Performing Artists are no different than athletes. They face the same pressures, challenges, and distractions. They experience the same fear of failure and elation when they succeed. Through consultation and work with biofeedback, performing artists learn how to optimize their performance.
Through telephone or in-person sessions, we will identify the specific issues that hinder your performance and focus our attention on finding and learning the right combination of skills that will help you realize your full potential.
Examples of interventions include:
- Relaxing and concentrating on cue for auditions and performances
- Controlling nervousness, distraction and anxiety
- Managing your energy, anger, and pain
- Increasing your self-confidence and self-esteem
- Managing your stress
- Seeing yourself as successful
- Integrating life balance

“There’s a lot of stigma associated with needing help, especially when it comes to mental health. However, when I could no longer function with the efficiency I desired, when my anxiety was preventing my daily and long-term goals, I knew I needed help. When I had knee surgery, I went to a physical therapist who helped me regain strength, mobility, and flexibility. Working together, she gave me exercises to do until I had regained all my former strength, and then some. I was released when we both felt I could prevent further injuries. Dr. Walker did the same thing for my mental health. I approached my mental health the same way I approached my physical health. And now I am a better and more capable person and performer.” - Actress, NYC
