Main Street Music Therapy: Wellness Through Creativity

Wellness Through Creativity

Trauma is much more common than we wish to believe. Trauma overwhelms us & we cannot fully process what happened.  Part of us lives in that moment & we carry those wounds around with us. Trauma impacts us in all aspects of our lives.   We react to life both with what is going on now & what happened in the past. You can heal from trauma put it in the past. 

I specialize music psychotherapy.  In addition to trauma, other areas of my expertise include  creativity in healing, gender & sexual orientation journeys, acute and chronic pain, navigating oppression and discrimination, & life's ups & downs.  Through a partnership with you, we will find and travel together your path to wellness.  

I offer a variety of services including Progressive Counting & Music Therapy.  I offer weekly therapy sessions.  In addition, I offer adjunctive therapy (you continue to work with your pre-existing therapist while working with me short term focusing just on trauma) work and intensive trauma therapy (3-8 consecutive all day therapy sessions where we resolve the traumas throughout your life). 

I identify as transmasculine nonbinary & queer.  I have 30 years of experience working with children, teens, adults, & older adults.  My work centers in humanism, queer theory, culturally responsive, & anti-oppressive practices. I specialize in trauma, queer issues, stress, identity development, stress, anxiety, relaxation, & pain.
