A Wellness Coach helps their clients feel and function at their best. At MTCA, our Wellness coach Erika helps her students improve their relationship to food, movement, stress, sleep, performance anxiety, social media, and social circles. All of these areas greatly impact mental health and wellbeing, especially for modern day teenagers. By establishing a safe and supportive space, Erika helps her students develop a deeper understanding of the habits and choices that will improve their energy, balance and quality of life. All of these tools are particularly helpful, and often necessary, in this busy chapter of auditions and applications. Avoiding burnout and overwhelm is key. Prioritizing wellness is invaluable- as a human, as a busy teen, and especially as a performer.
