"I came to Shelley a competent performer with 
success that had me in front of an audience much of the year, but I felt completely stuck. ...Shelley took me on a journey to discover my true essence as an Artist - she went to a deep level so that anything learned would stick even when I was under enormous pressures.  Now the performance place is somewhere I go to feel real, true and alive; the gift it should always have been."

"When I started my training with Shelley, I was obsessed with analysis and themes. There are great benefits in those skills, but Shelley brings the focus back to you, and that's what the world wants; the world wants the truest you, and that, by the way, is ultimately what you want too. I've had life-changing breakthroughs with Shelley and am eternally grateful to her."
