Music is Healing
As a graduate in the field of Psychology and an experienced health care worker, my focus in providing a musical experience to people in healthcare facilities is a therapeutic one.
Moonlighting as a professional vocalist and guitarist for over twenty years in varying capacities, I've worked in the health care field since 2001. Currently working in hospice, I've held positions in various facilities as a DSP/CRMA, agency CNA, Case Manager, and group home manager. My study of music therapy began through Guitar Doors, a non-profit organization providing therapeutic music programming to underserved individuals, including incarcerated populations.
With an ever-evolving repertoire, I actively ask for and add client requests for subsequent visits, always seeking to build engagement within the groups I lead. Able to choose from a vast store of classic songs from the 1920s through 80s, I tailor each set to the individual group of participants. Lyric sheets are often provided as an aid to encourage group participation through singing and conversation, and downloadable promotional flyers are included in my services.
With knowledge and experience in engaging and working with various populations, providing a therapeutic musical experience is my passion.
