Experience a music therapy session where we will talk over your‍‍‍ issue, create an intention and spend up to 45 minutes in deep music listening and dialogue. This allows inner wisdom to arise, informing your questions and providing new answers.

For an effective way to deal with the emotions surrounding life choices and transitions, losses, grief, bereavement, illness or spiritual uncertainty, you are warmly invited to Maitri Music Therapy.

With advanced training in the Bonny Method of Music and Imagery (FAMI), and as a licensed professional counselor (LPC), I have been practicing this contemplative therapy for over twenty years.

‍‍‍‍‍‍Music Therapy

The Bonny Method of Music and Imagery

A method using music for psychotherapy and the exploration of consciousness, this approach to music therapy uses guided relaxation and carefully sequenced selections of classical music to access the deep healing potential within. Developed by Helen Bonny, Ph.D. at the Maryland Psychiatric Research Center in the 1970’s, facilitators complete a comprehensive formal training of several years to gain the skills needed to guide clients toward self-transformation and peak well-being. Graduates of the training become “Fellows” of the Association for Music and Imagery (FAMI).

What does Maitri mean? Maitri (pronounc‍‍‍ed “my-tree”) is a Sanskrit word that means “loving-kindness” or “unconditional friendliness.” It refers to unconditional and compassionate acceptance extended toward oneself and others. When maitri is extended to oneself, it is possible to find the way to a source of self-acceptance despite the circumstances, leading to a happier, more joyous life. When maitri is extended to others, their true kindness and loving nature is honored.

The session is a combination of music psychotherapy, meditation, expressive arts and professional counseling. Meditation and the arts are paths that can lead to a deeper understanding and self-awareness found beyond words.
