From Our Website

She has a Bachelor's Degree in music therapy with a minor in Psychology from Montclair State University, a Master's Degree in Psychology with a concentration in music therapy from Antioch University and is a Board Certified music therapist. Since 1982, Jamie has worked in hospitals, schools, nursing homes and community settings, providing music therapy for clients throughout the lifespan with developmental disabilities, acute and chronic psychiatric needs, medical needs, issues of aging and hospice, grief and loss, as well as offering sessions for wellness and personal/spiritual growth in her private practice.


Sessions include both active and passive aspects of music therapy. Active forms of music therapy include singing, improvisation, song writing and playing instruments. Passive aspects of music therapy include music listening, relaxation and imagery to music, song lyric interpretation and discussion. No music skills or knowledge are necessary to benefit from music therapy; the music therapist uses her knowledge of music, psychology and medicine to adapt the music or instruments to each client's individual needs and level of experience.
