Testimonials

Before I started working with Lauren, I had no confidence in myself as a writer. I struggled with self-doubt and fear and would go for weeks, sometimes months, without writing.

Within the first week of working with her, she had identified one of my major stumbling blocks, which was namely a lack of trust: lack of trust in myself as a writer, lack of trust in the writing process and in my characters.

Her intuitive, encouraging, and gentle coaching style has helped me gain confidence in myself, my abilities, and my stories. She’s helped me find joy in writing again, and there isn’t a day that goes by that I am not thankful to have her in my corner. I honestly can’t imagine being on this journey without her.

I’m so glad I found Lauren. As a writer and fellow INFJ, I feel like we speak the same language. I didn’t want to join a writing group or go to therapy to deal with my writing angst, I just wanted one person to talk to, one objective person who would help me find my way and encourage me along with this project. Lauren’s coaching is gentle, intuitive, and experience-based. Just what I needed!

I started working with Lauren about a year ago, and the experience has been overwhelmingly positive. Initially, I hoped her coaching would help me transition from my years as a freelance journalist into a full-time novelist, but it’s turned out to be much more than that. Not only have I discovered so much more about myself as a fiction writer, but many of the goals I had when we started working together have also grown and evolved. And I just can’t say enough good things about her as a motivating influence – she offers constructive advice, is always ready to read my stuff, and gives creative tips on how and where to find an audience for my work. She’s fantastic!

Lauren has been exactly what I needed to guide me through the book writing process. She makes putting a book together a manageable undertaking. She is incredibly supportive and encouraging and often has creative suggestions regarding book organization and writing career development. She knows intuitively what to do and say to motivate me. Prior to working with Lauren my book project constantly got put on the back burner but I’ve now made satisfying and tangible progress.
