A focus of my research is the interdisciplinary connections between the fields of music therapy, community music, and music education. My doctoral research examined musical performances’ affordances as they pertain to identity development and relationships. I am particularly interested in community music therapy, anti-oppressive models of practice, music-centered psychotherapy in mental health settings, and students’ experiences of personal growth through musical learning.
I provide research supervision for Master of Music Therapy students. If you are from a different program or faculty and are interested in inviting me to supervise your research, I invite you to be in touch.
Teaching, supervising, learning from and collaborating with students at Laurier has been and continues to be incredibly inspiring and fulfilling. It is a true highlight of my work!
