My name is Elaine (she/her). I am a Counselling Therapist (ACTA) and Certified Music Therapist (MTA). I have had the opportunity to work with people of all ages and abilities; from preschoolers, teens and adults with developmental disabilities, adults in ICU and neuro-rehab, as well as seniors in long term care. Through those experiences, I've found that I love hearing people's individual stories about their connections with music as they relate to who they are. 

Through counselling and the use of music and its qualities to effect change within a therapeutic relationship, I work with people who want to:

  • Explore and understand their emotions in a safe and non-judgmental space

  • Explore self-expression in a non-traditional way

  • Are trying to adjust to any kind of change, big or small

  • Find ways to use music more intentionally to improve overall wellness

  • Want to find more meaning and purpose in their lives

So, I am here to listen. I am also here to provide opportunities to maximize your potential for change and growth. My practice is music-centred, humanistic, and strengths-based, drawing from various therapy approaches that might best fit your needs. I strive to be anti-racist, anti-oppressive, and culturally responsive. I also bring my lived experiences in the world as a second-generation Chinese-Canadian and third-culture-kid (TCK).

In a music therapy session, we may talk, sing, improvise, write and listen to music.​ I will support you in order to make your experience a fulfilling one. No previous musical training or experience necessary. Read more about my therapy services here.

I also offer master-level clinical supervision for music therapists.
