"Thank you KMIMM for this booster shot of clarity and support. Your program helped me to successfully achieve a desired goal and allowed me to add gentle support to others. This win-win program is packed with effective tools, aha moments and compassionate interaction." - Julie Ann Lien, Owner of Wilderessence
" There's something about our group that gets my mind thinking about things I hadn't really thought of before. Our group has become the highlight of my week. I enjoy what we share and learn and everyone is so supportive and positive." - Mary C
"I showed up to the Purple Ink Cafe with an "ok, let me get through this so I can go back to hustling for ideas and make dinner" mindset, but left it completely altered. Being in the presence of other creative people seems to ignite the idea fires, and having a sympathetic group who understands your struggle helps you pull the solutions almost from midair. When I was in the Purple Ink Cafe with a few minutes of the group's attention, the ideas started flowing, without all the brain grinding I was sure I would need to do before joining the group. I was energized, enthused, amazed by the alchemy I'd just witnessed...it feels like friggin pixie dust. And the Purple Ink Cafe is just covered in it! Thank you Kathy & Mary for the wonderful group experience, and for reaffirming that this stuff does indeed work, beautifully." - Nicole Sinay Torres, Kaizen-Muse Creativity Coach, Artist
I am a creativity coach, or, as I prefer to think of it, a “personal freedom fighter”. I work with individuals and groups to to facilitate gradual lasting change in their lives. I ask questions; I listen. We break goals down to tiny steps and then we might break them down a little further. I provide a positive experience during a coaching session that doesn’t overwhelm and lets my clients feel witnessed and tended. This is particularly powerful for those desperate for personal and professional transition. It helps them open doors to possibilities in the second half of life.
My own personal freedom shows up as a writer, a blogger, a lover of the written word; a speaker and creativity and writing workshop leader. It allows me to be a Master Kaizen-Muse Creativity Coach, a Certified Modern Day Muse Group Facilitator, an Amherst Writers and Artist workshop leader and one of the KMI Master Minding Circle Founders and Facilitators.
As a Creative Strategy Coach I provide a safe and supportive space for you to explore, express, elevate and celebrate your creative process. Creative people need structure. They also need systems and strategies that are flexible and support the nonlinear aspect of the creative process. I offer 1:1 coaching packages, workshops both in person and online, KMI Master Minding Circles and KMI Master Mind Facilitator Training.
In my business persona I am a Master Kaizen-Muse Creativity Coach, a Master Kaizen-Creative NLP Practitioner. a Certified Modern Day Muse Group Facilitator and one of the KMI Master Minding Circle Founders and Facilitator.
I live in Parry Sound, ON along the rugged shore of Georgian Bay with my husband, three daughters and five quadrupeds.
