who we are
enlivenment is a generative space where artists, particularly artists of historically marginalized genders*, can come to nurture their practice, take risks in their work and get more comfortable and confident exploring who they are on camera.
we are a home for creative, ambitious, remarkable forces of nature who are committed to building impactful careers while staying true to their artistic integrity.
we offer a unique blend of on camera, career, personal and creative development coaching.
*Our definition of historically marginalized genders includes transgender women, cisgender women, transgender men, non- binary individuals and all gender identities which have been systematically oppressed by those in power throughout history- especially as pertains to discrimination and exclusion in the entertainment industry.
“Vivien is a generous, kind and creative coach. The work we've done together has made me feel more confident, comfortable and, above all, more like myself on camera. I cannot recommend working with her enough... hands down the best coach I've ever had.”
- bryn kennedy, actor
"Vivien goes out of her way to make me feel seen and heard; it’s more than just the craft of acting— we strip down what it is to be a woman in the industry and how being in tune with all parts of me ties into my work.
I leave every session feeling empowered and inspired!
- lindsay wu, actor

I truly believe that so many people can benefit from working with her".

Vivien has helped me find better ways to work through the uncertainty of this industry, develop a personal practice, and work from my own experience to create more truthful performances.
She is a highly qualified, incredibly supportive, hands on acting coach and her warm and nurturing personality is what I love most about her!

"Vivien's approach allowed her to get to know me in an organic way and meant our work was perfectly tailored to what I needed in my personal growth and development as an actor.
Techniques I learned with Viv remain invaluable to me every time I prepare for a role".
