What Clients Say

"Juliet listens very deeply. In both her group and private sessions she cultivates an atmosphere for one to do their own deep inner listening, which is the heart of a good writing practice. Juliet's warmth and intuition will help a timid writer find their story and their voice. Juliet's depth, wisdom, and knowledge of myth and storytelling will help a confident writer to craft their best story yet.

I am writing a memoir and Juliet has helped me recognize my story and its fundamental parts: the crisis, struggle, and transformation. Juliet has a great respect for the journey of the writer, so whether I have shown her my roughest draft or something more polished, she always encourages the act of continuing to write.


Her passion about storytelling emboldens you -- you can't quit now, you are on a mission. Her feedback for my work is global. She is very knowledgeable on the topics of myth, storytelling, psychology, spirituality, feminism, and intuition, and she weaves all these in. I highly recommend Juliet's guidance on your own journey as a writer." -- Angela O.



"Working with Juliet is a transformative experience: she truly has the ability to help you get your hands into the oracular entrails of your own personal narrative. I can't overstate how our work together jump started my creative process and changed my life, in just a matter of weeks." -- Stacey E.
   
       
Understanding Creative People
More than ever before, our world needs people who are alive and inspired, who have new visions, new ideas for implementing them, and new energy. However, as much as corporations, classrooms, and clinical centers say they want to support creativity, they usually end up stifling it.

For one thing, creative people are often misunderstood as undisciplined, or misdiagnosed as having a personality disorder, when in fact they are absolutely healthy within a creative norm, and capable of brilliant work when recognized, nurtured, and supported in developing their expressive capacities.

In Creativity: Flow and the Psychology of Discovery and Invention, creativity scholar Mihaly Csikszentmilhalyi developed a generic description of the creative personality. It gives teachers, therapists, coaches, managers, and co-workers an expanded framework for working with people driven by internal passions, visions, and values.

Csikszentmilhalyi wrote, “If there is one word that makes creative people different from others, it is the word complexity. Instead of being an individual, they are a multitude. Like the color white that includes all colors, they tend to bring together the entire range of human possibilities within themselves. Creativity allows for paradox, light, shadow, inconsistency, even chaos –and creative people experience both extremes with equal intensity.”
