I received a Bachelors Degree from UCLA and began my career as an actor. Soon after, I began teaching and developing my own technique to learning the craft of acting.
In 2007 I trained with Phil Gushee in New York. 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. Most recently I taught Psychology of Acting at the New York Film Academy located at Universal Studios,
My technique focused on Freeing the Emotional Instrument and Healing the Inner Child. In my workshops my actors would come up against 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 these beliefs.
I was compelled to find an answer. I undertook many personal development courses, including People KnowHow Personal Transformation. I became a Certified Practitioner of NLP and Time Line Therapy® and was trained in Spiral Dynamics, all 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.
We know that the Conscious Mind processes 40 bits of information per second. The Subconscious Mind processed 40 million bits of information per second. Therefore it is the much more powerful and pervasive subconscious mind that is actually running our lives and creating our reality.
The subconscious is like the hard drive on a computer. In childhood we downloaded onto that hard drive information and beliefs that would help us survive on the planet. Much of that information was positive and self-supporting. Some of it was negative and limiting. In order to experience real change and move through our inner obstacles, I understood that I needed to find 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 trained to become an Advanced Facilitator of PSYCH-K® and PSYCH-K HEALTH AND WELLNESS®. I became a Certified Life Coach in 2009 and an Advanced Facilitator and Preferred Affiliate of PSYCH-K in 2008. Dr. Lipton was right. This elegant process has become the foundation of my work.
The primary focus of my entire professional life has been the human journey and finding ways to free ourselves in order 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 own abilities.
I am a trained guide in Multidimensional Psychology. I have successfully used 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 change is occurring in their lives bringing them greater satisfaction, peace and connection to themselves.
