Why do I coach?
I coach because I have a passion for helping actors. Whether you are new to auditioning, preparing a final callback, or crafting a role for performance, I'm here to meet you where you are and help you use your individual strengths to access greater depths of specificity in your performances.
I am here to see you!
As a coach, I am your “ highlighter.” I believe that you already inhabit everything you need to know as an artist. I’m simply here to nurture seeds of inspiration in your work and help you deepen your connection to the material. I will always meet you where you are, and provide honest, and direct feedback and advice.
I believe firmly in an artist’s commitment to the following:
It is clear when you’ve prepared and when you haven’t. Let me help you create a positive process of preparation that will serve you in auditions, rehearsals, and beyond. Preparation breeds a necessary confidence in the skills you’ve worked hard to hone. You deserve a commitment to preparation.
It is the growing power. Results are not immediate. Find the joy in cultivating process!
BELIEVING YOU'RE ENOUGH.
You can only be where you are right now and I promise you that is enough. Kindness to the ever-changing you is more important than your next audition. Kindness to the ever-changing you is vital to the longevity of your work as artist and a human. We will always celebrate the courage it takes to show up and work from there.
For all coachings:
I guarantee: a supportive environment in which you can explore, risk, and grow. You will receive honest and encouraging feedback on your work. All coachings are confidential.
I do not guarantee: your next job (THOUGH I WISH I COULD!). A coaching/class cannot guarantee that you will book the next job or that I will hire you in a project I direct or cast.
