The most painful piece of feedback I ever got in an acting class:
“There’s something in you, but I don’t know how to get it out.”
It came from one of the greatest acting teachers I ever had, which made it even more soul-crushing. I thought, if this prolific acting teacher can’t get it out of me, who can? I felt hopeless and devastated. A failure as an actor. Deficient as a person.
Now, over a decade later, I help other actors get it out. (Singers, dancers, and musicians, too). I know how to help you fulfill your potential. And I know that what you really need isn’t happening in your acting class. Or your voice/music lesson. Or your dance workshop.

I’ve got personal experience with the passions and pitfalls of performing, and the psychological know-how to help you make the changes you want. If there’s one thing I’ve learned over the years of performing and therapy-ing, it’s this:
Everything you are looking for is already here. Now. In YOU.
