About

My client population includes youth to senior age group with a variety of diagnoses, including Autism, Acquired Brain Injury, Alzheimer's/Dementias, Palliative care, PTSD and general wellness. No musical training is required and clients are encouraged to engage in therapeutic song-writing, vocal/instrumental improvisation, listening & analysis and performance. Clients want to ignite their creativity in order to have resources to deal with mental health challenges and for general mental/emotional/spiritual well-being. Reconnect with the most imaginative part of yourself for access to creative solutions to your own healing.
I am a Registered Psychotherapist (RP) with Music Therapist Accreditation (MTA). I use music as a tool to bring unconscious material to the surface so that it can be examined, expressed and repaired. No musical training or experience is required. Vocal and instrumental improvisation, song-writing and lyric analysis are all part of the journey.
First, thank you for having the courage to reach out. It's often the first biggest hurdle and you've cleared it! Please know that my approach is eclectic but client-centred so we move at your pace. You are in complete control of the process, I act as your "instrument". Let's have an introductory session to meet and see if we are a good fit. Thank you.
