A sound space is where all kinds of music, sounds, and words can be created and heard without judgment.
I am a music therapist and licensed creative arts therapist in NY State and I work mainly with adults.
Music may connect you to parts of yourself that are difficult to access with words alone, including feelings and bodily sensations. Working in music may touch on otherwise dormant memories, deepen your awareness of your inner world, and help you better access your strengths and resources through imaginative and creative endeavors. Music may also help you connect with people in your life in new, authentic, and emotionally honest ways. If you have a wounded relationship to music — such as music performance anxiety or other traumatic experiences around music — working with music within a trusted therapeutic relationship may be a way to invite healing into musical and other areas of your life.
You may feel like you have lost touch with the playful and spontaneous parts of yourself. Music and the creative arts are natural resources for us as humans; one central aspect of a music therapist’s role is to expand a person’s access to creativity for ongoing health and wellbeing.
I also have advanced training in the Bonny Method of Guided Imagery and Music – a transformative method of consciousness exploration. Using this method, the therapist invites you into a relaxed, non-ordinary state of consciousness, in which you will listen to specially chosen, recorded music. The therapist will be your guide as you explore your imagery, memories, physical sensations, and feeling states, toward increased health and integration.
