“I have been helping children and families journey through life’s challenges for ten years. As a board certified music therapist in New Hampshire, I created The Sonatina Center with the dream of housing several creative art therapy modalities under one roof.
I have a Master’s degree in Music Therapy, and I am dual certified as a music therapist and birth doula. I have completed extensive training through Sound Birthing Music to be a Music Therapy Assisted Childbirth Specialist. I have ten years of experience working with clients with Autism, Cortical Visual Impairments (CVI), Downs Syndrome, Cerebral Palsy, Central Auditory Processing Disorders (CAPD), Expressive Language Disorders, Fragile X Syndrome, Learning Disabilities, Seizure Disorders, Sensory Processing Disorders, Traumatic Brain Injuries and Williams Syndrome. I specialize in helping infants and young children of all abilities build communication, social, motor and cognitive skills necessary to thrive through music and play.
I am passionate about helping families during pregnancy, birth, and the early years while they navigate their new and ever changing family dynamics.”

- Infants and Young Children
