I believe all of us ultimately have the answers to our problems. But sometimes those answers are clouded by negative emotions, trauma, anxiety or insecurity. I can offer you a safe, non-judgmental space to share your feelings and help you work through any past pain and lift the fog so you can have clarity and make the best decisions for your life, career and your relationships with your band.

I passionately believe in change. I have dedicated my life and have chosen this path to help people improve their lives and find the happiness that they deserve.

A band is like a marriage. To have any successful and healthy relationship, you need your partners to be committed, have integrity and to feel safe to communicate their honest feelings. Using the family systems approach, which looks at your role in your family of origin and the unhealthy patterns, fighting styles, communication, and family secrets that you have brought into your current relationships, together, we will establish new, healthier patterns.

Therapy is customized to suit each client's unique individual or group needs. I integrate several different therapeutic approaches and interventions including CBT, Narrative, EFT, Solutions Focused, Strategic, Gestalt, Career Counseling and Psychoeducation.

  • Anxiety/Depression
  • Artists/Musicians and Bands
  • Band Crisis/Breakups

As a seasoned professional with three decades of experience in the music industry, I've navigated the complexities of being a recording artist, musician, and performer, while managing my own record label across the US and the UK.

My experience includes touring, from intimate club gigs to major arenas. I'm intimately familiar with the nuances of stage fright, the pressures of relentless touring, the intricate process of releasing records, and the emotional challenges, including anxiety and depression, that often accompany artists after tours conclude.

My journey equips me with a deep understanding and empathy for the struggles faced by artists, musicians, and bands, regardless of whether they are internationally recognized icons or emerging talents seeking to make their mark in the music world.


Clients appreciate my direct approach, my empathetic nature and my positivity :)
