Hilary Kern, MA, ACC, ATR
Hi! I'm Hilary. I was an incredibly shy kid and thanks to one extraordinary teacher, I experienced what it was like to be seen for the first time.
There's an incredible joy and power in art. It take what can feel like such a disconnected and isolating experience of life into something meaningful.
I've been searching my whole life to find a way to do that one special thing that my teacher did for me. I've gone from art therapy, teaching, coaching and to my wild adventure in becoming an artist.
I've taken what I've seen works, and bring those skills and support to you, because I believe that you have something really important. I'm here to help you find it and share it with others.
If you're struggling with...
regret and worry that you're missing out on something spectacular with your creativity
thoughts like this is dumb" or "no one cares" with your art
finding ways to hide from sharing yourself to the degree you’d feel seen and connected
being torn between the free flow of creative energy within you and the worry of what others will think

I collaborate with clients in 1:1 professional coaching sessions to uncover their creative energy and vitalize a clear vision forward, full of meaning and heart. Through ontological coaching principles and proven mind-body approaches, clients are supported 100% to move past stopping points and take authentic action with joy and ease.
"Hilary was a great help and a joy to work with. In our time working together, I was constantly impressed with Hilary's positive attitude and unwavering levels of support for me.
In our time together I feel like I grew a lot as she gently challenged the thought patterns that were keeping me stuck and unable to participate in projects that meant a lot to me. I'd highly recommend Hilary and I had a great experience working with her."
