Service Description

I offer writing, editing, research, and coaching services.

I am guided in this work by my background in literature, my experience in bookselling, my education in depth psychology, my teaching of writing workshops, and my training in rites of passage.

Send me your under-developed prose. Send me your weak and weary heart after trying to do the job, over and over, without ever quite finding the thread that gets you to the pot of gold you know is buried under all those good intentions. Send me the work that demands an audience, but has yet to find its voice. Send me your writing projects that need a watchful eye and an attentive heart: when Logos works with Eros, creativity is a river that flows with force.


*I have a bachelor’s degree in literature and a master’s in depth psychology with emphasis in Jungian and Archetypal Studies from the Pacifica Graduate Institute where I continue to do research in depth, archetypal, and ecopsychology.

*I worked in the book business for 22 years and ran my own bookstore with a staff of 3-8 for 12 years.

*I have certificates from the Denver Publishing Institute, the Sewanee Writers' Conference, and the New York State Summer Writers Institute.

*I am also a trained Jungian Rites of Passage guide.

*My passions include wilderness, writing, fiction, depth psychology, fly-fishing, reading, ice hockey, and my family life with two boys and my wife.
