Your need to create is part of being human. You are on this planet to be a creator.
You are here to choose where and what to create. Have fun!

Each of you has your own path across the creative landscape. Sometimes you lose your way, and can’t find your north star. Some of us will be artists and poets, some of us will create businesses, some of us make gardens and families. All of us are creating, all the time.
And no one else sees your particular constellation of interests, goals and creative desires. No one else can create what you can. No one else will develop her creative choices and accomplishments the special way you will. 

Everything you do shows you something about who you are as creators. And you know what? Growth and satisfaction are very possible, as Jeanne says below.

Creative development- whatever stars make up your unique constellation and guide your choices - is why you are here.
Okay, you say. Now what? What’s needed to move along this path?
We are hard-wired to help and be helped by others. You need an experienced guide, an artist, teacher and fellow human being, who knows this 
territory well. I’m the Inner Sherpa. I help you find your creative path, guide you along, and release you from your baggage. You’ll learn how to move across your own territory with increasing delight and feelings of success.
Be in touch.

“Wow, Tory, you seem so much more than a creativity coach, consultant etc. The work you do is transformative, deep, soul work. 

You really between the spaces and places, where very few people have the capacity to go or want to go.
You ask the Big Questions…. the really challenging, thought-provoking and sometimes-really-make-me squirm-in-my-seat questions – so necessary for growth, truth and the authentic life that I’m in search of.
I never knew these creative energies existed in me until I started working with you!

“Working with Tory was the best gift I ever gave myself!  It literally changed the way I think.
My first session was transformative: I couldn’t believe how cool it felt to follow Tory as she led me to new more positive patterns of thinking and doing. This is something I’ll go back to again and again, knowing Tory will be able tohelp me move forward.”
