I can safely say that I’ve has always had a creative spirit, and I am deeply passionate about music’s power to help transcend differences and bring people together. Music has always been a companion in my life: as a child running through the laundry hanging to dry pretending to be on stage, singing Peruvian lullabies with my mom to help my little brother get to sleep, putting on elaborate musical shows during family dinner parties, or humming my own soothing songs. I’ve made a career out of this love of music, as a board-certified music therapist, and am thrilled to be able to share in the power of music making as a tool for learning. I would love to assist you in accessing the power of music whether you are at home, in a clinic or classroom setting!
