These Are a Few of My Favorite Posts

2017-07-19T14:19:17+00:00July 19th, 2017|

I'll admit that today I was a little stumped for ideas about what to write in my weekly blog post. My husband and I are knee-deep in raising a vivacious toddler and feisty 8-month-old full time at home and sometimes it's hard for me to transition into "music therapy mode" when the kiddos lay down [...]

Why Vulnerability is Critical When You’re a Music Therapist

2017-06-14T15:09:14+00:00June 14th, 2017|

In last week's blog post, I shared about a musical experience I facilitated where clients were prompted to create and perform their own rap. I also let you in on a little secret. I created and performed my own rap along with the clients and was so nervous that it caught me completely off guard! My [...]

My Sound Birthing Experience (Part 2)

2017-01-24T20:59:42+00:00January 24th, 2017|

  Last week I got kind of personal with you. I shared some of my experiences going through the Sound Birthing Method while I was pregnant. The nightly relaxation sessions and singing sessions that are part of the Sound Birthing Method are some of my most cherished moments from that pregnancy. There were two other components of the [...]

My Sound Birthing Experience (Part 1)

2017-01-24T20:59:10+00:00January 18th, 2017|

Do you have a song that takes you right back to a specific moment in time? One that makes you feel "all the feels" as if you were there in that moment again? I do. It's "Home" by Phil Phillips. That was the song playing when my first daughter, B, entered the world. When I hear [...]

Let’s Go With the Flow

2016-11-22T21:14:35+00:00November 22nd, 2016|

I'm the kind of person who writes everything down. I have lists for food shopping and"baby needs" shopping; I have to dos for my business and my website; I have post its for family and "hubby" reminders. You name it, I've got it written down. So it's no surprise that I'm very focused when it comes [...]

This Has Never Happened To Me Before

2016-01-13T18:01:23+00:00January 13th, 2016|

On Monday, I did something that I've never done before. I forgot my entire bag of instruments and props. All of it. Maracas, bells, scarves, stretchy band, letter cards, books, microphones, animal pictures, bubbles, kazoos, and a drum. Yep. In my private practice, I have a variety of music therapy sessions scheduled on Mondays with [...]

Happy new year! This holiday season has truly been wonderful. It was full of family, friends, cooking, traveling, and music - all the things I love and cherish. With the holiday season coming to a close and the new year unfolding before  me, I wanted to be sure to take time to start the year right [...]

Why I Led This Music Therapy Session in the Dark

2015-04-08T17:13:14+00:00April 8th, 2015|

For the past three weeks a client of mine has come into our session room and turned off the light. He'll turn it off, then turn it on. Then he'll play with the dimmer and make the light brighter...then darker. Then he'll turn the light off again. Each time he did this I would respond by turning the light on and [...]
