More Than You See 2.08 – Sara Tomko: Spirituality, Divorce, and Staying True to One Self in Hollywood

Always inspired and enamored with my friend Sara Tomko who joined us for this podcast this episode. Sara Tomko is an entertainment artist & mental health advocate living in LA. She has been acting in film and television since 2007. Her roles include guest stars on Once Upon A Time, Sneaky Pete, and The Leftovers. Her most recent success is playing the Series Regular role of Asta in Resident Alien on SyFy. You can find her on Instagram @saratomko19 & Twitter @actressaratomko to keep up with her work.

Sara and I discuss the hardships and healing of going through divorce, how much meditation and a spiritual practice has kept her grounded, and how she stays true to herself as her interaction with society shifts as her career continues to blossom. Absolutely adored talking to Sara, and I hope this episode will leave you feeling inspired and full of warm fuzzy feelings.


Every week join me, Deborah Lee Smith actor, filmmaker, mental health advocate for a conversation on mental health like you’ve never heard before. My platform, More Than You See is dedicated to exploring nontraditional mental health resources to help you build your own emotional wellness toolkit.

I absolutely discuss therapy, the importance of medication, and highlight organizations around the world devoted to destigmatizing mental health, but I also focus on books, personal practices, podcasts, TED Talks etc, because here’s the thing… I’m not a licensed practitioner or therapist. I’m just a woman exploring my own journey with mental health and sharing my experiences and the experiences of the community with you, the listener. Join me for a weekly conversation every Monday that will be sure to bring a smile to your face and help you feel a little less alone. Because we’re all More Than You See.

Hi there! I'm an actor, producer, and writer who is devoted to storytelling and mental health awareness. After struggling through my own mental health, I found that non-traditional resources, like the ones we explore on More Than You See, helped me immensely get through my dark times. Thus, this website and podcast were born! I look forward to helping you gain agency over your mental health journey as you build your own toolkit of resources, tips, and ideas. Because you never know what might help pull you out of the darkness, and we are all More Than You See.
