In 2020, I became a certified mental health technician through the National Association of Cognitive-Behavioral Therapists. I then began my second Master's degree in counseling at Southwestern College/New Earth Institute to eventually practice as a therapist with an emphasis on trauma, grief and renewal. In May, I received my certification as a Grief Counselor. I believe every mentor and teacher should relate empathically to their students and possess professional counseling skills.
We all have a story. And so do the characters in the songs we sing. Storytelling in singing discharges trauma somatically and offers clarity and healing as we process our feelings through someone else's narration. With my vast knowledge of repertoire, I offer a service that invites the singer to explore repressed emotions through sung storytelling.
The Song-Heart Connection offers first rate vocal instruction and somatic experiences in vocal expression and storytelling, exercising holistic health through the understanding of:
*vocal technique *vocal rehabilitation *boundaries
*attachment styles *self-care *self-compassion
*guided inner child work *internal family systems
