My story

I see myself as an intuitive, empathic and passionate woman. I am always open to new adventures, and hungry for self-development and connection. I think life is an incredible opportunity to develop our full potential. This is my main goal, together with assessing our balance and working on maintaining harmony.

But I had to go through some storms to get where I am now... I was born in the early 1980s, in Italy, into a very challenging family. At an early age, when the environment around me was becoming unpleasant, I found I could retreat to my room and sing. I soon understood that my voice was a tool for handling the stress but also a resource for channelling my moods, emotions, thoughts.

When I was a teenager I decided I wanted to turn this gift into my life’s work, so I started to study singing. I graduated in classical singing in 2008 and embarked on my career as a professional singer. At the same time, I decided to explore my passion for psychology, and completed my degree in “Psychological Processes for the Person and the Community” in 2011.

 

That was also the year that I began my own therapy journey, which would last more than seven years. The need to expand my horizons led me to leave my country and move to the Netherlands, where I currently live. Here, I obtained a masters degree in solo early music singing at the Conservatorium van Amsterdam.

 

With time, it gradually became clear that I needed to use my voice in a more emotionally expressive way. Indeed, my favourite works include free improvisation and free expression. I understood that to access and manifest my full potential during performances, I had to dive deeper into psychotherapy, meditation, body work and breathing techniques. Years of self work and performance experience led me to develop a totally personal approach to using my voice and my body to freely express myself, deal with emotions and heal trauma.

I call this approach VOICE IT NOW.

I am currently training in Music Therapy at Codarts Rotterdam, where I am developing new tools and skills that will allow me to take care of my clients with even more dedication and experience. I feel ready to share my knowledge and enthusiasm with you!
