    Episode 17 - Interview with Music Therapist, Catherine Mayr - What is Music Therapy & How It Can Help to Heal

    Take a listen to my conversation with Catherine Mayr who is a qualified and certified music therapist. Throughout this episode we discuss the concept of music therapy and how it can be instrumental in helping people who suffer from depression, anxiety, trauma and so many other mental and physical struggles. We also talk about how music can be a trigger for some so as a music therapist, there is a fine line between how music can be beneficial and how music can be a trigger. Did you know that certain types of music is designed and played in restaurants, malls, doctor's offices, etc. to impact the neurons in your brain while visiting these establishments!

    The topic of music therapy was so fascinating to me as you begin to think about how music impacts our lives in so many ways. I hope this episode resonates with you too!

    Take a listen to Beck's story of abuse that started in her early childhood where she took the role as "protector" in her family dynamic and how she lived with an abusive father who was also in law enforcement. She touches on abuse within a religious family, hiding the abuse, being disowned by her family for 9 years, how she had to set boundaries with her dad before he died, and how therapy helped her break the cycle of abuse.

    And we wrap up our conversation discussing Beck's vision for creating safe places for people at the retreat they hope to build in Arizona in the future.
