Hi there! My name is Dallas, and I would love to be your writing coach.

  • Are you feeling scattered, distracted, overwhelmed, anxious, or bored?
  • Do you have a “passion project” that you continually find yourself putting on the back burner?
  • Have you always wanted to write a story, create a blog, publish a book, or pen your memoirs?
  • Do you feel drained or uninspired?

I can help! I firmly believe that all of us have burning truths inside that are aching to be told.

You possess the power to express yourself fully, in a way that makes you feel brave and whole and understood.

You can tap into the amazing creative energy that is already within you, just waiting to be nourished and unleashed.

You can use writing as a tool to better connect with others, to connect with your deepest self, and to move your life forward towards your biggest dreams.

As your writing coach, I will give you individual guidance to help you find focus and inspiration, make progress on your dream projects, and feel greater confidence in yourself and your ideas.


Why hire me?

My coaching style has been honed over more than a decade of work as not just an editor and writing teacher, but also as a writer myself. Yes — I’ve been where you are. I know how difficult writing can be, and how easy it is to let the days slip by in an uninspired blur of to-do lists and tasks. Meanwhile, the project you feel most excited about, the project you’ve been talking and dreaming about for ages, languishes under a pile of papers in your desk drawer or buried somewhere in your computer’s hard drive.

I know what it’s like to feel frustrated. I know what it’s like to be afraid to write or speak your truth. And I also know the joy and exhilaration that comes from finally busting through writer’s block and moving forward into a creative and fulfilling life that continually surprises you with its gifts.

My coaching style is a success-proven mixture of:

  • compassionate listening to understand your own personal writing and life goals
  • enthusiastic cheerleading to help you move past writer’s block and negative thought patterns
  • constructive and detailed feedback that pushes you to grow
  • deadlines and structure to ensure you GET. THINGS. DONE!
