Coaching with Creativity

I help people get in touch with the inner self by combining life tools and creativity. Examples include self-portrait, gratitude spiral and body compass. But instead of black and white worksheets, I help clients bring the tools to life through color, images and words.  The Kaleido Journaling Gallery showcases three tools in action.


This is one of my favorite coaching tools because it reminds us of our strengths and boosts our self-esteem. This can be a real game changer when you need encouragement to make changes and/or chase your dreams. I walk participants through a process that helps them identify their strengths. Then we take the time to create our portraits. Oh, and just so you know, the three women who created these portraits are incredible artist so don’t go judging yourself by thinking you can’t draw your portrait. You can. I will help you.

Gratitude Spiral

Being grateful is the quickest way to becoming joyful. As human beings we can really focus on what’s going wrong in lives. This coaching exercise helps us focus on what’s going right in our lives. AND that is good for our emotional well-being. By creating a visual image of gratitude, we become more aware and can more easily connect to our joy and happiness.

Body Compass

This is a fantastic exercise that can help us get unstuck and find direction. Dancer Martha Graham said that the body never lies. Our bodies have a lot of information to share with us if we just listen. This exercise allows us to tune into bodies and create a visual body compass map for future use.

Colorful Discovery


Creative Life Tools

Working with color, images and words helps us dive deep into our belief system and uncover what we need in order to heal the mind, body and spirit.
