Monthly and package rates available.

Each session is tailored to you, based on your experience and goals. You will be supported to stand in your personal power and discover your authentic voice that is uniquely yours. We do this in several ways:

Songwriting (or any creative writing or journaling) is a therapeutic release of energy and cathartic experience to know yourself better, find your authentic voice, and courageously express yourself in new ways. Learn or practice the fundamentals of songwriting including tools like patterns and phrasing.

Voice Work Expressing yourself through the voice is another way to express yourself fully and stand in your personal power. Practicing and mastering vocal exercises regularly is a therapeutic release and expression of yourself, relieves blocked energy in the body and builds confidence to show up as your authentic self.

Project-Specific For artists and songwriters that are gearing up to release a body of work (an album) starting from scratch, or need a sounding-board to make sure their songs are as succinct and melodically strong as possible.
