Music therapy is never about playing music "correctly." Rather, we use music to experience and notice-- to really get deep down to the root of what's going on for you. People often need something beyond talking in order to fully understand a pattern, relationship, or emotion. Music works wonders at reaching emotions without letting your intellect get in the way!
In my work with clients, I often focus on the voice--both literally and figuratively--as an expression of the self. During sessions, we may sing together or alone, listen to music, discuss lyrics or play instruments. No musical experience is necessary. Improvising vocal sounds, exploring a feeling on a drum, or meditating to music can elicit the kind of uncensored responses that can be helpful in unlocking old emotional puzzles.

More Info About My Practice

I work with people of all ages and backgrounds. Many people I see are seeking relief from depression, anxiety, and high stress. Most clients are looking to increase their mind-body connection, often after years of ignoring or numbing emotions.

I also offer individual coaching and group workshops for therapists who are interested in starting up a private practice.

Specific Issue(s) I'm Skilled at Helping With

I offer individual sessions and groups for transgender and genderqueer people. Trans people and individuals who exist between the gender binary may not have had ample space to explore what actually feels authentic or to express creatively. For instance, trans kids are often told what to wear or how to talk. As Director of Camp Aranu'tiq (summer camp for trans kids) and in my Trans and Genderqueer Music Therapy Groups, I have found that creative expression in a safe space can be immensely healing. Experiencing one's inner creativity is a direct path to feeling authentic-- often more direct than through talking alone.
