My main goal as not only an acting coach but also as a director is to let the actor live truthfully under the imaginary circumstances. I use various techniques and methods that I myself learned when I was younger and that I found useful. There are teachers out there that really damage the actor's psyche with their ways. I will never ask you to do something that you are uncomfortable with or force you to go somewhere mentally that you are not ready to go to. My goal is to help build confidence, inspire, and guide the actor through the process of finding what works for them.
I apply various techniques that have worked for me (Sanford Meisner, Stella Adler, Lee Strasburg, Konstantin Stanislavski, Micheal Checkhov) and added some of my own which include various improv methods. The root of all these techniques is listening.
The greatest gift is watching the actor grow, in order for that to happen, they have to develop a routine. A career is not achieved by waiting, but by being active and training on a weekly basis -that is what I encourage the actor to do. Thanks to technology, there are various ways we can practice alone, and with fellow actors around the globe.
