Change the story you’re telling, and you change everything…
Stories are all around us. They are the context of our lives, our hearts, our minds… They are the powerful filter we walk through each and every day. Finding the strength to own our stories can set us free from the histories we adopted and the lies we have believed, sometimes our whole lives.
Daring to tell new stories is to go on a journey…
Being willing to open our hands to the stories that define us, that frame our place in this life, is to make space for the ones that will push us forward and set us free. We simply need to know how…
How do we recognize our stories?
How do we decide if they are helping us or holding us back?
How can we begin to create stories filled with OUR TRUTH, so that our lives might truly become a reflection of our deepest selves?
Joy & contentment are found by living your true story.
Are you ready? Join us…
Delivered via email Storyteller is an online course for women designed to serve as a road map deep into our stories, our dreams, and who the heck we really think we are. Filled with community, connection and clarity each week of the course builds on the one before with plenty of space to practice the tools, share our ah-ha’s, and ask questions along the way.
We’ll use our cameras to unlock the context we’re already living in but are too close to see clearly. Then as we begin to reveal new ways of thinking about our lives and ourselves, we’ll turn our photos into our visual narrative– celebrating our new stories as we make them real.
~ 6 weeks of exercises, prompts & assignments to unearth the stories living inside you & gain the clarity to start telling new ones
~ 3 group calls for Q&A, spot coaching, and checking in throughout the course

What happens when we understand the power of our stories?
- We know ourselves fully and deeply
- We walk in the world with confidence & compassion
- We create lives that are an expression of our deepest truths
- We awaken to the beauty that is always within and around us
- We make empowered choices that honor our most sacred needs and dreams
~ You’re feeling a sense of disconnection from your day to day life and you want to become reinvigorated by it
~ You feel a wave of emotion come up as you think about letting go of your history to step into your present
~ You know you want to be a force of positive energy in the world but it’s as if something is holding you back
~ You want to feel confident and passionate in and about your life
This might not be the course for you if:
~ You’re in a good spot & making time for more introspection feels like a burden (go, rock out in the world!:))
~ You don’t really want to be taking photographs for six weeks
~ You genuinely don’t feel ready to do this kind of deep soul work (that’s ok, too. You’ll know when you are.)
Do I have to be a photographer to take this course?
Absolutely NOT! We use photography as a tool, as a way of expressing visually and revealing the story we are filling in around the images we look at. Your photos can be taken on a cell phone, point and shoot, or high powered DSLR, but what really matters is what is contained within them and how we are thinking about them. No photo skills are needed to get to the heart of the stories you’re telling, and that’s at the heart of this course.
How do I get the lessons & exercises?
You will receive three emails each week, on Monday, Wednesday and Friday. The first two will contain your exercises, assignments, and information to help you gain insight into how your mind is working to create your stories. The third will be a dose of inspiration, to help you keep digging and revealing more and more about your own personal journey.
Who will see the photos I take?
That’s up to you. We will have a private Facebook group, so there are opportunities for sharing if you feel called to. In the last week we do discuss both ways to share and the power of telling your story, but the choice to share your photos and your stories is completely up to you. And you will not miss out one bit on what the material can teach you if you choose not to share.
Can I share my photos and stories on my personal blog during the course?
You are more than welcome to share the images you take and the stories you begin to recognize on your own personal blog. This is your journey, I encourage you to do whatever you need to so that you can get the most out of it. The only thing I ask is that you don’t share any specifics of the actual course work in your posts. As others come to take the journey themselves it is most powerful to let it unfold for them just as it will for you. Thank you so much for understanding. If you have any questions about what to share or not please feel free to email me at email@example.com.
Is this a coaching course or a photography course?
While I am both, and this is a happy marriage for me of two passions I love, this is more a coaching course than anything else. The materials I’ve developed originated from my coaching work, and the tools, methods and techniques we’ll be using are born out of the training I received as a coach from Martha Beck. The use of photography is as a vehicle to get us into our heads, understanding our minds, and bringing insights into the more physical realm of our day to day lives.
Will I get better at my photography by taking this course?
That’s definitely a possibility, but it’s not the ultimate goal. There will be no direct photography instruction included in the lessons and assignments. We are primarily focused on the stories we tell when we see images, but we always get better at the things we practice, so developing a stronger photographic eye is definitely a possible side effect of shooting the way we will.
If you’re thinking about joining me, please know this:
I am genuinely ecstatic to be sharing all this. I’ve seen the way doing this work can change how we think about our lives, but just as important than that I’ve seen how it can change the way we FEEL about who we truly are. When we feel good in our own skin, when we accept ourselves enough to actually BE OURSELVES, we are able to share with the world in a way that is honest, generous and passionate. Rather than feel depleted by all the ways we aren’t enough, we are invigorated and inspired, and quite frankly, inspiring. I’ve come to believe that:
- within each of us there is beauty and possibility far exceeding what we can imagine
- when we know of this beauty, and can see & feel it for ourselves, we can exist in the joy of peace and fulfillment
- and when we are peaceful & fulfilled we create lives that we are in love with, lives that spark the same in those around us.
I hope to see meet you soon!
