I have worked with geriatrics for over 35 years combined as a social worker,music therapist,and recreation therapist in all areas of geriatric functioning: l/t and s/t rehab, dementia, adult day care, hospice, home care, senior center. I have performed in over 85 geriatric facilities, presented at conferences, written articles about music therapy, healing, and holistic health and wellness.

I also consult as a music therapist for hospice, nursing homes (vent unit, dementia, long- and short-term rehab), private patients.
Additional services: conference presenter, writer, staff training, private music teacher (piano, keyboard, guitar, flute, violin), performer in geriatric facilities, and healer.
My approach is client centered and holistic, employing alternative healing modalities such as EFT, TAT, aromatherapy, crystals, and intuitive counseling. I also emphasize the importance of good nutrition. (Note: Please check with your physician or health care professional as well.)
I also speak fluent Hebrew, a fair Spanish, and a little Yiddish.
