About Zoe

Hi, I'm Zoe! I grew up in Shepherdstown, WV, and I'm so excited to be back working for the communities in which I was raised. I have 6 years of experience working as a music therapist and clinical supervisor in a private practice. In addition to music therapy, I have a deep love for dogs, Dolly Parton, gardening, and the history of hip hop. I believe that therapy is a very vulnerable experience and participants should have the right to direct their own goals and be treated the way that they want to be treated.

Approach to Therapy

I believe that a therapist's role is not to fix something broken. Instead, it's to build a relationship with participants so that desires for growth, rest, and/or play can be identified and supported. My work is informed by critical theories and social justice movements such as disability justice, queer theory, and critical race theory.

I am grateful for all the mentors and activists who have shaped my learning including Kerry Devlin, Hakeem Leonard, and Anthony Meadows.
