Live a rich, creative life — without the clutter.

The universe buries strange jewels deep within us all,

Craving whitespace in your home and schedule?

Let me help.

Cultivating Simple is an online course that gives you the scaffolding you need to get from inspiration to action with a powerful combination of motivational podcasts, written lessons + accountability coaching to help you move forward and savor real results.

Your course led me to examine my life — something I did not expect. I spent most of my month with you thinking about my life, my space, my belongings, how large/small a living space I want ideally, people in my life and how they fit into my house, my wardrobe and how that affects what belongings I keep, and much more ... Much more valuable than just throwing a bunch of stuff out, which I have done before. Thank you!
