Web Site:


You have a unique gift to offer the world. What if you have an idea of what that gift is, but don't know how to use it or trust it? In a unique process tailored to your goals, visions, and ideals, I can help you bridge the gap between possessing your gifts and talents and expressing them. 

I am called in this life to share what I have learned and applied to my own creative work. Fostering growth in others is a great honor and privilege. I believe each of us is imbued with gifts to share with humanity, and unlocking them brings us a powerful sense of appreciation, value, and connection.

Methods of Working:

I work in-person and by phone.

Individual Services:

My skills range from straight-up life coaching to guided visualization and internal "journeying." I work intuitively with each client, creating unique exercises appropriate to the context. We may talk, use breathwork, different modes of inquiry, movement-centered work, meditation, or acting methods. Each session is an exciting and powerful set of moments that will empower you to break through to your truest, most creative self.

Training and Experience:

Alicia's background in interpersonal relations and creativity is extensive. She graduated from Hampshire College with a degree in filmmaking and screenwriting. She subsequently studied for four years in an intensive Progressive Method Acting group with the Rob Reece Actors' Workshop. 

Alicia's life coaching and courseleader training is through TCLT, with Guy Sengstock and Alexis Shepard. She is a graduate of The Arete Experience, The Spirit of Life Institute, and Authentic SF. She is also a member of the professional Association for Applied and Theraputic Humor. 

Alicia has produced award-winning films, lead a circus on a cross-country tour (really!), and recently written a parody of David Allen's book Getting Things Done (about time-management). A skilled performer and speaker, Alicia recently won "Best Female Solo Act" in the San Francisco Fringe Festival. She currently practices (quite imperfectly--which is why it's called a practice) meditation which she finds beneficial in every aspect of life



Publications "Getting Shit Done" - A comical yet inspirational parody of David Allen's cult time-management hit "Getting Things Done."

Additional Comments:

As an artist and comedian myself, I have direct experience pushing past creative blocks. In my creativity coaching practice, I help artists move beyond creative blocks and support them to access the well of creativity, uniting meaning and money. I support you to be your gift to the world.
