I get how complex it is to balance creativity, entrepreneurship, self care and the practicalities of life. Stress, overwhelm and managing the hustle can leave little energy for the things that matter most.

Do you identify with:

  • Exhaustion and being on the brink mentally

  • Crippling inner voices that destroy your self worth

  • Lack artistic inspiration or challenge

  • Having trouble feeling balanced between professional and personal obligations

  • Feeling alone, without support and a lack of direction

I help professional musicians clarify their goals and take charge of their lives to reignite their passion for making music.

As a certified Positive Psychology-based life coach I can help you get past the stress and overwhelm to design a gratifying personal and professional path that’s rooted in your values, strengths, and what’s truly meaningful for you.

What’s Positive Psychology? Positive Psychology is the scientific study of what makes life most worth living. Established in 1998 at the University of Pennsylvania by former president of the American Psychological Association Martin Seligman, Positive Psychology examines what it takes to live the good life through cultivating more positivity, a higher sense of engagement, thriving relationships, developing deeper meaning, high achievement and mental and physical vitality.

Through our work together you will:

  • Find your distinct professional path and stop second guessing yourself

  • Eliminate any crippling inner voices and become firmly rooted in your worthiness as an artist

  • Get organized and prioritize your time and schedule

  • Make a self care plan to eliminate burnout and exhaustion

  • Reconnect with your true artistic identity and help you design a life bringing you joy and deeper satisfaction.

My Story:

I owe the discovery of my passion for music to Phil Donohue. The story goes that when I was 4, I watched several Suzuki violin kids perform on Donohue’s TV show, and after they finished, I exclaimed,

”That’s what I want to do!”

I never let up on that until I started music lessons at 6, first on piano, then violin at 10, and at 15, switched to viola.

I ended up attending the Eastman School of Music, was a Tanglewood fellow, freelanced with the Minnesota Orchestra, and was recruited to study at the Yale School of Music with a full scholarship in my early to mid 20’s.

Throughout that period I believed I HAD to win an audition with a major symphony orchestra and that if I didn’t, I’d be a failure.

I kept taking orchestral auditions and battled severe performance anxiety. I assumed that I had to do one thing professionally for success and in order to do that, I believed I had to change myself to win. I was determined to solve my audition anxiety problem and in the process, ended up fueling a passion for psychology. Over the next several years studying personal development, taking workshops, and experimenting with various modalities I discovered the field of Positive Psychology and was hooked. My mindset changed, my view was broadened, and curiosity, optimism and possibility became the positive fuel propelling me forward. My journey of self discovery taught me that I didn’t need to choose one path and didn’t have to change myself, I just had to BE myself and could articulate all of who I am through my work.

For me, once I let go of my identity as an orchestral musician, I realized that I can define whatever my career path looks like and experience balance, contentment, joy and achievement. Especially through COVID, which gave me and countless others an unexpected gift: the opportunity to re-evaluate how we want to articulate our talents while connecting with what matters most at the same time.

As artists, our work is a direct reflection of who we are and what we stand for. So let’s make sure that YOU are doing what you want creatively while rooted in what’s most important and make it REALLY WORK for ALL OF YOU.

It’s time to stop trudging through the mud!! Let’s get you reconnected with what’s meaningful to you so you can feel energized and confident in your musical and personal life.
