Caroline Rickson, Creative Life Coach

life coach Lancaster, PA

Hello! I’m Caroline!

As a Creative Life Coach, I partner with people to achieve their dreams and experience a greater sense of wholeness.  I specialize in incorporating creative expression with personal and professional development coaching. Depending on the needs of the client, I provide coaching, self exploration through art or a combination of both. No art experience or “talent” is required in Creative Life Coaching.

I have learned through my own personal experiences and through working with clients, life has many unexpected turns. As a result, limiting patterns and beliefs may develop. Fear may affect how you view yourself,  manage your emotions, relate to others, and how you move through your day to day life.

I offer creative life coaching in individual, group and workshop settings. I have extensive experience and endeavor to work with adults and teens from diverse backgrounds. I am passionate to partner with people looking to overcome blocks, increase confidence, reduce stress, heal hurts, feel connected, increase creativity,  practice self care, increase motivation, discover purpose and meaning, live a balanced life and achieve their version of success. I believe the client is the expert on themselves. Our goals and action plans are developed collaboratively. I strive to provide a space that is non-judgmental, safe, creative and dynamic.
