To be yourself in a world that is constantly trying to make you something else is the greatest accomplishment.

-Ralph Waldo Emerson

 Your creative nature is unmatchable and uniquely you; constantly winding, speeding up, slowing down, hitting an occasional bump or perhaps screeching to a halt. Whatever your challenges, pursuing your creative intentions requires effort, imagination and occasionally the help from an outside source. As a Creativity Coach, I offer support, encouragement and specific tools to help you navigate the challenges of your unique, creative journey.

Whether you are an overworked corporate executive, recently retired and bridging a new gap, a high achieving introvert or a devoted artist, dedicating time and effort to your creative nature requires courage, vision and a willingness to defy the cultural norm which presumes that “creativity is only for the naturally gifted”.  I believe we are all born with natural capacities to create and we all have creative potential of which we are unaware. 

Deborah Sussex

Creativity Coach

As your advocate, I help creative people overcome obstacles and become the authentic, productive and confident artists they are worthy of being. I will facilitate a collaborative relationship which is a non judgemental source of support and compassion, encourages resourcefulness, honors accountability, and cultivates happiness, healing and wisdom through a meaningful creative life.

What My Creative Clients Have To Say

  • I appreciated having someone who was totally focused on my goals! Deborah's listening and reflecting helped me stay focused, one goal at a time. I learned how to sell myself, as an artist, in an authentic way and I developed new ideas about marketing and opened myself up more to the creative process. It was helpful to be accountable to myself through being accountable to a coach. I look forward to continuing my creativity coaching with Deborah!

    Denali Brooke - New Mexcio Professional Visual Artist and Teacher
  • Deb's coaching has been an invaluable piece of my getting back on my creative path. I've struggled for sometime to find the ability to narrow my focus and find my own artistic voice. Through posing questions and offering suggestions, she helped me sort through what I valued, set new goals, and helped me to stay focused on and connected to my art. Deb's mentoring also helped me feel more confident about my creative self and abilities while branching out and sharing my work with the public.

    Dorota Sokolowski - Maine Artist and Working Mother
  • I highly recommend Deborah! Personally, I have found that the demands of work and raising families are best balanced with artistic pursuits. With my scientific and analytical career, Deborah encouraged me to explore my creative potential. She fostered a commitment for me to allot time to be creative. She was very in tune with my individual needs, and I look forward to continuing my art with her in the future.
