It is a joy for us to witness time and again how through listening presence and the beautiful sounds of the harp, people are transformed in their spirit to greater healing and wholeness. We say that the harp is a physician of love.
Healing Music CDs: Gentle Rain from Heaven, Water from the Well

Our Mission Statement: to create the sound of beauty and peace in a gentle and caring way and to receive each person as a Vessel of Light.

Employment: I offer harp therapy for patients, their families, and staff at Marymount Hospital and Medina Hospital – two Cleveland Clinic hospitals. I also play therapeutic music for patients and staff at the Trudell Center, a Behavioral Health facility connected with Marymount Hospital. Our work in these institutions is contracted. We also play at Holy Family Hospice, Parma Ohio, and for the memorial services of Akron Children’s Hospital and Visiting Nurses Hospice, an affiliation with Akron General Medical Center, Akron, Ohio.

…“Providing patients with the opportunity for harp therapy is part of Marymount Hospital’s intention to address the spiritual and emotional needs of people who are suffering. What we’re about is serving patients in a holistic way. It’s not just that we’re going to treat the tumor or broken bone or disease. We’re going to treat the person. There’s not one person on earth who does not respond to music. St. Francis was a music lover. This reflects his spirit.” – David Kribel, Vice President of Operations and Programs of the Cleveland Clinic Center for Behavioral Health / Director of Trudell Center for Behavioral Health, Marymount Hospital.

“Music and rhythm find their way into the secret places of the soul.” ~ Plato
