Hire Me Today to Birth Your Creative Vision

My name is Khadijah Ali-Coleman and I am a professional writer, performing artist, educator and community builder based in the Washington DC area. I am also founding director of Liberated Muse Arts Group.

I have recently begun to include intuitive healing modalities within my coaching practice to offer my clients a holistic experience that respects the mind, body and spiritual connection of each individual. I am a certified crystal healer and certified Usui Holy Fire reiki practitioner, certified in levels I, II and III. I will be receiving my Master Teacher certification by 2020.  My clients appreciate my honesty, creative approach working with them and my ability to offer healing reiki energy, sound direction and support. I have also worked with clients in institutional capacities, offering speaking services, workshop facilitation and training services.

       You are a consummate professional, you honor time and preparedness, you are enthusiastic and you are flexible and able to think outside of the box to keep things running. 

                -Valarie Ashley, Executive Director, Southeast Ministry       

I began offering consulting services to individuals and providing workshops and training to organizations in 2006 when I began my consultancy So Our Youth Aspire, LLC. Two years later, I began the digital community which broadened into the performance troupe Liberated Muse Arts Group which provides multi-disciplinary performances, arts-based educational services and literary works. 

I began these two companies after I had been performing professionally since the late 1990's and had been writing professionally as a freelance writer for,, Capital Community News and other publications. Because clients always seemed to benefit from my integration of skills, I decided to offer the services you will find on this website under my new brand The Creative Midwife. 

Educationally, I have formal and informal training in the services I provide. I hold an undergraduate degree in Interdisciplinary Studies from the University of Maryland, Baltimore County (UMBC), a Master of Arts in Mass Communication from Towson University and I am currently pursuing a Doctor of Education degree from Morgan State University. I teach college-level courses in Communication Studies and Theatre, as well as non-credit courses in Self-Publishing, the Art of Business and other subjects. I work with individuals  and companies, providing speaker services, workshops and training to organizations, including schools, corporations, nonprofits, etc.

How can I help you?
