Nice to meet you!
I believe it takes a community to support those in need and that embracing our diversity only makes the results stronger.
Bees represent this concept remarkably well; when we collaborate on important work, we can produce an outcome that is sweet and beneficial, not just for ourselves, but for many across the world. However, achieving this also requires a level of authenticity and courage. And what better way to foster authenticity and courage than through music therapy?
With that in mind, it just made sense to create Bee You Music Therapy. This initiative draws inspiration from my late friend Henry Setton's commitment to normalizing living one's own authenticity. It was also nurtured into fruition by me, a joyfully introverted, queer, Black woman who wants to proclaim from every microphone that you too are worthy and deserving of living a fulfilling life, even if the road you take isn't the typical one.
In other words, you don't have to conform to a narrow definition of 'normal' to embrace all that life has to offer. Your journey toward your goals can be as unique as necessary to align with your authentic self.
In The Community
Bee You Music Therapy is a welcoming and anti-hate service that remains acutely aware of the inherent and systemic disadvantages faced by immigrants, lower SES communities, LGBTQIA2S+, minorities, neuro-diverse individuals, and those with intersectional identities when seeking access to quality mental health and rehabilitative services.
In response to these challenges, I offer flexible contracting options, allowing services to be brought directly to you or your facility. Additionally, I provide online sessions through platforms like Zoom and collaborate with various non-profits.
I am committed to ensuring accessibility by supplying necessary instruments for sessions and offering a range of accommodations.
If you are interested in my services but have concerns about affordability or access, please don't hesitate to reach out for more information. Your well-being matters!
