I help artists escape their crippling self-doubt and become confident writers.
But why on earth should you trust me?
Trust me because I’ve done so much damn time in self-doubt land myself.
When I first started blogging I was already a professional magazine journalist yet I was so scared to be vulnerable on the page that I didn’t put my name on my own posts.
A friend had to talk me into it.
Now? Well, you can’t pry me off my blog’s writing stage. 🙂
I know how scary it is to be real in writing.
But I also know ways you can conquer that fear that holds you back.
You’re intelligent and creative.
You have what it takes.
You can use your own words to transform your art, life, and business in 2020.
Let’s get you the information and affirmation you need to access the wealth of wisdom and creativity you have within.
“It’s a scary thing to publish an online journal, especially one that’s outside of the box. One hour with Thea not only vanquished my fears but gave me the tools and inspiration I needed.
I received a huge treasure chest actionable information to support my efforts.
What a gift to work with this amazing woman.”

Writing Coaching For Artists: *Keeping it Real Section
There’s no magic pill that turns anyone into a good writer overnight.
Writing is re-writing. Period.
My goal is to give creatives like you the feedback you need to strengthen your unique writing voice and build your own permanent, reliable, internal writing guidance system.
And we do that each time we connect.
But to truly make your art writing shine you have to do be willing to do two things on your own:
1. Spend a lot of time tinkering with what you’ve already written.
2. Take a chance on being vulnerable on the page.
If you can love yourself enough to commit to learning how to go about doing those two things; I believe lush, new, vibrant worlds will open up for you.
You’ll no longer dread writing.
In fact, in the future, it may be tough for you to pick which great, meaningful idea you get to write about next.
But all that swell stuff can’t start happening unless you say;
‘Damn it, I’m worth it,’ and sign up for the package that’s right for you.
