Maria can provide a richly creative therapeutic environment to help explore difficult experiences and memories, as well as developing your strengths and inner resources. She believes in a trauma informed approach with an emphasis on compassion, empathy, and respect, and aims to help the people she works with – whether musical or not – to understand themselves better, build confidence, and improve their relationships.
"Music, as a structured envelope of sound, is probably the most effective and safe opener to the doors of the psyche. It reaches beyond personal defenses to the realities and beauties of the person. Music gives access to the discovery of inner strength, uncovers the potential for creativity, and manifests ways in which life can be lived from a center of inner security."
