ACTORS ON THE COUCH

 

For a long time I was an "actor on the couch". Not the casting couch --  I’m talking about therapy. 

 

Like many struggling young actors, I grew deeply frustrated trying to earn a creative living while performing in a string of unpaid stage productions -- all while waiting for the phone to ring with TV and film roles that never materialized. But part of what helped me hone my craft, drive, and understanding of myself was sitting on that couch and working with an amazing therapist; after all, an actor is her own "instrument" to explore!

 

I have worked with actors since 2009, helping them gain insight into their instruments, motivations, and relationships to their careers and with others. I have been fortunate to bear witness as some clients have deepened their desires and commitments to pursuit of the craft of performance, and have been just as lucky to see others gracefully walk away from the profession in order to start new lives.

 

Whatever path you're on, if you’re looking at this website I believe I have a good understanding of how you're feeling, and I think I may be able to help. Call or email if you would like to set up a free consultation. I look forward to meeting you!
