A Little Glimpse in to Me and What I do

Yes I'm an actor. Coaching and performance are similar processes to me.
 
My programs coach Transformation, Unblocking, Revealing your easy access to super powers; of you and your piece. Whatever you're working on.  My methods include a drawing out of the embodied soul, exploration and inquiry. My clients are from all walks and stages of life, including actors, writers, healers, speakers; people who want to show up in their life and work authentically.

I have coached three Fringe shows into being, life transformations, a bestselling author's book, numerous actors and a long time collaboration with designer Mariana Zaharoff. 

Recurring on Better Call Saul Seasons 2-5, Winner as Leading Female for LA's Stage Raw Award and a Gemini Award (Canadian Emmy). 

Acting for Directors

This container is geared for the directors' acting training but gives an opportunity for actors and directors to understand each other for the shared purpose of a smooth-flowing creative experience and a more accessible opportunity to bring a higher level of work than just getting the job done.

 

Directors will have the chance to experience being in the actors’ shoes, learning that part of the craft by doing, not just theory. Participants get a rare chance to be in the practice of directing where there isn’t money on the table and a schedule breathing down your neck; to be able to feel the joy, fun and excitement of watching a scene grow through working it and how it evolves by way of its many iterations.

 

We will address those moments when a director is onset and not getting what they need from their actor and give you a rich toolbox on how to communicate to reach all kinds of actors.

 

From the actors point of view, we learn how to translate a director's note into something that is usable and doable in those high pressure moments. We get to talk about it in community, where you're not left on your own to guess and figure it out.

 

In addition, this course gives the director an understanding of what those translations are. This way, notes can be given in the moment in a way that the actor can utilize. By practicing in a no-stress environment, you can feel confident with the methods you're using, for example Emotional Recall; exploring avenues toward the same goal.
