Master Coach & Teacher & Editor for Creatives



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

You know that Book / Podcast / Multimedia Project in you? Your Big Creative Calling? That Dream you may never realize because reasons?

(Up to and including: Your life / project isn’t working the way you’d like. Life / creative transitions. Healing to do. And let’s be honest, do you really have a story to tell? It’s complicated…)

Except you can’t reason this away. You’ve tried.

So now you’re ready to start. Ready to face the truth and admit what you know in your heart. 

You have Brilliance to share. 

So what’s your story?

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

Let’s see what’s there. I see you too.

How am I different from any other writing professional?

With me, you get a Story Mentor versed in narrative craft and expert guidance on wordsmithing. (If / when you’re ready.)

AND.

You get a Certified Master Coach as your compassionate witness. I won’t ever suggest there’s one true way to frame your story or publish your book / podcast / project.

(There honestly isn’t.)

You get a practiced translator / curator / writer who sees possibility everywhere.


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

I’ll pose questions that guide us to your story.

This is all about your experience. Your healing. Your wisdom. Your voice.

From there your work can radiate out. If you like.

Your stories don’t ever have to become public for us to explore them. They arise from a part of you that wants to be heard. Acknowledged. Together we’ll make sense of your words, so you can release them in your best way.

Connect to your brilliance. Take real steps forward.

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

I get it like nobody’s business.

Wondering if there’s a story, yes or no? We’ll put that question to rest.

As the published author of an award-winning memoir, now a podcaster, I’ve openly shared my life’s path. I know that journey firsthand.

This is personal.

Mine isn’t just any project, and neither is yours.

I know the emotions that come through us when we put our true selves on the page. And I know how to create sacred spaces, with writing habits to honor that process.


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

So. If this is speaking to you, let’s talk.

(More to the point, you talk. I’ll listen.)

Let’s talk.


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

Want to make a big impact, fast?

Understand your next steps now. We look at the big picture, find your sacred ground, and create a flexible framework.

That’s Creative Project Development.

This session stands on its own. Prepare to move forward with clarity on your story and style, themes and truelines.

Afterwards, share a piece of writing for my written and spoken review, plus additional focus. This one-time investment is worth it.


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.

Why Story Mentorship?

Consider it hybrid life coaching / creativity & writing collaboration with your personal developmental editor / master coach / curator.

Who adores playing with story and words.

Story Mentorship is for you if:

There’s a book in you. (Maybe something else. It’s unfolding.) This work will be tender. You don’t want to overthink it, but it matters. A lot.

You want to heal your stories and yourself as you write. This is your life. You want to partner with someone who gets that.

You want to build your wisdom and expertise at many levels so your beautiful book / podcast / artwork can shine.

You want a quality product but / and you’re willing to commit to your practice now. You could use gentle but spot-on expertise from someone who knows her craft, with wordsmithing service as needed.

Ultimately you want to write from your authentic voice — and share it for a higher purpose.

I’ll witness and reflect your truth, at your pace. Each month, I offer to review your writing at any stage. This personalized coaching comes with voice and text support between calls.


Amy is the Empress of ReVision.
Susan, Pastor & Fiction Writer

Story Mentorship is also for you if:

You’re making sense of life stories &/or seeking connection with your writing practice &/or processing big emotions that you hope to write about someday &/or you need space to share things in confidence, uncensored.

Lucky for you, I’m an excellent life coach.

I’m especially talking to you if:

You’re in a time of transition.
You’re healing family patterns and painful experiences.
You want a solid practice before you commit to a book.
You’re already writing; you simply want to process…

Regardless, you’ll receive ongoing, 1:1 guidance with a Courageous Wordsmith, published author and podcaster, Story Mentor, and Master Coach.

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.
