Let’s create a safe space for radical imagination
HI, I’M SUSIE.
Poet. Writer. Singer-Songwriter. Educator. Mom to two. Life-long learner. Creative mind-body coach.
As a coach, I feel honored to work with artists and writers. The artistic process fascinates me. I know all about the struggles—and the joys—of maintaining a creative practice day in and day out. Together, we can work through barriers to productivity, set realistic habits and goals, and banish limiting beliefs so you can live your most fulfilled creative life.
I have a special place in my heart for working artist parents!
I have a certificate in Mind-Body Coaching from The Embody Lab and a Master of Fine Arts in Creative Writing from the University of Massachusetts. I teach at Academy of Art University and Left Margin Lit, and coach for Conceive. My own personal journey through meditation, Yoga, and Pilates informs my work every day. I love learning about the science of habit-forming, sharing creative prompts, and reading everything I can get my hands on (particularly literary fiction, memoirs, poetry, and, lately, murder mysteries).
Work with Me
Mind-body coaching can unlock patterns that reside not only in the mind but deep in the tissues. As a creative mind-body coach, I help writers and artists move forward with purpose so they can live at their most fulfilled. We might spend a session working somatically, brainstorming, in creative practice, or organizing around concrete intentions. My goal is to provide you with a safe space for radical imagination.
In addition to coaching, I teach creative writing around the Bay Area and online.

Friends, here's what the Spring Equinox looks like here in Northern California. I got so excited about the torrential rains predicted last Saturday, a gig-postponing, movie-afternoon kind of rain. Instead, it sprinkled for an hour. Climate change and drought, folks,...
It would take a thousand photos to really explain a year of Covid. We had one slideshow. New Year's Eve, 2021. We enjoyed a Covid-style masked backyard cocktail with friends and came home for a decadent fondue dinner just the four of us. I'd thrown the photos together...
