I help people organize their physical and mental clutter so that they can reclaim their creative space. I am a Creativity Advocate. I am an artist, an organizer, a health coach and an energy worker.  My services include in-home professional organizing, private health coaching,  Reiki, custom artwork or a combination of all of these.

After receiving my MFA from Rhode Island School of Design, I went on to obtain my Health Coaching Certification from the Health Coach Institute. Additionally, I have received the status of “Professional Organizer” through training from the National Association of Professional Organizers and have received my Reiki Master Certification through Daisy Thompson.

What I do

The need for authentic connection is the most important emotional need we have as humans. Creative people have a profound potential to connect authentically with others, and I assist them along the way. When our sense of authentic connection is threatened, we cannot fully express ourselves, our energy is depleted, and it can be detrimental to our health. I have a deep interest in getting to the root of an issue, not to just treat the symptoms.

Through my services, I help others address the various stresses in their lives: health, relationships, finances, purpose and connection to something greater, so that they can free up their mind to be creative. When we are living in a state of stress, anger, fear disease, we are living in “Survival Mode”. When we are living in a state of balance, love, joy and health, we are living in “Creative Mode”. In Survival Mode we have limited possibilities. In Creative Mode, we have many possibilities.

Why I do what I do

I am enamored with the reciprocal benefits of health and creativity. Attending to our physical, mental and emotional health allows us to be more creative. Expressing our creativity does wonder for all areas of our health. When we are not attending to our health, our creative capacity suffers greatly. When our health is low, we don’t have the physical energy to express ourselves. We don’t have the mental and emotional resilience to manifest new ideas, to think critically, and to receive constructive comments about our work.
