Lima Bergmann

Lima has a history of performing in Community Theater and was a dancer who toured internationally as a young adult. Following a near fatal car accident, she shifted careers and became a California Licensed Psychologist who has specialized in Child and Family Therapy most of her 25 year career. She was the Clinical Director at Alameda Family Services where she developed a protocol and training manual for their internship training program for graduate students, helping it to become one of the best in the Bay Area.

She homeschooled her two daughters, Lyndsy and Hannah, first using ISP’s and ultimately registering with the state with her own private school called Veritas Academy. She was very involved with the local home school community and provided acting and dance classes to two different home school programs for credit in the Public School system. Meanwhile, she oversaw her daughters’ acting and dancing careers as they developed, spending the last 13 years in theaters and on film and television sets with them. As young adults now, she continues to serve as their Business Manager. She also has experience in coaching child actors for theater, film and television. She is currently an Executive Consultant for Rodan + Fields skincare, is in the middle of writing her first screenplay and just started writing her memoir.
