"What would life be if we had no courage to attempt anything?"

Vincent van Gogh

Creative Development Facilitator, CES

From my 15+ year career as a film director in educational drama with trauma-based themes to my training as a psychodrama psychotherapist, I remain passionate about empowering artists. My unique blend of skills sensitizes me to the needs of actors as they journey on the courageous path of character exploration - especially when it relates to portrayals of trauma-based stories. I am well equipped to guide you through the potential blocks, defenses and boundary challenges that may arise when using yourself as a vessel for dramatic art communication.
