Entrepreneur Music Therapist in Action!

Entrepreneur Announcement!

The time is here! I decided to resigned from my position at Essentia St. Mary’s Hospice as Music Therapist. My plan is to work my music therapy business full-time. I am very excited! Scared? Of course. This day has been coming for awhile. I was never sure when or if it would ever come. I was concerned about losing our family medical/dental coverage, retirement benefits as well as that steady paycheck. The fear of jumping in with both feet with the possibility of not being successful was a very difficult thought I struggled with for a long time.

But, for whatever reason, the reality of resigning from the security of that job I had for almost 10 years started to feel more realistic. Some people would think I’m CRAZY! But, most people have been so supportive and encouraging. Those in my life that have known I’ve operated Access Music Therapy, llc over the last six years along side of working at Essentia have been a great source of support with my decision. I’m at a place where I believe this will be a beautiful thing.
