WHO I AM AND WHAT I DO

I'm a music therapist who specializes in helping children and adults with disabilities reach their full potential while finding joy and human connection through sound. I also have a PhD in ethnomusicology, so I enjoy sharing my love of languages and musical styes from many cultures. For over fifteen years, I have worked with foster and adoptive families, taught classes, and developed an interest in how our minds interact with music as we interact with each other.

After witnessing first hand the incredible developmental growth my own children experienced as a result of their sessions with a dedicated music therapist, I decided to enroll in a music therapy Master's degree program in 2013. I currently work with clients of all ages, as well as teaching classes that harness the power of music.

MUSIC THERAPY FOR INDIVIDUALS WITH DISABILITIES

Sessions with a board-certified music therapist address a range of goal areas such as communication, motor skills, and social reciprocity. When used within a therapeutic relationship, music is an unparalleled tool for increasing motivation and brain function.
