‍‍‍I have always had a passion for music, art, and nature. For me, they all seem to blend into the same inspirational oneness. Throughout my life, I have followed these passions in various ways. Years ago as a ‍‍‍young woman, I asked myself what I wanted to become in life, and I found the answer that came to me was..."I want to be wise." I am still learning how to be wise... and wonder if you are still learning too? If so, please join me for a session or event, designed to help you find wisdom in daily life.

My office is located in beautiful Evergreen, Colorado, in the Buffalo Park office building. The location is within walking distance of Evergreen Lake and the unique downtown businesses and restaurants.

I hold music sessions in my office using a special "sound table" and audio equipment., I hold meditation sessions in person as well as by phone and online, in order to connect with individuals worldwide.

Schedule a private session by appointment. Contact me with questions.  I look forward to working with you.

I have certification as a Grief Recovery Specialist®, and have worked with individuals in private practice managing loss and bereavement in many forms, including life transitions and death of a spouse.

Drawing on my music therapy training, I developed the Musixspa® holistic music wellness program, and have presented it nationally and internationally, including the World Congress of Music Therapy in 2001.

In addition to a holistic orientation, my training as a Fellow In the Bonny Method of Music & Imagery has prepared me to work with individuals on deeper issues using music psychotherapy and mandala drawing in a clinical approach. I have found this method to be very effective in both clearing blockages and resolving challenges. See: www.ami-bonnymethod.org
