"You help me to see the transcendent aspect of my writing, so that it becomes an 'of course' to think of sharing it outside our meetings, perhaps to publish it.

"There is a way I feel directed to serve this that comes from beyond me, and to ask 'What is it for?' That question gets directed to something much larger than my fragile ego and picks up the power of determination in the process."

--Roberta Gannon, MFT, poet




"Naomi has been an immense help to me in developing a writing project that had been hopelessly stalled. When I first sought her about a year ago, my writing was merely a collection of notebooks gathering dust on a shelf.

I had long fantasized about fashioning the notes into a coherent narrative, but this was only to be a caffeine dream—that is, until I noticed Naomi’s small ad entitled Writing from the Deeper Self—and I felt right away that should could possibly help me.

"From our very first meeting I was inspired with an enthusiasm and confidence which has been assiduously transforming my dream into a reality. Several times along the way when I felt that the project was derailed, she carefully helped me put it back together, with encouragement, wisdom, and insight. It has furthermore been a very enjoyable and productive process.

"I can highly recommend Naomi to anyone who has an unfulfilled dream of writing."

—Robert Graham Faller, author,
