Top performers of all types walk a perilous tightrope between giving their all to their work and jeopardizing their mental health. Being famous means being criticized. Being a performer means learning to live with rejection. I interviewed seven prominent artists and performers about their experiences with criticism—both internal and external—and how they’ve kept it from impacting their mental health. Check the full article👇🏻!

As expert on mental health I get frequent requests to share my vision on current situations. It’s so important to share this knowledge so more attention goes to the topic of mental health so I was glad to be able to share my expertise via Insider.
I was honored to be quoted in several stories in The Sun discussing how people can best manage their mental health during tragic or traumatic events, like the recent ones which happened to Alec Baldwin. Have a look at these articles to find out how to cope with the stress that comes along with it, and how to maintain a strong, positive mindset during challenging times.
Overcoming perfectionism can be a pretty big challenge. It’s definitely harder than you think and is a common struggle for professional actors, artists, musicians, creatives, and innovators. Always wanting your work to be absolutely perfect before sharing it could be preventing you from opening doors to more opportunities and experiences. Often when we’re holding ourselves back in this regard, we’ll get stuck in a cycle of low self-esteem, putting confidence on a downward spiral. Great to give my insight to SWAAY on why always striving for perfection could actually be holding you back.
Loved getting to chat with Jessica for The Polished Woman radio show! We got to talk about working with highly sensitive people and it sounds like her and Max definitely resonated with the challenges facing all of us when it comes to burnout. Enjoyed giving my expert advice on how to set healthy boundaries and identify the best ways all of us who are HSP can help set themselves up to thrive!
LA Talk Radio
Had a lovely conversation with Max Tucci for LA Talk Radio . There was so much to discuss it turned into a two part episode! Really a wonderful “life class” as he called it. We chatted about brain noise which is a problem for so many people. Everyone feels like their own worst critic and it shouldn’t be that way. The way we speak to ourselves has to be better! Being the best should be tied to treating yourself like the best!
This was so much fun! Nice to be invited by Hit103.1 Townsville in Australia to give their morning show hosts Clifo & Gabi some Million Dollar Advice! We talked about the importance of breath work and how it can help balance the pressures of a stressful performance, like competing for a million dollars! So many of us forget to make ourselves a priority in our day! One way you can do this is by simply slowing down and focusing on taking some time for deeper breathing.
Coffee with Colin
I had a blast being interviewed by world-class actor Colin Egglesfield. During this inspiring conversation, Colin and I discussed some invaluable insights, like ways to present yourself more confidently to the world, and we shared our own experience on how to manifest your dreams and goals!
We talked about topics like:
- connecting with your creativity
- setting boundaries
Some amazing questions were asked by Colin and the audience, which gave me the possibility to really go in depth and give a ton of value and insights on these topics (e.g. What is HSP?). If you’re looking for some hands on tips and tricks, you will absolutely love this interview!
That’s exactly the reason why we made sure there’s a recording for you to watch, so you don’t have to miss a thing!
I really enjoyed this conversation with Entrepreneur for their podcast Action and Ambition. They called it an inspiring episode! We talked about highly sensitive people and how a lot of top performers, artists, and high achievers are HSP, but they don’t even know it. I got to explain how you can recognize this in yourself, and how to combat the brain noise that can be a battle for us, especially when you’re under a lot of pressure or in the spotlight because of your career.
Amazing to be interviewed for Grazia Magazin! I loved getting the chance to discuss the intense mental pressures athletes and any performers at an elite level face in their careers. Wonderful seeing the importance of mental health getting discussed on the world stage with stars in sports this year & the Tokyo Olympics.
