Music has always been a large part of my life.

While studying psychology I quickly became interested in how music can be used therapeutically to assist people in meaningful ways. In 2018 I moved from Australia to join the Raukatauri Music Therapy team, helping to establish and operate the Hawke’s Bay Regional Centre.

In my role I work with clients across the life-span, and run both individual and group sessions across Hawke’s Bay. I particularly enjoy the initial sessions with clients, and seeing their confidence build within each session.
