About My Clients
I specialize in providing an eclectic approach to mental health and wellness. Each session will be tailored to your individual needs, and, in addition to traditional talk therapy techniques, may include music-based interventions such as improvisation, guided meditation, songwriting, playlist creation, music and movement, lyric discussion, and more.
My Background and Approach
Feeling safe, connected, and resilient are all central to wellness. There are aspects of our experiences that can be difficult to reach with words and music can help us gain insights, develop coping strategies, and make connections in a new way. I believe that all people are resilient, and my goal is to help you reveal the roots of your challenges so you may move forward with a deeper understanding of yourself. In sessions, we can use verbal and music experiences to promote wholeness, wellness, and growth. Regardless of whether you desire talk therapy or music therapy sessions, I am committed to meeting you with empathy and warmth. Growth happens when we dare to show up for ourselves in new ways, and you've taken the first step. I commit to meet you with gentle openness that will provide you the space to explore, connect, & discover. Schedule a free phone consultation to learn more, ask questions, and discuss if we would be a good fit. No evening appointments open at this time.
