My Approach

I specialize in quality programs for memory care. I believe that it is important to interact with every client at a meaningful level. Not everyone communicates the same way and I provide a bridge through musical interactions.

During my time as a Music Therapist and Life Enrichment Coordinator I built programs for the residents that helped them connect to one another through music and non-music based goals. My music programs were goal-oriented to the needs of the residents: improved moods, minimization of falls, increased memory recall, socialization, lowered pain levels, increased physical activity and more. Throughout these programs I worked to ensure each resident had a meaningful experience or interaction.

My goal is to take what I learned in the nursing home and bring it to individuals and communities throughout the Twin Cities. I will work with the Life Enrichment/Activities Department, care providers, and families to identify your music needs. My piano, guitar and singing skills can be utilized for both large and small group settings. I want to work with you to identify how I can best support your mission.
