This guide—literally decades in the making—can help you reduce behavior and attitude issues BEFORE they start. It's based on 20+ years of working with challenging people of all kinds.

I’ve been training people in the "helping professions" since 2010, including those who work in recovery, mental health, education, social work, autism and intellectual-developmental disabilities.

Here are a few of the hundreds organizations I’ve had the privilege of working with:

✅ TEDx

✅ Veterans Administration
✅ Pyramid Healthcare
✅ Resources for Human Development (RHD)
✅ National Council for Therapeutic Recreation

My mission is to help people relieve their own suffering through interactive music and wellness strategies.

I'd love the opportunity to show you how.
