  • Self-care neglect runs rampant among a large proportion of performing arts professionals and their organizations.

  • Studies show over 90% of orchestral musicians suffer from chronic pain and stress in secret due to lack of resources, education, and fear of risking their reputation and career.

  • Repetitive strain, asymmetrical anatomical demands, stressful deadlines, performance anxiety, negative mindset loops, and the lack of accessible health care keep them from fully thriving.

The most effective and highly customizable method available today for musicians and executives. With my 8-week program or on-going mentorship, I lead clients through a system I've refined for decades for total revitalization of body, mind, & career.

Holistic Health Consultations

We assess your physical, mental, emotional, spiritual, career, home, financial, and social pillars of your life to take an honest look at what's working and what is not: then formulate a plan to bring it all into balance.

Gestalt Therapy

I can not recommend this process enough. By far the most potent, powerful, and proactive tool I use with my clients, I will help you rewire subconscious programming and limiting beliefs that have been holding you back for far too long.

Group Consulting

For small ensembles to entire orchestras.
There's nothing more potent than the progress made when you u
p-level your quality of life and music together.

Wellness/Private Events

Chair massage, Thai massage, Yoga classes, and Holistic consultations for local businesses, professional music organizations, and private events. Incredibly convenient and effective for those that sit for the majority of the day, or are hosting a private engagement looking for a wide array of options.


Education of self-care practices for students and professionals alike. This is an indispensable avenue to provide large groups tools to bridge this gap between surviving and thriving as they progress through their career.
