Some days you're just not ready for the camera. Some days you're not ready for your mental close-up. For example, spending the day in a negative loop, ruminating upon all the things you cannot influence, control, or fix. Yes, I am talking about the phenomenon of Monday whether it is Monday or your inner thought-life. Monday my thoughts centered around feeling behind and overwhelmed without resolve.

...more on TUESDAY

Today I was given the best compliment that allowed me to recover. While in session a new client chose to share an affirming phrase, "I like the way your brain works" rekindling my sense of being authentic. I believe another way of saying this could be, the role of being a therapist and being real can be tricky. Some days I need to be comforted that my personal neurodiversity allows me to professionally help others to see things differently.

Thanks Jimmy for capturing this expression and being my support.
Happy Easter!
Mia and I had a little reunion today. To those who enjoyed her company while in sessions you’ll remember her kindness, energy, and cute looks. Seeing her jump up to sit on a lap, or fall asleep always made therapy feel down-to/earth.
Grateful to have a longtime friend in Ms. Jess. See our short story below for inspiration. 😊🙏🏻

What is a music therapist? Here is a great explanation.🎵☺️
I find myself talking to myself daily; does that make me crazy? Ha! Quite the opposite; I discuss the importance of having a nurturing inner voice, rather than an ongoing critique of harsh words. Building your inner strength is a process.

How to get to a music lover's heart - The Chronicle

♥️Happy Valentines Day♥️

How to get to a music lover's heart - The Chronicle Music is known as the language of love. A shared musical taste is one of the most important aspects in romance and, arguably, whether or not there is a shared interest in genres can make or break a relationship.

Rehearsing barely prepares me for the range of development and social interactions unraveling while facilitating a music class. With wellness and developmental revival as priority, I, Anna aim to capture your heart for the remaining 2020 doing so through mindfulness, creativity, promoting self-love, and perhaps rekindling your inner-outer voice as you join me.

If I were a racist...

I prefer reading a two minute, emotionally intelligent take on racism from a musician's perspective.

nateholdermusic.com If I were a racist, I'd teach children that talking about music means, Texture, timbre and tempo. If you can't use these words,you're not a musician. If I were a racist, I'd teach reggae music and Bob Marley, 'Stir It Up', but never 'War'. I might even mention marijuana. If I were a racist, I'd insi...

STRUGGLING, (SCRATCH THAT) RESILIENT MUSICIAN and PROFESSIONAL =)

As the owner of a small psychotherapy and music therapy business I am attempting to stay current and use my resources (time) for development.

One way will be for me to participate in continuing education. Below I have referenced a very specific training that would (hopefully) lift my spirits and challenge my thinking. I hope it will create a sense of grounding. I hope to learn more about what it means to persevere under pressure.

-It is possible that you or someone you care about has been positively impacted by my services and I am grateful you were open to receiving support.

For the cause of continuing as an informed and balanced provider I am asking for financial support.

DONATIONS of any amount accepted.
Funding need: Registration fee ($100.00)

Toddler Tunes:
Tuesday at 10 a.m.
Arrive with your toddler ready to join. What to expect; this month has many elements, but the main theme for March is 🎶Marching out our Madness🎶
This notion really strikes a chord. Being angry is human. Holding angry feelings too long makes us SAD-ANGRY-GUILTY.
For some, our temperament can express anger more easily. Some of us are more comfortable being sad than angry. Still, most of us choose to hide our feelings to avoid others knowing or experiencing that we have these intense, difficult feelings. We even deny when things have bothered us. We are still tolerant when others take advantage of us.
This March I am embracing the Marching out of my Madness. Please join me!!!

This dynamic toddler duo find the xylophone magical! 🎶

SAD SONGS, congratulations to my dear friend, EMSBY who is perpetually saying something profound from the heart. Nate Alex captured the songwriting process beautifully.

This morning I had the pleasure of hanging out with local singer/songwriter, Emily Burdette, as she continued to work on some soon-to-be-released singles. We chatted about the similarities of music and photography and why she thinks "sad songs" have a more profound effect on the listener. Go look her up on Spotify and keep an eye out for her at venues around town. She may or may not be accompanied by Ollie, her faithful dog who, in the low light of morning, looks somewhat similar to Master Splinter.

SEEKING SPONSORSHIP for November's American Music Therapy Association Conference.

When I see AMTA fees and the great resources they provide I spring every few years. Then I confront myself, "Why can't I afford the time and money to attend for continuing education and to learn from other music therapists?" Then I contemplate how I would take un-paid time-off as a professional and imagine taking time away from on-the-job training as a new parent.

Recently, I made plans to move my practice striving to keep in tune, keep in time, and keep earning. It would be awesome to obtain financial support to attend the conference. If you've been blessed with balance and have the means to donate, I hope you'll consider an offering.

musictherapy.org The American Music Therapy Association is a resource and organization dedicated to professional music therapists. Benefits gained from using music as a tool include help educating, reducing stress, and improve the general quality of life.
