Do you ever feel like there’s so much untapped potential within you, just waiting to come out?

Do you have acting or public speaking skills that are just sitting there?

Or maybe you just want to become a pro at acting or speaking publicly, but don’t know where to start…

Well, it’s my job to guide you through this!

I have built a new coaching method, rejecting typical cookie-cutter teaching techniques that anyone can apply by reading a manual and instead developed a brand new strategy.

My acting classes take place with compassion, listening, and understanding at their basis: everyone likes to talk, but nobody is ever there to listen.

During my coaching sessions, you will have my full attention: I’ll hear you and mirror what I see with kind and thoughtful words.

Together, we’ll eliminate the roadblocks that are stopping you from succeeding.

I’ve been acting, directing, and producing for 20 years, and I’ve even performed for the Royal Family.

I also can assist

"I met Alicia through a school for modeling and acting, my daughter had just started classes there, I had previously submit her application for a short film audition, not affiliated with the school. I was nervous when contacted for the audition, knowing she has no experience, I mentioned her audition to Alicia and my fear, she was so excited for my daughter and was willing to work with her as her acting coach, my daughter not only got the part, I was told her audition was awesome. Alicia coached my daughter only twice before her actual location shoot day, I received so many compliments from the film director and camera crew how well my daughter played her role like a pro, thanks to Alicia. I recommend Alicia to a friend of mine in need of an acting coach for her 5yr old son, she is excited so is her son, he enjoys every minute with his coach. Alicia is the best and will bring out the best in her students."
