You are here for one of two reasons:
You have had a creative practice in the past, are hungry to reconnect with the practice, and want to learn to utilize to help you connect to WILD Woman Living
You are creatively curious and want to learn more about how the creative process can help connect you to WILD Woman Living
You also intuitively know that whatever you want to do next, there is something deeper getting in the way. And, you’re not only ready but WANT TO
dive in deep and get to the core of the issue. You know you need a different approach. You’re tired of just focusing on “mindset” and being in your head. You want to tap into the wisdom of your own body and learn how to trust yourself fully, to be clear on what you want, and feel freedom to live your WILD life on your terms.
Something inside you intuitively knows that creative expression is the way to override those unconscious systems and get to the core of the issue, while activating the movement necessary to move your life forward with confidence.
A Conscious and Ethical Mentor
As a trained and experienced mental health professional of over 20 years, I am driven by ethics that always prioritize the well-being of my client. I understand and implore the necessary boundaries needed for my clients to thrive and grow to their fullest potential, while keeping our work path clear and directed.
As a trained and certified Art Therapist, I am well-versed in knowing how to use the creative process to help clients access the answers they’re looking for, the resources they need, and the clarity to move forward. The WILD art process is simply a means to connect to your core self and gain access to all of your inner wisdom.
I want you to succeed. I want you to live the life you want to live. I want you to be free from anything that interferes with that so that you can live your WILD life and feel empowered, free and create a life you don’t want to run away from.
I offer conscious and ethical coaching and mentoring for heart centered women in midlife that are ready to connect to their WILD, make a change in their life and are eager to live in alignment with their values, experience more flow, and feel empowered to take on any challenge life brings.
Let’s work together to create the life you want to live!
Let me guess, you want:
To feel more freedom and less stress
To connect to the power of art and creativity
To live a purposeful life you can feel good about
To feel confident and empowered
To trust and believe in yourself
Have more fun and play and joy!
But right now, you’re not there yet.
Your stress level is high and you feel stuck, imprisoned, and restricted
You feel like life is missing something and wonder what your purpose is
You recognize you spend too much time in left-brain thinking
You struggle with self-doubt and negative inner chatter
You experience uncertainty about yourself and your future
You live in your head too much and recognize that you’re not having enough play and creative time
That’s where I come in. The mama bear mentor. What does that mean? It means that I am fully committed to you and I will hold your hand and gently and compassionately guide you from a state of uncertainty and overwhelm, to a state of calm and clarity. My goal is to help you get out of wherever you are and help launch you into the personally curated life you want to live. Created and designed by you. For you.
What people are saying:
“Working with Myriam is the real deal. She is open and straight forward but also offers gentleness and humor to help ease the process and help keep you on track. She gave me effective tools that helped me break down my internal barriers and gain control of my inner critic. I left my work with her feeling empowered, confident and clearer than ever on my gifts and strengths. I can not recommend Myriam enough!”

What Sets Me Apart
I am a trained and licensed therapist, in addition to being a coach and mentor. In order to become a therapist, you need to complete a master’s level education, gain 3000 hours of clinical experience and then finally, complete a licensing exam. You then are required to complete 36 units of continuing education credits every two years, including law and ethics so that the professional can maintain their ethical standards and learn the most recent research and information on how to best serve clients. We maintain ongoing consultation so that we can have opportunities for continued professional growth to better serve our clients. There is a standard by which we are expected to uphold ourselves professionally and in a way that does not do harm to the client. We are accountable to a governing board. I had to go through a similar process to become a Registered Art Therapist.
What does all this have to do with mentoring?
What sets me apart from most mentors is that my training and experience as a therapist have provided me with high ethical standards and a keen sense of awareness around what helps motivate and inspire humans. My own natural intuitiveness and ability to tune into others, nourishes my work and provides clients with an empowering and fulfilling experience.
Because of my extensive knowledge and curiosity about how humans work and what makes them tick, I can get to the root of the issue more quickly and effectively, as well as make effective recommendations to clients that inspire change and motivate the client to move forward.
I know how to create realistic and effective growth plans for my client that help them feel empowered and in mastery of their own lives. I understand that it takes a lot more than “mindset” work to get you to the next level. I know how to help you integrate so you can experience whole body wellness and life success!
How would Creativity Mentoring help you?
Connecting you to the superpower of the WILD Art process
Gaining clarity about what you want and how to get there
Creating a realistic plan that will ensure a sense of success
Working on your WHOLE self, mind, body, heart, and spirit, not just your mindset
Providing gentle accountability, support and cheerleading
What does it look like?
If you decide to work with me individually, you can trust in my commitment to your growth and in my support of you in creating realistic goals that suit your life’s vision.
I will ask you the right questions to get to the root of what gets in the way of what you want and will support you in helping you clarify your vision and execute it with confidence and clarity.
We will use a variety of tools including but not limited to mindfulness, WILD art, meditation, visualizations, and Brainspotting.

What is the difference between therapy and coaching/mentoring?
Therapy is a medical model, and the focus is often your symptoms, diagnosis, and treatment to alleviate symptoms. We look at you through the lens of diagnosis and focus on symptom management. The emphasis is often on exploring the past and making sense of that for yourself. This model works great but does often reach its limit with getting to the source of the issue. Traditional talk therapy is limited because you are only working with your thinking brain. And you are more than your thinking brain. You are a whole and beautiful being.
And don’t get me wrong, I’m not putting down traditional therapy, I’m just noting its limitations.
In coaching and mentoring, the view is much more expansive. We are looking at you as a person, a human, not a condition. We look at getting to the root cause with effective tools that override the thinking brain and get right to the source of the issue through specific questioning and neuroscience based tools that guarantee results.
What should I expect during a mentoring session with Myriam?
First, expect to keep things light, fun, and playful so that we can keep your thinking brain out of the way and get right to where all the wisdom is, your body. You can expect to get clear on your goals, discuss challenges and receive feedback from me on where to make adjustments that keep you flowing.
How long will it take for me to see results?
As cliché as it sounds, so much will depend on you, your commitment to yourself and your process, and how much you are willing to stretch. Since we will work together to set up realistic goals, this will support you feeling successful in your coaching journey. I will provide you with science-backed tools and strategies that have been proven to be effective. Together, we’ll tie it all together and build a personalized sustainability plan so you can feel confident in being able to continue your success far beyond our work together.
How much does coaching cost?
Coaching can vary in pricing depending on the training, expertise, and experience of the coach as well as their style of coaching.
Coaching is an investment in yourself. It should feel like a gift to you from you. An act of self-love and self-nourishment. An act of defiance: I’m tired and I’m ready to do something different! To learn more: About My Pricing
If you are looking to make a life transformation and you want to work with someone that has not only the knowledge, experience, education, and expertise, but that is also aligned with your values, skills, personality, lifestyle, and goals, then working with me, an ethical and experienced coach, is just what you need.
I work with…
Beautiful, courageous, rebellious, heart-centered women in mid-life that are tired of playing small. They are high-achievers who on the outside seem ‘put together’ but on the inside, feel imprisoned by stress and constant overthinking. They are tired of hiding parts of who they REALLY are. Tired of feeling disconnected. Tired of not having enough fun and life feeling redundant and dull.
My clients want to create change in their lives. They are
ready to embrace midlife and feel the freedom of being unapologetically themselves. They understand the power of both self-responsibility and the value of leaning on a professional for support. My clients are ready for the next level of work, to get to the core issue once and for all, and to start living their lives on their terms. For them and by them.
Who am I?
Hey, it’s Myriam and I am a recovering over-doer, overthinker, ignorer of my body, and stresser-outer.
I started my personal development work in my teens and have never stopped being a seeker and using any knowledge I gain, to help others rise up and live lives they can feel good about.
I struggled for a LONG time. Feeling stuck. Feeling overwhelmed. Feeling like something needed to change but not sure what. Trying to think my way out of everything but not finding much success.
Then I discovered the power of self-attunement and deep connection to your whole self, body, mind, heart and spirit, through the WILD art process and other body-oriented activities, and how these “simple” tools can offer so much transformation. I put the word in quotes because although simple on the surface, as women, we have been conditioned to be completely disconnected from our bodies, to live in our heads, to prioritize caring for others, and to let go of play and always be “on”. So deep connection, where all of our powers lie, does not come easy for women in the midlife journey.
What I’m Most Passionate About
For women in midlife:
Learning the power of self-connection and the creative process as an essential tool for personal development and growth
Experience the power of feeling deeply connected to their bodies and their inner wisdom
Feel confident in their own skin and love themselves fiercely and unconditionally
Fully feel their power and use their skills and gifts to help make the world a better and more equitable place for all!
Are we a good fit?
I do my best work with passionate, deep thinking, highly sensitive, creative women in midlife that know it takes hard work and commitment to get to where you want to go.
I am thrilled and honored to help you create your life masterpiece. You love personal development and I am likely not your first supportive professional.
Working with me can be fun and playful but it is also serious work and I will hold you accountable for your goals while holding deep compassion for you in your process. I ask a lot but I give just as much if not more to help you succeed.
I work with only a few individual clients so that I can stay focused and give you my full attention.
