Music and all of the creative arts have the power to transform emotions & experiences in ways that talking cannot. Music therapy is the use of music in therapy to aid you in your journey to wholeness, your true self, and wellness. Music therapy includes listening to music, relaxing with music, talking about music, song writing, & playing instruments. Services include individual and group sessions through telehealth at this time. Music skills are not required to benefit from music therapy.
I work nationally through telehealth providing music therapy individual and sessions focusing on stress, anxiety, trauma, acute or chronic pain, & life’s ups and downs. In addition, I offer a free monthly music meditation. All are welcome.
