I'm LA (as in tra-la-la) Bourgeois, a freelance writer, author, and Kaizen-Muse certified creativity coach.

As a coach, I work with people one-on-one, as well as leading workshops. Over the years, I've taught in-person and online workshops for all ages on a variety of subjects. My creativity workshops have been sponsored by Steamboat Creates, the Women's Jewelry Association of Asheville, and CreativeMornings FieldTrips. For more information on my creativity coaching, sign up for my newsletter at subscribepage.io/unlockyourcreativity.

You can find my writing in publications such as Mountain Xpress, Out Front Magazine, Psychology Today, and as a featured author in "The Coach's Guide to Completing Creative Work," edited by Eric Maisel and Lynda Monk. My not-quite-complete portfolio can be found at https://muckrack.com/la-bourgeois.

And, if you're in the mood for a chuckle, you can find my Diary of a Lesbian Housewyfe newsletter at https://lesbianhousewyfe.substack.com/

My coaching & writing is informed by the teachings of Jill Badonsky and Eric Maisel.
