I'm a music therapist (Licensed Creative Arts Therapist #593-01) of over 20 years. I'm divide my time between being a music therapist at the Hebrew Home in Yonkers and in private practice in Manhattan. I am equally good at treating children and adults, applying music to improve motor, social, cognitive, and communication skills. I am a Neurologic Music Therapy Fellow and have been researching the effect of drumming with patients with Parkinson's disease and survivors of stroke. I am passionate about using music to address the whole person, coming from a strength-based and humanistic approach to help clients achieve their goals through joy and fun.
