Life, Meaning & Creativity Coaching
With her passion for the creative process and compassion for her clients, Laurie coaches from her heart. Her intuitive and nurturing spirit guided my creative journey when I was stalled at a difficult life transition. Laurie held my creative dream in a safe place and helped me envision a path from pause to possibility. Her laughter, encouragement, wise tools and playful tips opened for me a whole new approach to creativity. She changed my life. I will always be grateful and curious: How exactly did she do that?

For those seeking to live a life that’s more centered, focused, and inspired, Laurie is an excellent personal guide and coach. While Laurie employs wonderful techniques from Byron Katie and Martha Beck, her greatest gift is her intuitive wisdom. I still have no idea just how she was able to create the perfect guided meditations and activities for me, or how she would know just the right thing to say to work with my energies and needs. Ultimately, I think it’s just proof that Laurie is on the perfect path, and offers one of the most caring and insightful coaching services available.

Laurie has helped me access my creativity in arenas I have not experienced before. The way we live is in itself a creative act. Laurie recognizes that and inspires the AHA’s that create change. She helped me take the steps I needed to move through feeling blocked and stuck. She is funny, wise and an awesome creativity coach!!! Give yourself a gift and sign up for a few sessions to rev up your joy and delight!”

Each coaching session with Laurie is a work of art. She is funny, compassionate, intuitive and courageous. No issue is off the table. Laurie offers imaginative and personalized guided meditations and asks just the right questions to lead me to those delightful Aha moments of insight and clarity. Long after a session has ended, I realize how deep and transformative her coaching really is. A pivotal moment in the coaching session in real life translates into new energy, positive patterns of thought and joyful ways of being in my body and in the world.
Although it’s been many weeks since I had my dream analysis with Laurie, I find myself coming back to it again and again. The dream I shared with her was complex, but Laurie didn’t seem at all daunted. She patiently walked me through each step of the process, encouraging me to let go of any rational thought about my dream and be free with my associations. It was a powerful and moving experience, and that was before I received Laurie’s analysis! The actual analysis was thorough and illuminating, and offered a profound understanding well beyond anything I imagined before we began. As a result, I have thought a lot about the lessons of this dream and am working to apply them to my waking life. Laurie is a gifted listener with a wonderful sense of playfulness and humor. She is sensitive, empathetic and extraordinarily kind. Although we’ve never met in person, I felt that I could share anything with her (even the depths of my subconscious in this crazy dream I had). I look forward to working with her again.
