My Approach to Helping

During my previous work as a music therapist in hospital and private practice settings, I worked with children through older adults with various mental health difficulties ranging from situational depression, chemical dependency, and anxiety disorders to severe and persistent mental illnesses such as schizophrenia, personality disorders, and dissociative identity disorder. I offered group and individual music therapy addressing goals relevant and specific to participants’ lives through experiences such as expressive songwriting, supportive risk taking through percussion improvisation, group cohesion and trust through active music-making, insight discovery through song discussionanalysis, and music-guided relaxation strategies. I subscribe to a trauma-informed and humanistic approach to therapy, believing that all humans have worth, and with careful intention and guidance, can improve their mental health and wellbeing

I am dedicated to helping you find restoration and healing when life’s challenges and hardships occur. It can be difficult to navigate through obstacles on your own, and I find it a privilege to support you through your healing process towards a happier and healthier life. I will meet you where you are in your own unique situation with respect and compassion. I work with children and young adults with developmental disabilities, intellectual disabilities, and autism spectrum disorders.

More Info About My Practice

I am a master’s level board-certified music therapist and registered psychotherapist having earned my first master’s degree in neurologic music therapy from Colorado State University in 2016. My studies encompassed a broad overview of music therapy with all populations. I pursued extra clinical hours working in schools and mental health clinics to emphasize my interest in psychiatric music therapy. I have worked as a music therapist for three and a half years, offering individual and group services addressing a variety of individualized goals at facilities and private practices such as Highlands Behavioral Health System, Rocky Mountain Music Therapy, and the Colorado Mental Health Institute at Fort Logan. I specializes in music therapy with mental health populations across the lifespan, as well as children and young adults with developmental disabilities, intellectual disabilities, and autism spectrum disorders. I have joined Brightside Counseling as a practicum student while pursuing my second master’s degree, Master of Arts in Mental Health Counseling from Northwestern University, to earn dual licensure as a board-certified music therapist and a licensed professional counselor.
