Why I created the Creative Catalyst Sessions
I know what its like to feel creatively held back and unfulfilled.
Twenty plus years ago the outer landscape of my life appeared ideal; I was married to my childhood sweetheart, lived in a beautiful historic home, enjoyed good friends and worked as an interior designer. However, my inner landscape revealed a much deeper truth. I'd suffered from a nagging low grade depression for years, along with self-doubt, frustration and feeling stuck.
I'd garnered two college degrees and a career, but somehow lacked a spark and enthusiasm for my life. Eventually my marriage crumbled. Heartbroken, jobless, and confused, I was faced with looking at my life as it truly was. I'd let myself believe that my creative dreams weren't worthy, practical or sustainable. That I should be content to work in a profession I was trained in, rather than what my heart was calling me to do. That a beautiful home, exotic vacations and a successful husband meant I would be secure and happy. Not true.
So began an enriching journey of personal growth including diving deep into human potential studies, jungian psychology, energy medicine, yoga, intuitive practices, writing, and Pilates. Most importantly, I stepped into my childhood dream of becoming a working artist. I studied painting and printmaking, and began exhibiting my art and developing my talent.
I went on to study with amazing coaches and healers who taught me the art of deep listening and mentoring from a heart centered place and how to meld my creative talents to support others. Now I'm able to bring my training, experience, as well as creative and practical approaches to help others who are ready to recognize their unique potential and impact. And that's why I feel so passionate to share what I've learned with you.
