Self-discovery and creativity go hand in hand. Explore yourself. Express what you find.
I write books that explore the joys and pains of womanhood, enlightenment, and self-exploration. So far, I've written a free verse memoir about heartbreak and healing, a book of essays for quiet women who want to be heard, and a self-discovery workbook that inspires self-reflection and personal growth.
I help women find, accept and express their truths through writing. My guidance enables self-acceptance and creative courage so connections can be made, stories can be told and depth can be celebrated.
PRESENTATIONS AND WORKSHOPS
My workshops are heart opening. We gather, we vibe, and we explore self-discovery and writing techniques that release more uninhibited thought and expression. As a speaker, I cover topics related to creativity, self-discovery and emotional health.
