Therapy is an incredible vehicle for personal growth and self expression. As a music therapist and trained in expressive arts therapy I use creativity in my practice. I specialize in musician’s mental health.
Transitions, health, identity, sexuality, fertility, career, relationships, parenting; women’s issues encompasses so much. Anxiety and depression are common for women going through the stresses of modern life. I offer a feminist, compassionate perspective to support women to live their best lives.
I specialize in perinatal mental health. Working in the hospital setting has trained me for crisis management and prevention during this critical period. If you’re struggling with moods, anxiety or something else during pregnancy planning, while pregnant or postpartum, please don’t hesitate to reach out for support. You deserve it!
Music therapy is the strategic use of music toward a non-musical goal. I am a board-certified music therapist working with music therapy since 9/11. As I advanced my training into a doctoral degree in clinical psychology I have focused on using music therapy for anxiety management. I specialize in musician’s mental health. I have a unique perspective to welcome client’s music into sessions to access their full selves.
In my experience, the Client’s needs should lead the therapy, not the Therapist’s theoretical orientation. I trained in psychodynamic, narrative, feminist and humanistic perspectives. I approach therapy with strength based, authenticity, and emphatically validated interventions. I like to get feedback from clients frequently to continue to adjust my approach.
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.
