Creative Arts Therapies
Music and the expressive arts in conjunction with talk therapy can help open our creative side for deeper exploration of current issues and relief of symptoms. Music in particular can tap into our emotional states where release and relief are easily accessed. Home visits for neurologic patients and children are available on a case by case basis.
EMDR stands for Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing and is a therapeutic, integrative psychotherapy approach that has been extensively researched and proven effective for the treatment of trauma and symptoms of PTSD. An EMDR practitioner often uses vibration, bi-lateral stimulation and binaural beats to relax the central nervous system and allow for a safe and easeful transition into our subconscious and in the body where much of our trauma is stored and subsequently released.

Reiki is based on the principle of universal life force energy.
Through deep listening, resonance and entrainment, the instruments we use in each session help to bring equanimity, calm, and release of tension and stress. The combination of Reiki and sound helps to balance the autonomic nervous system through vibration and movement of stuck energy in in our bio-field.
Somatic Sound Therapy
Somatic Sound Therapy provides an opportunity to deeply listen to the body-mind, focus the breath, drop into the body, and release. Practitioners use various sound tools including the voice to help our clients relax the mind and body where imagery, sounds, and physical sensations are experienced in a safe and grounded environment. A Somatic Sound Therapy session is usually 70 minutes and can help relieve symptoms of anxiety, stress, depression, and pain.
In the practice of music therapy or other healing modalities, we sometimes find ourselves feeling alone, isolated, unsure of what the right interventions might be in a particular scenario with our clients. Supervision is a key component in creating on-going inquiry, self-care, and insight into our clinical work. I offer both group and individual supervision for healing arts practitioners and licensed clinician
Sound Walk Meditations
Sound Walks are walking meditations in groups of up to 20 where the walkers are partnered together led by a teacher. We use Mindfold blindfolds and each person is guided by their respective partner to explore the sonic environment through guided listening, touch, and a sense of play using the world as our orchestra.
