A Bit About Me
I have been a board certified music therapist since 2014. My work has been featured by Temasek Review 2017, the Straits Times, Lianhe Wanbao, and Feng Cai Magazine in Malaysia.
My professional practice includes hospice/palliative care, children and adult bereavement, dementia, geriatric care, and mental health settings, both in Singapore and the United States. I have presented in several international and local conferences and trainings. My research interests lie primarily in the pain management, loss and grief issues, and late stage dementia. My research “Music Therapy in Collaboration with Multisensory for Individuals with Later Stages of Dementia” was presented at World Congress in Music Therapy in 2016. I also established of the Bonny Method of Guided Imagery and Music (BMGIM) training and therapy services in Singapore, a niche approach to psychotherapy using programmed music.
