I am carla bergman and I work with individuals, collectives, and organizations to discover, unravel, and activate their creative dreams!
My work is rooted in listening, collaboration, and trust.
As an intuitive consultant, I will work with you to support your paths towards thriving more, and doing what you love.
Read more below.
At the core:
Joyful! And you will be encouraged to embrace a profound trust in the process and yourself.
private and uniquely designed for each person (or group). For now, we will meet virtually.
we start with a conversation! And, then we will move towards making a plan together...
is very immersive and follows each person’s dreams, learning needs and styles.
Payment and Fees:
My baseline fees support a living wage, are flexible, and case-by-case.
I consider the scope of the project and your budget when negotiating payment.
I offer a range of packages (coming soon).
I also want to grow webs of reciprocity and solidarity while also respecting yours and my time.
(and survive/thrive through capitalism with you!) — let’s grow that together (see below how).
Who I work with
I work with people across different disciplines and careers. To date, I have worked with artists, writers, students, and educators.
Creative Ideation, Mentorship, and Guidance:
I work with individuals and groups to support them to form their ideas and passion projects, including coming up with names! At times, it's more of a hybrid into my curation work.
I can work with your team to create justice informed & equity focused budgets.
Supporting folks to find their own paths towards locating their desired work and next creative project. I especially love to work with folks who are pivoting their work/careers, and /or with younger folks.
I can also help turn your/the group's ideas into viable and realistic projects, events or works of art.
For writers: I can support folks to shape their kernel of an idea into an essay, short story, or book. I particularly work well with emerging and nervous writers, youth, and folks with learning disabilities/differences and neuro-differences.
Here is a bit more about what to expect:
Affirming all the ways you’re already doing it.
I start by asking questions and listening to you. I trust your ideas and plans.
Fun and creative doula time!
I am a matchmaker! I will connect you to possible collaborators and/or further resources/mentors, etc.
I follow your needs! And through listening (and intuition), I will show you the many possibilities on the horizon.
trusting your ideas and passions.
moving beyond life-work balance to thriving.
anti-capitalism and abundance.
"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."
