Third-Layer Creativity (TLC)

You want to be more creative, but there’s all that noise — exterior demands, inner critic, tangible barriers — that compete for your focus, time and energy. Creative coaching can help you put that aside for just long enough to tap into that magic place where your creativity speaks louder than the noise. 

Creativity Coaching: Individuals and Small Groups 

One-to-one: Three to four months of a personalized ‘Creativity Semester’ all to yourself. Alex will create personalized creativity exercises tailored to your particular interests, needs and barriers within 24 hours of each appointment. Single appointments only available for previous clients (come back any time for a refresh!).

Series Appts/mo Personal exercises/mo Total appts Total cost for the semester
Series A 1 2-6 3 $900
Series B 2 4-8 6 $1650
Series C 3 6-12 10* (9 + 1 bonus) $2250

* Series C gets one free follow-up appointment one month after the ‘semester’ ends.

Small Group Coaching

Small groups are beneficial for three reasons: 1) they are more financially accessible, 2) participants get one 1-1 session, and 3) each person gets additional support from fellow creativity students. Many groups continue to support each other and even meet online, months later. Classes are four weeks for one hour — we meet weekly for three weeks and have our fourth and final meeting three weeks later. Participants can sign up for their individual 1-1 appointment with Alex (50 minutes, included in the price of the group session) anytime, up until the final follow-up session.

Level Total Cost Next class dates* (3-6 participants) Spaces available
Beginning $330 Wed 10am: Jan 13, 20, 20 and Feb 17, 2021 3
Intermediate $330 Sat 10am: Nov 7, 14, 21 and Dec 12, 2020 Full

* Group sessions usually are at 10am or 4pm Pacific time Tues or Wed or 10am Sat. If you know 3-6 people (friends, work groups, leadership teams, book clubs, etc) who would like to unlock and grow their creativity together, we can create a personalized session for your group. Same prices apply.

You can also sign up for Alex’s class at Write Like a Honey Badger.

After our session last week, I walked around … in amazement that what we were doing was not only getting to the third layer of creativity, but a deeper level of healing. Creativity is vulnerable, freeing, scary, playful. [I get now] why there are steps in the ladder, because I need to go through each phase.

I thoroughly enjoyed the time spent in each session of Third-Layer Creativity. Prior to the course, I felt like I was working my way through a dense forest with my creativity. The skills learned in the course helped me create a path. There’s still a journey ahead, but at least I have a road to travel now!



As a to-do list lover, I enjoyed developing my lists and creating action plans. The real value came with opening up that third layer. I saw that the lists won’t really help until I’m clear on what’s at the core of what’s really important to me.
