I received a Bachelor’s Degree from UCLA and began my career as an actor. Soon after, I began developing and teaching my own acting technique.
I taught acting for United Performers Studio in Tokyo, Japan as well as conducting private acting workshops and master classes in Tokyo, Sydney and Los Angeles. I created and taught the Actor Connection course at Actors Centre Australia and the Foundations of Acting at the prestigious National Institute of Dramatic Art in Sydney, Australia and lastly, I taught Psychology of Acting at the New York Film Academy located at Universal Studios in Los Angeles.
My acting technique focused on Freeing the Emotional Instrument and Healing the Inner Child. In my workshops, my actors would uncover deeply held beliefs that were getting in the way of their ability to access the full range of their feelings. While we understood at the Conscious level what was getting in the way, we didn’t have the tools to shift these Subconscious Beliefs.
This had been my own experience with therapy. While therapy gave me a good understanding of what had happened, what I believed, and why it was a problem, it didn’t really offer effective and lasting ways to change my negative and limiting beliefs.
I was compelled to find an answer. I undertook many personal development courses, including People KnowHow Personal Transformation and was trained in Transcendental Meditation. I became a Certified Practitioner of NLP and Time Line Therapy® and was trained in Spiral Dynamics, all very powerful approaches to understanding and shifting our inner and outer perspectives.
It wasn’t until I came upon Dr. Bruce Lipton’s book, The Biology of Belief that I began to find real answers. In a nutshell, Dr. Lipton’s scientific research proved that we create our reality based on what we believe.
What he explained was that the Conscious Mind processes 40 bits of information per second while the Subconscious Mind processes 40 million bits of information per second. Therefore, it is the much more powerful and pervasive subconscious mind and all the beliefs stored there, that are actually running our lives and creating our reality.
If we imagine the subconscious to be like the hard drive on a computer we can better understand how, in childhood, we downloaded onto that hard drive information and beliefs that would help us function on the planet. Much of that information was positive and self-supporting. However, some of it was negative and limiting. In order to experience real change and move through our inner obstacles, we need a way to shift those negative beliefs.
Dr. Lipton recommended PSYCH-K® as the only process he knew of, which permanently rewrites our subconscious programming at the level of the subconscious mind. I am trained in PSYCH-K® and PSYCH-K HEALTH AND WELLNESS® and became a Facilitator and Preferred Affiliate of PSYCH-K® in 2008. Dr. Lipton was right. This elegant process has become the foundation of my work.
I became a Board Certified Life Coach in 2009 and a Board Certified Relationship Coach in 2020. This training supports and enhances everything I do with clients.
The primary focus of my professional life has been the human journey and finding ways to free ourselves to become the most empowered, confident, and whole human beings we can be. I continue to seek ways to serve my clients and expand my abilities.
I am a trained guide in Multidimensional Psychology and use it to successfully uncover and rewrite past life and subconscious patterns. I have adapted the technique known as Cutting the Ties That Bind and I am a Certified Practitioner of Emotional Connection, a process developed by Raphael Cushnir.
My greatest reward is when a client tells me that real and lasting change is occurring in their lives bringing them greater satisfaction, peace and connection to themselves.
