Barbara Saunders

Somatic Story Coach

Barbara Saunders is a published poet, journalist, and writer of scholastic nonfiction. An educator at heart, she earned a psychology degree from Stanford and worked as a recovery counselor, entrepreneurship instructor, and fitness trainer before discovering embodied story coaching.

As a developmental editor and writing coach, Barbara's expertise lies in helping authors translate what they know in their bones into effective prose that makes a human connection. She has supported physicians, engineers, attorneys, and psychologists to communicate across disciplines and to lay people.

Barbara believes literature is sacred – that the right story can transform the lives of both the writer and the reader – and is excited to help Somatic Writing participants bring their wisdom to the world.
