Career Counseling

Erica Teaching a SeminarAre you stuck in your acting career, not sure what direction to go in next? Are you getting advice from many sources, trying to make sense of it all? Are you struggling to figure out the best way to market yourself? Not sure what classes to take, what photos to use, agents to go to? Are you sick of your monologues? Do you need help preparing for auditions and some honest feedback on your acting?

Well… I hear ya! I’ve heard these questions and many others over and over. Throughout my career, many actors who are dealing with all types of career roadblocks have approached me.

Whether you are just starting out or you have been in the business for many years, I am here to be your guide. I have been casting and working as an acting teacher for 18 years. Over that period I have gained a lot of information that is useful to actors of all levels, allowing them to think creatively and outside the box when it comes to making decisions about their career.

I truly enjoy using what I have learned to help actors succeed. This business changes everyday and the more inside scoop you gain on how to maneuver through it, the better results you will receive. I am here to reveal what’s behind that curtain, while encouraging and inspiring you every step of the way.
