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.

As a lyricist, I have utilized my skills and experiences to help others address life's challenges through songwriting in therapy. Mental health sessions are an ideal venue to be vulnerable through music creation and allow you to discuss problems in a fun, engaging, and artistic way. Personally, music helped me find my way again following the death of my 16-year-old son in 2021. I was honored to write several songs about him and perform them online and across the US, dignifying his memory.
