Founder of Maine Music & Health. Music therapist, consultant, speaker. Performs as percussionist/vocalist.
Meeting nonmusical healthcare goals and objectives through music improvisation and a therapeutic relationship with clients. Studied at NYU and work in hospitals and day programs.
The programs I started when I moved back to Maine in 2010 are still in place now- weekly music therapy groups for adults with developmental disabilities, cancer, brain injury, dementia. When you properly build relationships and plan ahead, good programs will last.
As a music therapist, I see individual clients but also work with community organizations- nonprofits, hospitals, orchestras, treatment facilities, music schools; to build sustainable music programs that benefit clients and community.
