NEW On-Going Group for Women Starting October 2 — details below
I help people who've let go of their creative dreams
reconnect with this spiritually-nourishing,
passionate, and fun part of themselves.
People often seek coaching because something's not quite right. Maybe you know exactly what that is: you want to return to an art form you used to love and need encouragement to start again. Or you always thought you'd be a good writer but have never really tried to write. Maybe you don't know what the problem is. Now that you've achieved your professional goals or the kids are grown, a kind of hollow feeling has appeared and you're not sure what it means.
Remember as a kid when you looked up, amazed at the call to dinner, thinking you'd only been painting or reading, building that model airplane, writing your short story, sewing, whatever, for half an hour but the whole afternoon had flown by? I help people find what they love to do, things that make them forget what time it is.
My particular coaching is based on 20 years of experience as a poet and writing teacher, 10 as a sweater designer, and all told, 35 as an entrepreneur. The poet's tools of close observation and intuitive thinking stand me in good stead as a coach. Skills for Change Coaching, the method in which I'm trained, builds intellectual, emotional, and physical skills to help clarify your values and expand your understanding of choice.
"Molly, I want to thank you for the presence and insight you offered again today. I have felt happy all day long. You have helped me so much to be able to allow that feeling in my life. I know that I always talk about the things that are difficult for me—for obvious reasons—and I wanted to share a bit of the beauty that you guide me to invite into my days."
"Without your help, I might have not seen this spring."
"You have helped me to be more honest with myself."
I work on the phone and in person:
sitting, standing, walking, and sometimes swimming.

I look forward to speaking with you!

Women's Lives Have Many Stages
At a certain point, a woman's attention naturally shifts from the intense work of child-rearing and career-building to focus more deeply inward and, for some, more broadly outward. This can be a time of great energy, but also great confusion and sadness. Come tell us what this transition is like for you, and learn to manage the rough spots with compassion and grace.
Together we'll explore some simple, effective mental and physical practices. We'll look at how the larger culture influences us all. We'll talk, listen, write, walk, share silence, and maybe swim together. We might even sing...
