Creative practices can often be a safer and more direct way of expressing, experiencing and understanding the most challenging emotions. I integrate my experience as a performer in Jazz, improvised and World music as well twenty years of zen practice into a unique and effective approach to therapy. Using both verbal psychotherapy and creative art mediums in a safe and supportive environment I work to guide the therapeutic process towards achieving a client's unique goals.

Music therapy is the strategic use of music toward a non-musical goal. I have been an board-certified music therapist for over 10 years. I specialize in using music for anxiety management and self expression. I am particularly interested in working with musician’s mental health. Inviting client’s musical lives into the therapy can be rich and powerful way to address their goals. Whatever your relationship to music, I believe you will find music therapy a fun and effective way to work.

I've been a music therapist for over 15 years. Music therapy is a process where the therapist helps the client move towards health through music experiences and the relationships that develop through them, as forces of change. I have extensive experience in clinical improvisation, where music in sessions is improvised and created to meet the moment, to help facilitate expression. I've been able to provide music therapy online through tele-therapy since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic.
