You're worried that you're too much or not enough. You dream about standing up for yourself. You're seeking calmness in your body and your mind.

If you're waiting for the world to slow down, you may be waiting a while.

I'll invite you to move out of your head and into your body, using mindfulness and breathing and your own music.

Truth is, real change starts within.

It starts with slowing down enough. And getting curious about what's working and what's not. When you get curious about how you show up in the world - in your work, your relationships - that's how change begins.

I'll help you reconnect with your internal rhythm in a meaningful and creative way.

Music therapy can directly connect you to your past, present, and future selves - cutting through the chatter and BS straight to memory, emotion and hope.

Feeling calm and confident is your birthright. I can show you how.

More Info About My Practice

We'll start with a free 20 minute phone consultation - this is a chance to ask me any questions you may have and to share a bit about what's going on in your life and why you're considering therapy right now.

If it feels like a good potential fit to work together, then we'll schedule your first in-person session in my office.

On the Fence About Going to Therapy?

I hear you. And I've been there. But if you're feeling stuck, therapy can be very helpful.

Going to therapy doesn't mean you're weak or can't take care of yourself - it means you're brave enough to say "I can't do it all alone anymore" or "I'd like to feel better than I do right now" or "I need some help, and that's okay".

Therapy is not just for crisis management, but can help you better understand yourself, your decisions, and your feelings.

Having been in your place, I will do my best to help you feel comfortable. My style is warm and real - I curse, wear jeggings and laugh loudly.
