When you work with me, you’re receiving a unique blend of the highest standards of psychotherapy, music therapy, clinical counselling, and classical music training that I have been developing over the past 20 years.
I am a Registered Psychotherapist with the College of Registered Psychotherapists of Ontario (#001849), a Registered Clinical Counsellor with the BC Association of Clinical Counsellors (#17031), a Certified Music Therapist (#0334) with the Canadian Association of Music Therapists, and a recognized 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.
Before becoming a music therapist, I studied piano at the Royal Conservatory of Music. I have an Honours Bachelor of Music Therapy with General Psychology and a Master of Music Therapy with a specialization in Music-Centered Psychotherapy from Wilfrid Laurier University.
I have taught and supervised counselling psychology and music therapy students across Canada. I currently teach in the MA in Counselling Psychology program at Yorkville University and am Adjunct Faculty in the music therapy program at Wilfrid Laurier University .
