I am a graduate of New York University with a Bachelor of Music in Vocal Performance for Musical Theater and a graduate of Shenandoah University with a Certification in Music Therapy. I am a Board-Certified Music Therapist carrying the credential MT-BC, as well as a Neurologic Music Therapy Affiliate, carrying the credential NMT. I am also a member in good standing of the Texas Music Educators Association.
I have worn many hats over the years including private practice music therapist, activities director, special education teacher, actor, singer, dancer, music director, music teacher, worship leader, business owner, and home school educator.
In addition to all these, I am also proud to wear the hats of Veteran's wife, mother of three, and daughter of the Most High King.
My studio is based around the principle that music is for everyone. The music that we choose tells our stories; gives shape, color and texture to our lives.
I believe that music can reach us right where we are, can unlock potential, and give each of us a voice - a method of expression clearer and more profound than any other known to man. Music touches us deeply and affects us unequivocally and completely. Music defines us, as beautifully and uniquely created individuals.
It is my goal to assist everyone I work with in achieving their personal best every day, in and out of the studio setting. Participants learn not only about the music that moves them, but important life skills that transfer smoothly from the teaching or therapy setting into their daily lives.
For some, music is recreation. Music can be catharsis, relaxation, a communicative tool, and more. We are all hardwired for music, and, with training, can harness its power for our benefit and enjoyment in personal enrichment and therapeutic modes.
Engagement with music is a lifelong joy, whether as a performer, a student, or as an active listener. It is never too early or too late to begin. After all, life is a journey, and it should have an awesome soundtrack.
Don't let your song go unsung. Come, and find your unique voice.
