Writing Coaching

Books have the power to heal, to teach, to inspire.

I’ve been blessed with the opportunity to speak my truth and have it published. It’s been an honor to hear from my readers  how my books impacted them. However, I first had to get over my blocks and early creative wounding. If I hadn’t, I would have never written my books. I know that I am not unique. I know many people have powerful, positive, healing stories and messages to share. If you are reading this, you are probably one of them. You’ve been called to share your story or your wisdom. You have an audience that is hungry to connect with you, to hear your story or your message. Many books will never see the light of day without a mid-wife to help in the birthing process of the book.  That’s why I began specializing in writing coaching and coaching writers and authors. You don’t have to call yourself a “writer” to benefit from my writing coaching and classes. All you need is a desire to find your voice and share your message.

I offer a variety individual writing coaching and group writing coaching and classes.

Here a few things you might want coaching with:

  • Getting started – “I want to write a book, where do I start?”
  • Writer’s Block- “I’m stuck.”
  • Organization-“How does this all go together?”
  • Creating a Writing Practice- “I can’t seem to find time in my schedule to write.”
  • Motivation-“I have time to write, I just can’t seem to get my butt in the chair!”
  • Finding Your Voice-“I know I have something to say, how do I say it?”
  • Creativity Coaching-“My writing needs more juiciness.”
  • Confidence-“No one cares what I have to say, why should I do this anyway?”
  • Book Proposal-“How do I do it?”
  • Self-Publishing-“Should I go for it?”
  • Finding an Agent-“How does this work?”
  • Editing and Feedback-“How am I doing? Is this any good?”

Schedule a free 20 minute coaching consultation or contact me so we can discuss your situation as well as schedules and rates.

I am available for in person meetings in the Los Angeles area and via Skype and telephone.


“I am so grateful to have found Davina as my book coach. After taking a workshop with her at the Salt Studio, which helped clarify my goal to write a book this year, I decided to continue working with her privately to go deeper into what’s blocked me from attaining this goal in the past. I have been impressed by her insights, which blend psychological, spiritual, and practical perspectives. She nailed it with book recommendations that she gave to me as “homework” and helped me develop new habits that have gotten my book out of the starting gate. She is warm and supportive, but she also has given me a (much-needed) firm nudge when I’ve gotten off track. Writing a book can be a lonely, daunting venture, and it really helps having Davina in my corner cheering me on. Highly recommended!”– Rachel L. Hancock Park, CA

“Working with Davina as a writing coach was so fun! Her wisdom, guidance and positive feedback helped keep me stay excited about writing my book! She has this kind of earthy presence that helped me stay grounded and on track. ” -Keith Braselton, Author of Engage Love – A New Healing Paradigm

“Davina’s inspired support has made writing my book real, present and possible! Her celebrating even the smallest steps has transformed my attitude about writing our book. Her love is huge and her vision unstoppable. She holds you in the light and you simply cannot fail! I highly recommend Manifest Your Manuscript!” –Deborah W., Health Coach (Marin County, CA)

“From the first session I had with Davina, I wanted more of her. She helped me see what was in the way of getting my writing project completed. After understanding what that was, I proceeded toward my goal with Davina by my side every step of the way. She has heart and understanding. She will meet you where you’re at and in the most gentle way guide you toward where you want to be. Her relaxed style will help you forget your own anxiety about your project. Initially, I resisted the idea of getting coached by Davina because I didn’t know how she could help me. I eventually gave in knowing I had nothing to lose. I gained more than I ever  imagined. Call her and let her do her magic!” Ann D. Oakland, CA

“Working with Davina as a life coach has been an extraordinary, highly positive experience. After a very big life shakeup, she helped me refocus and move on, despite my fears. Davina works from an intuition developed from years of experience, and she provides deep insight, acceptance, and, always, encouragement. I would recommend her to anybody. I got results.”Ericka L., Author, Teacher, Writing Coach

“What an amazing journey it has been working with Davina as a writing coach. It started back in January 2013 and I’ve been writing feverishly since. I’ve attended in person writing workshops and live and recorded tele-seminars with Davina and both have been very productive! ANd in different ways. What has triggered inside of me (thanks to Davina) was a willingness to put “on paper” what I’ve only kept in short periods of blogs, loose tattered journals here and there and also in my head. The time spent with Davina has solidified my commitment to writing. She is experienced as a published author and shares her many insights with her students.  I now feel like the title of a famous book  I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings.”– Erica O. Studio City, CA

“I have worked with Davina as a writing coach, and what I love most is that she brings so much more to the sessions than just great encouragement and technical writing skills. Her coaching is far more rich because of her training and experience as a psycologist and spiritual practitioner. Because of Davina, I’m breaking through, not only the resistance to writing my book, but also the barriers that have kept me from even believing that I had a book to write. So grateful for her coaching and her wisdom!” – Cheryl, L. Los Angeles, CA

“Davina is an extremely talented writing and life coach. With her direction I have almost completed my first book. Without Davina’s guidance and patient approach I never would have had the confidence in myself to cross the finish line.” –G.T.  Studio City, CA
