Description

My education in neuroscience and lifelong experience as a musician and artist offer me a unique set of skills. As humans we are much more than just our brains. Music helps re-integrate our sense of selves through including our bodies in our thoughts. I can help you reclaim parts of your self that you avoid or may fear through art and embodied dialogue.
It is my intention that in working together in a non-judgemental, compassionate, and honest dialogue that I can help you on your path to healing. Kierkegaard once stated that "life can only be understood backwards; but it must be lived forwards.
