Felicia 1I have always loved words and ideas, and the creative and mysterious process of writing. For me it is an ever-changing continuum, from my own writing to helping clients who want personal and professional insight and clarity, or practical help with writing and other projects.

From writing pieces for publication to working with clients one-on-one and in small groups, writing can be a simple yet powerful tool for change and transformation, one word at a time.
