A majority of my work has been with the adult and senior population. In my undergraduate studies, I completed several clinical experiences, which included working with special needs children, at risk teens, and preschoolers. I truly enjoy my work as a music therapist and believe in the power of music to restore, maintain, and improve physical and emotional health.
