3 Ways to Work With Me


When you're stuck in a pattern and trying to untangle your mind, Amy is excellent at helping sort through whatever you're bringing to the table.
Jen, Music Teacher & Textile Artist

I needed to fine tune a piece of writing for my mom's memorial service. Amy took time to sit with me. She helped me shape my thoughts and feelings into a much shorter and far more eloquent piece.
Christi, Interior Designer


Amy has literally changed my life. She's an amazing teacher, question asker, meaning maker, story whisperer. Her point is, we all have stories.

Kiki, Editor, Podcaster & Multimedia Artist

Unpack your story.

You know that Book / Podcast / Multimedia Project in you?

You’re ready to move forward. And you don’t have to do it alone.

Amy's enthusiasm, wit, and freakishly perceptive antennae make her a perfect fit for this role.
Katherine, Neuropsychologist & Author

Do you feel daunted by the idea of sitting down to write, even though you feel called? 

(Especially because you feel it?)

Are you wondering what’s the real story?

Is it a book? Something else?

Maybe you know the story, but not how to frame it. Maybe you’ve started but could use guidance to move forward. Maybe you’re ready to revise.

No matter where you find yourself, together we can locate the threads. This is what I do.

I can tell when people have stories waiting inside them.

I detect glimmers of stories unfolding and taking shape.

I can show you what I see and help you give it voice.

There’s no better time to uncover that magic, book a session, and answer the call.



Amy gets creatives. She speaks our language and gets what we do. She quickly boiled down 30 years of experience into 3 points I can use in all my marketing. That's good wordsmithing!
Jennifer, Graphic Designer

Strengthen your writing.

Do you wonder what works in stories you’ve written and how to develop them?

I’ll show you what I see and ways to shape your narratives.


Amy has a beautiful way of highlighting what’s good while at the same time gently pointing me in the direction to grow as a writer.
Mary, Mind / Body / Nutrition Coach

With my handwritten notes and a video to talk you through them, I can show you how to improve a specific piece of work, identify patterns, and empower you as a creative writer going forward.

I’ll point out gems, potential places to unpack, and quick edits you could make right away.

Learn specific tools, resources, and habits for ongoing practice.

Meanwhile, questions I ask often resonate at many levels. You may surprise yourself with threads you discover as a result.

And by the way, if you’re wondering whether a story has promise, we’ll go there too.



I knew I would succeed in medical school and my story was my ticket to acceptance. Amy asked questions I didn't think were pertinent. They turned out to be critical to my purpose.
Eryn, Medical Doctor

Get ongoing support.

Are you healing, facing a major transition, or navigating a big creative project?

(Or all three?)

Here’s my most personalized package. How can I support you?


Amy is the real deal.
Jillian Rae, Musician & Songwriter

We’ll tailor a package for you.

Your work with me can include life coaching, creative process, story development, and / or editing services.

What would serve you best?

You get to choose.



Amy has a good heart for people. She knows when to push, when to back off, and when to change course. Her first priority is always what's the best way to work with this person, and what's going to help the most.
