“I believe that all individuals can learn to live a rewarding, balanced, mindful, and healthy life. They can have positive family and or work-based interactions and learn to make meaningful connections. Together we can create opportunities to restore skills, learn, grow, play, and laugh. We can assist individuals to pursue individual interests and develop the tools they need to nurture their minds, bodies, and souls. 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. “
