Why I Became A Music Therapist

 Growing up I always had a love for music, creativity, self expression, and the neuroscience behind it all. Music has always been my passion. Growing up I did not have the most traditional childhood and was in and out of different facilities which exposed me to the profession of music therapy. I learned later on in life in my collegiate career I was struggling with a learning disability; Dyslexia. These experiences fostered a sense of compassion, empathy, and humanism within me. They electrified the need for me to stand as an advocate for neurodiversity and trauma informed care. Ultimately, it sparked my interest in helping children and adolescents like myself  in the future. Since then I have made great strides to be where I am today and use my niche skills, knowledge, and experience with mental health, neurodiversity, and trauma informed care to help others receive the support they need.
