    #81 - Navigating the Holidays and Looking Towards 2021

    As we head into the final weeks of 2020, Jaime and I are checking in with each other to compare notes on our families, businesses, and alllll the feelings during this holiday season.

    In this episode, we share the highs and lows of business ownership right now, and talk about how we are planning ahead (or not) and handling the transition into a new year.

    #80 - How We're Coping Personally & Professionally in Fall 2020

    We are now 8 months into the COVID-19 pandemic; that makes 8 months of pivoting, adapting, and overcoming challenges both at home and at work.

    I'm checking in once again with co-host Jaime Lawrence, owner of Harmony Garden Music Therapy Services, and we're sharing updates on family life, business ownership, and ourselves in general as we continue to be affected on all fronts by the pandemic.

    #79 - Reopening Our Businesses & Making School Decisions in the Time of COVID-19

    #79 - Reopening Our Businesses & Making School Decisions in the Time of COVID-19

    A lot has changed since I last spoke with my co-host, Jaime Lawrence (owner of Harmony Garden Music Therapy), back in April. The pandemic is still in full force, which has greatly impacted just about every aspect of our lives.

    In this follow-up episode, we're discussing the current state of our businesses since reopening our physical doors, and we also tackle the very timely issue of returning to school. Jaime and I both share our families' decisions for our own children.

    #78 - Music Therapy, Motherhood & Business Ownership in the Time of COVID-19

    #78 - Music Therapy, Motherhood & Business Ownership in the Time of COVID-19

    It's been over a year since I released an episode of the Guitars & Granola Bars podcast, but when my co-host from last season, Jaime Lawrence, suggested recording one to chat about how we are managing during this global pandemic, I was immediately on board.

    In this special COVID-19 edition of the podcast, we talk about how we have pivoted our businesses, the ways in which we are providing services, and what life with kids at home 24/7 looks like.

    #77 - Our Favorite Accomplishments of 2018

    #77 - Our Favorite Accomplishments of 2018

    This is the final episode in our current season, during which I’ve been so lucky to have Jaime Lawrence as a co-host. I hope you’ve enjoyed her added perspective here on the podcast just as much as I have!

    Since we’re making our way towards the end of 2018, Jaime and I thought it would be fun to share our favorite accomplishments of the year, both personally and professionally. This was such a fun episode to record, and it made me excited to think about all that I want to accomplish in 2019.

    #76 - All Things Halloween!

    #76 - All Things Halloween!

    Halloween is coming, and we are ready! So of course we had to dedicate an entire episode to how we celebrate this special day at home -- including decorations, our family’s costumes, and favorite traditions -- and at work -- the songs we sing, how we integrate Halloween into our groups and sessions, and ways we get festive in our workplaces.

    To be honest, Halloween is not my favorite day of the year, as I share in the episode, but when you have kids and work with children, you really just have to embrace it. If you’re like me, I hope this episode helps you do that, and if you are already a Halloween enthusiast, then you’ll be even more pumped up after listening!

I love this podcast!

I just recently discovered this podcast, and I can't stop listening! I am not a mother yet, but still feel that I can relate to every guest, and feel inspired after every episode. What a great example of resilient and strong women that represent our beloved profession!

Rachel is inspiring!

I love everything Rachel does - The way she is able to create a safe space for music therapists (or anyone listening) is AMAZING. She is disciplined, positive, creative, relatable, and really just an awesome person. Thank you Rachel for shining a bright light in our world!
