Performance Anxiety Specialty

In addition to my training and experience as a licensed clinical social worker I have a Master of Music degree in performance and 30+ years experience as a professional musician and teacher. For 27 years I was Associate Principal Cellist with the Utah Symphony Orchestra and for 25 years was Adjunct Professor of Music at the University of Utah.

In the University's School of Music, I taught a class in Managing Performance Anxiety for Musicians as well as applied cello and chamber music. I continue to maintain an active studio as a cello teacher. With expertise in these disciplines, I bring a unique perspective to the treatment of performance anxiety for musicians.

Additionally, the principles I convey easily generalize to actors, public speakers, athletes, and other public presenters. Whether you're a student or a professional, I can help you reach your highest potential and optimum performance level. Please contact me to arrange an appointment for individual or group therapy or coaching, classes, or seminars.
