When you work with me, you’re receiving a unique blend of the highest standards of psychotherapy, clinical counselling, music therapy, and musicianship that I have been developing over the past 20 years.
I am a Registered Clinical Counsellor with the BC Association of Clinical Counsellors (#17031), a Certified Music Therapist with the Canadian Association of Music Therapists (#0334), and a Climate Aware Therapist with the Climate Psychology Alliance of North America.
I earned a PhD from Concordia University where my research focused on music improvisation, mental health and well-being.
I hold a Master of Music Therapy with a specialization in Music-Centered Psychotherapy and an Honours Bachelor of Music Therapy with General Psychology from Wilfrid Laurier University. Before becoming a music therapist, I studied piano at the Royal Conservatory of Music.
I have provided clinical supervision to over 100 university students, interns, and professionals. I have taught music therapy extensively at universities across Canada, most recently at McGill University. I am currently a Research Fellow of the Manfred and Penny Conrad Institute for Music Therapy Research (CIMTR) at Wilfrid Laurier University.
