Kate is looking forward to her partnership with Harmony in Motion and working with patients and families to address physical, social, emotional, communication, and cognitive needs through music. Kate draws on her extensive background in social work, music therapy, and yoga to support wellness in playful and engaging classes. She has found that humor and human connection are vital for finding peace, joy, and personal growth no matter the challenges we face. Kate has a gift of listening to and interacting with people so they feel seen and heard. Her music therapy sessions allow participants to experience their own creative expression while having fun and connecting with others.
