Welcome!

I am excited to work with you!

I work with individuals, collectives, families, and organizations.

Please check out some of the specific ways we can work together below.

Working Together!

Creative Ideation & Mentorship:
  • Got an idea but not sure how to make it happen? Let's work together so I can support you with your ideas/dream(s)!

    • I will support you (or your team/collective) to form your ideas and passion projects.

    • I will help turn your/the group's ideas into viable and realistic projects, events or works of art!

  • Pivoting careers but feeling unsure about next steps? Let's talk!

  • Deepening inclusion and justice:

    • I work with directors, leaders, and or teams to decentralize power in concrete ways. Part of this guidance is to provide specific ways to actively undo colonial structures that are embedded in much of our non profits, organizations, and spaces. These tangled colonial systems harm our creative work and our relationships. Let's aim to undo them by creating dynamic webs of care, while also making beautiful works in their place!

    • I will support you to create Relationship-First projects, that are mutually supportive spaces and work environments.

    • I work with folks to create justice informed & equity focused budgets. (central to this undoing!)

Affirmative, World Making, and Social Justice Writing:
  • if you want to write stories or essays that share different views from the dominant ones, or that might inspire us to find our way towards more just worlds, but are unsure how to represent that in your writing, let's work together!

  • From there, and in any genre, I support folks to shape their kernel of an idea into print or other works.

    • For writers: I will help you with an essay, article, short story, or book.

    • For media makers: I will help shape your podcast, audio or film documentaries/fiction, or any piece of multimedia art-form where story is at the root of it.

  • I particularly work well with emerging and nervous writers and artists, youth, and folks with learning disabilities/differences and neuro-differences.

  • As an editor, I specialize in sensitivity reading for all genres and styles, but can offer general proofreading as well.

  • Sensitivity consulting: I work with writers before they write their piece to help pinpoint potential issues such as: oppressive language, stereotypes and bias, tokenism, historical or cultural erasure, and or cultural appropriation.  

Sensitivity Consulting for Media Makers and Publishers:
  • I work with individual writers/podcasters/journalists (as I do with writers above).

  • I work with editing and writing teams, as well as with producers for podcasts, media shows, fiction programing, and much else.

  • I provide private and joyful audits to help uncover the often subtle but real ways that oppressive language might be in your work/project. Reach out to me directly to book an audit.

 

Youth Autonomy Guidance:
  • I support folks in creating multi-aged alternatives to schools/learning spaces and art spaces.

  • I support mentors/teachers who work with kids and youth to undo their adult supremacy, and more.

  • I provide guidance for parents/guardians to deepen their trust for kids, to figure out the best learning/schooling pathways for their family, and much else.

  • I work well with youth and young adults to break through institutional barriers that they are up against, and in general to uncover what they would like to do.

If you are looking for something else, reach out! I am open to other ways to support you or your group!

Below are testimonies from some of my previous clients.

"If you want a consultant to boss you around or give you a set of protocols, carla is not the person for you. But if you’re looking for someone who can listen deeply and help you see your projects, relationships, or life in a new way, there’s no one I’d recommend more. carla is deeply intuitive in a way that feels grounded and practical, and she has a gift for getting to the heart of things in a way that is deeply kind. Her counsel has helped me make big shifts in my life and make subtle adjustments that resulted in significant impacts."
