I am a Sound Healing therapist, Yoga Nidra facilitator, and Advanced Grief Recovery Specialist®.  Originally a drummer hailing from New York City, with roots in Brittany (France), I now live in the beautiful countryside of Ireland.  

After years of performing and recording as an artist, it became evident to me that my exploration of music, drums, and sounds would naturally and effortlessly combine with my practice of Mediation and Yoga, for both deep relaxation and physical health purposes as well as for spiritual development and emotional well-being. Sound baths and other vibrational sounds can be more than a mere means to relaxation, they can take you on a journey of healing and lead you to physical and emotional relief and balance.

Likewise, processing then surpassing abuse, grief, and trauma are not just mere words and conceptualizing to me. That is my experience of many years.  My story.  My journey. It shapes the "pay it forward" mission of care I am lead to pursue. Fortunate to still be alive today, my sound healing and grief recovery practice is experience-based, care-driven, and my life purpose.     

Sound baths, and musical recordings of mine or from musicians I partnered with are available on this website, to listen to or purchase.  I am available for private, semi-private, or group sound healing sessions and soundbaths, with or without meditation. Please inquire for more information and details.

I studied Integral Sound Healing with the Sound Healing Academy, Integrative Restoration meditation with Richard C. Miller, suffering and grief healing with the Grief Recovery Institute, drums with Joe Cusatis (Chet Baker, Marian McPartland), Elvin Jones (John Coltrane), Joe Morello (Dave Brubeck), and Barry Altschul (Chick Corea), percussions with worldwide musicians, and music theory and vocals with soprano Patrizia Cioffi (Italian International Orchestra, Bratislava Chamber Choir, Pavel Prochazka).


Be healed.  Be well.  Be blessed.
