Our language is full of beautiful idioms such as "striking a chord" and "resonating" with someone. This is no coincidence. I believe music creates a bridge of understanding and sharing of emotion and life-experience between therapist and listener. This is what I strive for in every session: an authentic connection through the sharing of sound."
