Coping with Life in the Arts Industry

The work we do as artist can be a painstaking task. The challenges we face in a competitive, elitist and often toxic industry often go unnoticed by those around us, especially those who consume our art. Tending to your wellbeing as an artist is fundamental. Your art cannot exist if you are not well enough to make it.

My goal is to bring wellness counselling into the arts while also holding a firm understanding that there are many aspect of the industry which need updating and changing before we can see any real change. Still, we can care for ourselves and advocate for our welfare no matter what.

Somatic Therapy for Performance

In addition to counselling and coaching modalities, I also offer private lessons. My studio is inherently rooted in a trauma informed and motivational change model, which means that as a teacher, I am always seeking informed consent, co-collaboration and nervous system regulation for both myself and students. I believe that my students are in the driver's seat of their artistic career, I am simply there to help navigate. 

For students seeking technical or fundamental advice, I teach French Horn (all levels) and Piano (beginner/intermediate).

For students seeking to be part of a trauma informed, emotionally and artistically rooted studio, I accept students of all instruments and levels with the disclosure that we will work primarily on playing from love, health, creativity and spirituality. I teach students how to set up a healthy practice, incorporate mindfulness and mental skills, explore their body while playing and ultimately dig into their artistic authenticity.

For folks who are recovering from trauma and would like to begin learning an instrument, please keep an eye out for my Healing Arts Programs coming soon!
