transform while getting the first draft of your memoir written with ease.
Four months to explore your culture, your family, your relationship to your body, and to write creatively. In community.
Work with me one-on-one. These sessions are like a coaching, healing and creative advising service, all in one.
This is self-reclamation work, to assist you in reclaiming your brilliance, worthiness and vitality so you can truly thrive in the world without sacrificing yourself.
Step away from the routines and overwhelm of your life. Retreat with one-on-one healing support and guidance. Return with a clear and rested sense of purpose and alignment.
Private retreats are self-reclamation work, dedicated to the transformative process, in all of it’s deep, gorgeous, glorious potential.
Some more ways you can work with me:
I believe that working with grief and anger are foundational to healing, and I always integrate it into our work together. You can access two of my self-directed ecourses here: Honouring Your Grief & Honouring Your Anger.
You can commission your own Devotional Painting here.
I also offer in-person hands-on healing – I’m a trauma-informed certified Hellerwork Structural Integration Practitioner. If you’re in my area (Okanagan Valley, Canada), or you want to bring me to you, click here to get in touch and book a session.
