Description

I see you.

You have an incredible story, you’ve overcome challenges, and you are yearning to share them with the world.

However, when it comes to putting it on paper, you might think to yourself:

“My story isn’t grandiose enough, so it probably doesn’t matter.”

Or even, “It feels too painful right now.”

After 7 years of being a professional writer and spending over a decade in the mental health field, I realized that sometimes the hard stuff can build up and cause blockages in your writing and in your mind.

In my Write to Heal workshop, I’ve developed a unique process that helps move you out of your trauma and into true healing.

During this intimate workshop, we’ll work through my special formula together to:

  • Uncover just how powerful storytelling truly is, and how you can heal yourself and others by giving yourself permission to share your story.

  • Discover where we want our healing to take us and how to get there!

  • Practice with writing prompts that will help you parse out difficult emotions in a safe space, and learn how to truly heal through writing.

This workshop also includes:

  • An advance copy of my new book, Blue Rooms

  • Discounted admission to the stage production of Blue Rooms coming this summer


What people are saying:

"Writing is an isolating craft, and writing the hard, crazy, gut-wrenching stuff in life is exhausting, yet cathartic. It is easier to get through the thick goop of life with help, and Amanda is that perfect helper. She is exactly what I needed, even though I didn’t completely know it. As I write the hard stuff in my memoir, I am glad that I have someone beside me that fully understands this process. Amanda possesses the perfect balance between coach and cheerleader, and she will be everything you need and more through your process of self-discovery. If you are writing to heal, you will find what you need in this workshop--and leave a better, more inspired person than when you began."

--Sara S.


"With understanding, like a gardener tending to her most wild and thorny rose, Amanda compassionately curated my desolate heart’s despair from the demise of my marriage, pruning pain into prose until my story blossomed with the scent of understanding, bringing healing and solace to my soul.”

--Christina B.


"I’ve had a book in me for years but never had the confidence to put it into print. The actual writing is such a small part of the whole process. Having a professional critique and help made all the difference between writing an amateur quality book vs. one that shows professionalism and literary quality. Amanda helped me produce an award-winning book that I can be proud of. I whole-heartedly recommend working with her, and would do so again myself.”

--Joan W.


“Working with Amanda through my writing has been incredible and healing. She brought truths to the surface that I didn’t even know about myself, and that’s an unforgettable life and soul experience.”

--Vaughn C.


“Amanda was so patient and supportive from beginning to end. She gave amazing advice to help me dig deeper inside myself to share more of my story. It was very clear that she truly cared about making my book the best it could be. I highly recommend this creative genius."

--Abby M.
