Writing and Dissertation Consultation
Writing Coaching
For writers struggling with writer's block and/or organizational and time management issues, or for aspiring writers seeking publication, I provide one-on-one writing coaching. I work with clients to lessen their anxiety and quiet their inner critic so that they can write more freely and productively. 
 
I work with clients in all disciplines, including the arts, sciences, and humanities. I offer practical strategies for becoming unstuck in your writing, finding your voice, and carving out time and space in your life to get your writing done.

I wanted to let you know that my book was approved with no major revisions! I was thinking about how much you helped me last summer and wanted to thank you again!

Dissertation Consultation
I conduct dissertation consultations with doctoral students in diverse fields in the arts, sciences, and humanities. I meet with students for one-on-one, in-depth consultations tailored to the individual's needs. I can help you sharpen your argument, improve your conceptualization and organization, deal with a difficult or unresponsive advisor, and develop work habits and a work schedule that fits into your life. 
 
I help students address the myriad psychological issues that may arise when one is dedicating one's self to working on a long-term project that is meaningful to them and whose completion means moving on to a new phase in life. I also consult with students by phone and email, and have worked with students from around the country. 
Dr. Starr,
I am making great progress with my dissertation and want to thank you SO very much for getting me on track!”
