The Creative Therapy Umbrella was created in hopes of providing resources and inspiration to therapists working with children and their families. It’s also in part a collection of my own journey as a music therapist moving towards a larger creative arts therapy practice. I hope that through my own learning, this website and podcast can be a resource for others who have found themselves expanding their practice within the expressive and creative arts. Reach out and let me know what you feel would be helpful for you as you continue your therapy journey!

The name “umbrella’ was chosen due to the wide range of creative approaches, theories, interventions, styles, and research that inspires my own work. I deeply believe in a client-centered, humanistic, and individualized approach when working with children, siblings, and their families. My hope is that having one space for a wide variety of therapy styles will provide easy access for a variety of professionals.


This blog focuses on supporting children and families in a variety of ways. There is a heavy focus on creative therapies and mental health, but we also cover supporting skillsets such as academic, communication, physical, sensory, cognitive, and more.
