Nikki is a Board-Certified music therapist and multi-instrumentalist. She grew up in Tarrytown, NY, in a home filled with musicians and a deep love and appreciation for all creative arts. In 2010, Nikki eventually moved to Boston, where she received her degree in music therapy from Berklee College of Music.

For the past decade, Nikki has served individuals of all ages across the five boroughs. In addition to a specialty in early childhood development and autism intervention, Nikki has pioneered a music therapy support program for adults living with Parkinson’s disease. It is her passion in life to bring as much joy and healing into the world as possible. She believes that music is a universal language that connects individuals of all ages, abilities, and backgrounds.

In addition to her work as a music therapist, Nikki is also a performer and singer-songwriter. Her skill set has allowed her to bring the use of songwriting intervention into her practice so individuals can also learn how to compose original and meaningful music. When Nikki is not singing or playing guitar, she loves cooking, baseball (go Yankees!), and hanging out with her cat, Anchovy!
