Board-Certified Music Therapist (MT-BC) since 2011
Neurologic Music Therapist (NMT) since 2012
I am a music therapist with a passion for learning and educating about the human brain, as well as how it can change and adapt using creativity as the catalyst.
I incorporate neuroscience into my practice, as well as my research, to make sure everything I offer is functional, effective, and based in science. I am passionate about interdisciplinary research and practice, and have spent my career collaborating with occupational therapists, speech language pathologists, neuropsychologists, and other specialists to provide the best possible care for my clients.
I have been writing independent pilot studies since 2014 and working on interdisciplinary research teams since 2018. I have created several creative arts therapy and neurologic music therapy programs at hospitals and schools, and I have provided therapy for children with disabilities for eight years.

Board-Certified Music Therapist (MT-BC) since 2017
I have been a board-certified music therapist since 2017 and have worked in school settings as well as private clinical settings. I’ve been teaching piano lessons for over 8 years; my music therapy training has informed my teaching and vice versa.
I’m passionate about creating a success-oriented therapeutic environment where my clients feel seen and have fun while working towards their clinical goals. I meet my therapy clients and piano students with flexibility and always aim to customize my approach to their unique needs and goals.
I am so excited to be offering services to my community in Brooklyn, and hope to increase access to quality music therapy and lessons in the area.
As music therapists devoted to a humanistic and client-centered approach, we teach and provide therapy with the whole child in mind – their strengths, challenges, and individuality. All of our therapeutic services are backed by science and replicable data. We are proud Brooklyn residents, and find meaningful fulfillment in serving our fellow Brooklyn families!
