Psychodrama, Sociodrama, and Group Work

Music Therapy


Composition and Performance

        I am a Boston/Shanghai-based artist, Board-Certified Music Therapist (MT-BC), psychodramatist, multi-instrumentalist, composer, and a Berklee alumna. I play, compose, teach, and utilize music clinically, as well as pursuing field recordings.
I believe that music is a crucial way of expression, emotional communication, spiritual practice, life transformation, community building, and the catalyst for social change. 
        My mission is to support my students, clients, and audience to remove obstacles from their lives, find their unique voices, express themselves freely, reach their goals, become an authentic person, and build communities in which everyone can thrive. 
                      Check out my expertise and experiences as a therapist.
