I’m grateful to work with such distinguished clients, whether as a writer, editor or coach.

They inspire me to learn and grow continuously, and to keep dreaming, even when I’m awake.

“I can’t express how much I appreciated the time you took to assist me in the next step in making a dream come true. You also woke me up to many more wonderful things that can be created—my wheels are turning after years of rust. You are very dear. What a wonderful creative guide you have been through this overwhelming process!”

“I came in with an idea/storyline I’ve had for eight years and have only succeeded in overwhelming myself and getting bogged down in fear, negative self-talk and confusion with frustration. I now am crystal clear on what I want to do, what I need to do and I have a plan now. Rebecca was informative, interesting, to the point, and FUN! She gave me the confidence to be creative and enjoy the process.”
Sandy Smedstad, CMT
