"Whether I was visioning in her studio or engaging my writing with her during a phone meeting, Gail’s clarity and insight inspired a powerful synthesis of transcribing my vision into an authentic outcome."
The Same River
"Gail gathered up our many chapters, pruned and reorganized them so that our book began to have coherence and flow. Her graceful, fierce candor allowed us to release our cherished words onto the cutting room floor. Gail’s capacity for deep listening called our true voice out and encouraged us to stand in our authority.
I am currently working with Gail as a guide on my memoir and her gift for empathic presence is allowing me to bring my vulnerable stories onto the page. If you are ready to offer the gift of your story or your knowing to the world, I would highly recommend Gail as your ally."
