“Confessions of a Music Therapist”
But in today’s episode, I want to address a topic that I haven’t talked much about publicly, hence this week’s title. The confession I’m about to make is one that I’ve held back from sharing because honestly, I’ve been a little scared to, especially amongst my fellow music therapists.
I’ve been putting it off for a while, but I feel like there’s no better time than now. I started this podcast because I wanted a place to have honest conversations about the intersection of my professional and personal lives, and that’s exactly what today’s episode is.
