“I believe that all individuals can learn to live a rewarding, balanced, mindful, and healthy life, have positive family or work-based interactions, make meaningful connections, and create opportunities to restore skills, learn, grow, play, laugh, pursue individual interests, and develop skills to nurture the mind, body, and soul. The best part…music and play can help to facilitate all that!”

“I’m fascinated by how our minds work. The ways we think, communicate, and behave overall are so unique. Sometimes we need help with expressing ourselves, understanding others, or building different habits- and that’s okay! My goal is to help clients in their journeys to become their best selves. Let’s work together through talk, craft, and play. “
