Journey Into Wholeness
Hello. I’m a board certified music therapist, specializing in hospice and palliative care music therapy.
After 10 years of working with hospice patients and families in the U.S, I recently returned to Japan. In the last few months I’ve thought about what I’d do next while trying to adjust to my new life. Nothing really came to me until a good friend gave me an advice – write about my experiences as a music therapist. As it turned out, it was what I had always wanted to do.
When you have an unusual occupation such a hospice music therapist, people always ask what exactly it is that you do and why you do it, which gives me an opportunity to reflect on my work and how to best explain it to people. In this blog I’ll write about music therapy, end-of-life care, and grief & loss, in a way that people outside the profession can understand and engage. My hope is to share with you what I’ve learned from this unique work with the dying.
Thank you for your interest in my blog. I look forward to seeing you again here.
