Welcome to my Website

Do you feel beautiful music inside but are so crippled with stage fright that you can’t perform optimally? Do you avoid getting on stage at all because of your fear?

I believe that almost everyone who is a fearful performer can learn to be a joyful one. In my private coaching practice, I work with musicians, speakers, singers, dancers, and actors who struggle with performance anxiety. During the past 22 years, I have had great success working with my own flute students and with clients including international soloists, university music professors, and professional orchestra and band musicians. I offer private and group coaching sessions and coaching by telephone. I also give seminars called Performance Anxiety from Inside Out, and have given presentations and workshops at venues around the US and internationally.

I create a safe, supportive environment in which I gently guide performers in identifying the personal experiences, feelings, and thoughts that act as barriers and inhibit their ability to perform. Then I teach them appropriate tools to overcome these barriers. The tools – highly effective approaches used to minimize stress and prepare for athletic competition – include positive affirmation, progressive relaxation, and mental imagery or visualization. Some performers only need a few sessions to experience positive results; others need more time to learn and practice techniques that, over time, will help them perform with less fear.
