Helping others reach their full potential is truly a work of heART

 Your HeART Journey Begins Here

The expressive arts are a vital part of everyday life, from music to movies, from drama to dance, from photography to poetry. 
I utilize the Expressive Arts in Therapy to help you or your loved one access your inner resources, break down barriers, and allow for personal growth and healing.
I specialize in helping people through difficult life changes and believe that each person has the wisdom and strength within themselves to find a new normal.
An overwhelming sense of grief and loss can occur at any time in life, following any life-changing event. I incorporate the expressive arts into more traditional grief counseling techniques and walk with you on your HeART Journey toward healing. 
The many changes we have experienced over the past months has required mental flexibility and creativity on new levels. This has been extremely stressful for everyone... me too. 
In processing this new world we now inhabit, I wanted to find a way to bring the healing power of music, art, and guided imagery to as many people as possible as easily as possible. And so, the launch of the Guided HeART Journeys Podcast is coming July 1, 2020.
The weekly Guided HeART Journeys Podcast will incorporate guided visualization with a recommended expressive art experience to allow you to continue processing the visualization. You will be able to subscribe to the podcast through your favorite platform (Spotify, Apple Podcasts, Google Podcasts, etc.) or listen to each episode here!
As you probably already know, podcasts are distributed for free. This content is yours to listen to when you want, as often as you want. If you appreciate the podcast, consider becoming a patron at Patreon. There are various support levels with member benefits at each level.
Music Therapy is our HeART Journey
Music Therapist with Older Adult
​I am a music therapist first but embrace the power of other art modalities as well. I want to share my knowledge and experience with you!

As a therapist and counselor, I believe it is my duty to understand how my clients may be feeling and truly grasp what I bring to them. That is why I have personally participated in the therapeutic techniques I utilize... as a client. This allows me to connect with you on a much more personal level.

I believe that all life experiences impact our work. This is especially true when it comes to difficult life changes, grief, and loss. While no one can tell you they know how you feel, it can be a significant comfort to know the person trying to help you has gone through something similar.

I would be honored to walk with you on this part of your HeART Journey, with my personal and professional experience allowing me to be the kind, empathetic guide you have been looking for.
