your joy matters to me.

Icon of smiling face, laughing with tears.

My greatest joy in life is helping others to find their joy.

I want to help you thrive.

The Joy of writing your story.

You can experience the joy of writing an essay that satisfies you— and this 4-week workshop will help you do it. 

If you’re a writer, you need readers and editors who’ll listen intently, then tell you the truth about what needs cutting and where you need to be more honest. In this 4-week online workshop, I’ll be your teacher, editor, and reader. You’ll work within a community of other people dedicated to this writing process. We’ll encourage you to write with honesty, bravery, and multiple drafts.

You’ll write your story. 

Do you have a hard time allowing joy in your life? Let’s discover the solutions together.

You deserve someone who understands you. When you commit to a one-on-one coaching relationship, you’re making the choice to invest in yourself. If you choose to work with me, you’ll have a reliable guide on the path toward joy.

Sign up for Finding Your Joy

A newsletter for people who want to find more joy. 

If you subscribe — at only $5 a month — you’ll receive a weekly essay from me, about a time in my life that I felt doubt, worry, and fear, then came through that time to find more joy.  

I also offer weekly profiles in joy — a little portrait of people who’ve come through hard places to find joy. Most of them are my neighbors on Vashon Island. (That’s Maxcianna on the right. You can read her profile here.)

Remember — you’re not alone.
