I had it all. Or so it seemed.
I remember it like it was yesterday. It was 2008…the stock market crashes and my “perfect life” began crumbling down. I faced foreclosure and bankruptcy. I also came face to face with shame and embarrassment. I felt like something was wrong with me. Here I was, a successful actress getting amazing opportunities in my career, yet my personal life was in shambles. To friends and family I epitomized confidence and success. But the reality was, I felt incomplete. I was unhealthy, stressed, lonely, depressed, constantly getting sick, financially insecure and frustrated with life. I could no longer hide and pretend that everything was fine.
In that moment, I knew something had to change. My pride was in the way though and I didn’t want anyone to see my mess. But I knew deep down that I needed help to get out of the funk I was in. Somewhere along the line I realized, if I wanted to live my ideal life, it was time to do something different. That is exactly what I did. I finally got help. I sought out mentors and coaches, read countless self-help books and got reconnected to my spirituality.
Because I was so determined to improve my mental and physical health, I even became a Certified Holistic Health Practitioner when I graduated from Institute for Integrative Nutrition’s highly respected health coaching program. I took my life back!
I enjoyed digging deep with my clients, so my health coaching turned into Life & Career coaching. But after years of coaching women on improving their health and reaching their goals, I noticed that I began working with more and more actors. It kinda just happened and I found that I connected to them on a much deeper level. As actors, our hearts break deeper than most people. We’re always so connected to our emotions. That’s why we are so good at what we do. So that’s been my sweet spot for a while now. Helping actors just like you get out of your funk. Helping you the same way someone helped me.
YES, I’M AN ACTOR, BUT I HAVE A LIFE. AND SO DO YOU.
I know what it’s like to let your life become consumed by your acting career. As an actor of over 20+ years…TRUST ME, I get it. LOL. You spend your life waiting, hoping and wishing for that BIG BREAK. Then sometimes the break comes and it’s not all it was cracked up to be.
VERY FEW PEOPLE UNDERSTAND HOW HARD OUR JOB IS.
Actors who work with me are usually trying to figure out:
- How to deal with rejection over and over again.
- How to find more auditions.
- How to get representation.
- How to balance your 9-5 with your dream of being an actor.
- How to set S.M.A.R.T. attainable goals AND achieve them.
- How to market yourself in this big industry.
- How to add streams of income to support being an actor.
- How to have faith when you’ve lost all hope.
- How to love your body when it’s constantly being judged.
- How to handle your new found fame.
- How to deal with nerves and angst.
- How to be happy for your friends/spouse when they are booking more than you.
- How to get unstuck.
- How to lose weight.
- How to get and STAY motivated.
- How to push past resistance.
- How to get over insecurities.
- How to stay in the game and NOT throw in the towel.
My 1:1 coaching sessions are uniquely customized for each of my clients. I work with them on whatever they need help with by using my signature Follow Through Formula™ to get massive results. The common denominator is that they all want to take their lives AND careers to the next level. They want to enjoy the journey along the way to stardom. Don’t you? Well, you can.
I’m so glad you landed on my website. It was meant to be. You don’t have to hide behind your makeup or your smile like I used to . We’ve all made mistakes, lost focus, had setbacks…wanted to give up. But in spite of all of that, there is a part of you (no matter how small it is) that is DETERMINED to elevate your life AND your acting career. It’s that determination that I help you grab a hold of to create the change that I know, and you know is possible.
