Certified Creativity Coach Kimba


If you can imagine it, you can create it. Let’s work on it together.

I began coaching in 2008 and have provided over 850 individual and 50 group coaching sessions. As a creativity coach, I have helped women write, paint, make pottery, act, dance, sing and create music. I have also coached hundreds of women on how to use expressive arts for self-discovery and growth. My clients will tell you that my coaching sessions are uplifting, playful, energetic, warm, and caring as we worked together in exploring all the possibilities! How can I help you?

About Kimba

Kimba Livesay, Creativity CoachI LOVE the creative Spirit.  It calls us to CREATE something that resides deep within.  Sometimes that creation takes the form of a drawing, story or art journal.  It can call us to use art for exploration and self-discovery. At other times our creative spirit calls us to create a business, social movement or a unique coaching program.  This has been my own experience with the creative process.  It is a magical process that ebbs and flows using our gifts, passions and values.  On a personal note I live in a 1924 magical cottage that me and my family have fully restored.  I live with my spouse, daughter, two dogs and a herd of cats.  I have a very special little friend, a Boston Terrier, named Olivia.

My Coaching Mission

Creativity Coaching MissionI am on a mission!  My super power is creativity.  As a creativity coach, I help women develop their artistic talents. I work with artist, writers and other creative souls to accomplish their dreams.  As an expressive arts coach, I help women use art to facilitate self-discovery and growth.  Watch a short video about what I do!

My Coaching Philosophy

Creativity Coaching PhilosophyMy creativity coaching philosophy is embodied in the model I created, The Creative Play Way.  The Creative Play Way is positive, fun, playful and creative.  The model allows us to play with creative possibilities and build on small steps that can help you reach your creative goals. 

In a Creative Play Way coaching session I listen and ask questions that can help us figure out what you need for that session.  We may use a Creative Play Way tool to deepen awareness or inspire your creativity.  The goal of the session is that you leave with one small step that brings you closer to your creative dream.  Even if that small step is just to think about what a small step could be.  Watch a short video about the Creative Play Way.
