I listen.
I make music. 
Therapeutic Shamanic Listener.

Schedule a session for me to hear you - I can listen.
I am also a musician. Next gig info here.

Would you like to just be heard?

Send an email to to schedule an appointment. Let's have you be really heard.
My therapeutic listening work can be ongoing, can be a one-time event, or every week, whatever you feel works best for you. I have a sliding scale, $30-$120 for 50 minutes of listening; use your conscience. I do not take insurance. We can extend or shorten the session for your comfort.

For several years now friends or colleagues have been saying, "I've never told that to anyone before!" and so finally I am offering my therapeutic listening as a service. I am become healer. 

There is something about the way I listen - see if it helps you. I am not about giving advice, but instead truly hearing your depths. I am active in this process, and engaged with your communication. Therefore, you may well find your own advice, the True Thing for you. I have had people remember big moments that they'd blocked out, or arrive at deep truths. 

Would you like to truly be heard? If you cry, I will welcome your tears. If you get angry, I will witness your anger. I am a supportive friendly listener. The atmosphere for us is comfortable and private. This is a soundly confidential relationship. 

Here is a review of sorts: "All the nurturing mothers of the world came together in your voice and sang to me". ~Angy Dieckmann, Washington DC
Here's another: "How do you get me to say all these things?" ~Skwerrell, drummer, Washington DC
My answer to her: I don't. I just listen. You wanted to be heard.

My training is in shamanic healing, with Mary Tyrtle Rooker, Rena Yount, Sundance Metelsky Oehser, Rose Diana Khalsa, Tom Cowan, and Larry Peters. By far, above & beyond any other teacher I've ever spent time with, my teacher in being a healer is Tyrtle. I am also a sweat house water pourer, and have held/led/participated in many ritual ceremonies. I have done The Work of Katie Byron workshops, Human Awareness Institute workshops, many Universal Temple of Spirits ceremonies, and much much more.

I am ready to extend my own shamanic holistic healing from my own trauma/rocky roads/injuries-of-all-sorts outward, into the world, and help YOU. Music is one of my primary life's purposes, and I create both concerts and woven song in circle.  As I get a more solid calling about how to offer woven song or other ceremonies as ways to be of service, I will update this site.
 I am in an intensive course of study on healing from which I graduate in December 2014. Tyrtle says GO. OFFER HEALING.

My many many friends say, "You could offer this for pay."

I perform live music in a variety of venues and festivals. You can contact me via this website or at

I love playing with others. 
I also specialize in creating Woven Song in groups. It works well in fire circles, but your living room works too. We can record if you like. I have countless songs, but we can weave your own song (or create one for you) if there are at least 5 singers present. Wait till you see

This was recorded October 2012, me and my sometimes musical partner, the beloved Jaqui MacMillan of Drum For Joy.  Yippee!!
