My Approach

Cognitve Behavioural Music Therapy (CBT-Music)


Cognitive behavioral therapy based music to reinforce and modify thoughts and behaviors.




Guided Imagery and Music (GIM)


GIM experiences are usually reflections of you and your life as you know it. You may have important insights that validate your sense of who you are and who you can become. Together we create a space for you to gain a deeper sense of connection with yourself.




Analytical Music Therapy


A combination of concepts of psychoanalysis, and music therapy techniques to express and reflect upon unconscious thoughts. A creative process that utilizes music and words to facilitate dialogue between the conscious and unconscious/repressed thoughts and feelings.





Each session is a two-way process between the client and therapist. After an initial assessment, I devise a treatment plan that determines the course of the sessions.

I am deeply involved throughout the treatment and cater to the client’s needs, tasks and objectives while monitoring overall progress. Music therapy is not an instant process, but each session allows for deep insight and has its own rewards.

If you can use music to slip past the pain and gather insight into the workings of someone else’s mind, you can begin to fix a problem
