Creative people come to Cathy for creative coaching!

About Cathy

Joel Peterson Photography

The world needs more creativity. I need to be more creative. You need to be more creative. We all need to use our creative gifts; we received them for a reason. When we all use our creative gifts, the world is a better place; we are happier and more satisfied and that spills over into every other aspect of our lives and influences those around us in our homes, workplaces, and communities.

My curiosity and interest in personal development led me to life coaching and, naturally, I chose a creative coaching modality. It most excites me to coach creative people (and we're all creative!) to make time and space in their lives to get their creative work done. Creative work is sacred work, and I consider it an honor to help you do your sacred work.

Whether you take advantage of my free resources, such as blog articles and ebooklets, or take a class with me or sign up for one-on-one coaching, I hope what I'm doing here will inspire you to do more creative work.

That is my mission and my passion, to make the world a more creative place.

Explore your depths of creativity, expression, and what your personal brand is of each. You have something amazing to share with the world. Do you creative work. Go deeper.

"I try to practice yoga, meditation, and writing every day. Some days I also practice procrastination, avoidance, and insecurity. I don't want to practice those things, but they creep up on me regardless, so it's important to pay attention to the things you're practicing so that you can cultivate the positives and weed-out the negatives."
