Shannon is a master’s-level, nationally board-certified music therapist and facilitator of the Bonny Method of Guided Imagery and Music (GIM). Her curiosity of music’s innate influence over our emotions and healing potential encouraged her quest through a Bachelor’s of Music Therapy at Eastern Michigan University, Master’s of Science (in Music Therapy) at Radford University (Virginia), and GIM training through Atlantis Institute for Music and Consciousness (AIMC). She offers GIM sessions in both individual and group settings. She has experience with using GIM for exploring relationships with self or others, life transitions, grief/loss, emotions, internal strength, or connection with one’s higher source. Available evenings and weekends.
