THE POOR DOCTOR
Mending the world one note at a time!
Can doctors really be poor? Well, this one is. Come explore the magic of music, medicine, and money. I’m a music therapist here to support you on your educational and professional journey.
Personalized Attention for All Your Needs
As a music therapy student, I struggled transitioning from student to employee. Balancing relationships, financial responsibilities, and my new job was a lot of change all at once. The straw that broke my back was the board certification exam!!!
No music therapist should ever feel alone which is why, I'm here. From music therapy, to medicine, to money, my goal is to give guidance so that you can become a wonderful music therapist!
“Our auditory systems [and] our nervous systems are indeed exquisitely tuned for music. Underlying this is the extraordinary tenacity of musical memory, so that much of what is heard during one’s early years may be “engraved” on the brain for the rest of one’s life”
(Sacks, 2007, p. xi).
