Harmonizing Life and Music: My Journey to Healing

Music always held a special place in my heart, but for years, it remained just a distant dream. A hurtful comment in my childhood had silenced my voice, and it wasn’t until I faced my darkest moments with depression that I rediscovered my passion for music. Learning the guitar, writing songs, and immersing myself in musical projects became my sanctuary, helping me reconnect with myself.

Recently, I had the honor of being featured in Manual Magazine to share my musical journey with the community. Since my mental health journey is so closely linked to my growth as a musician, the article focuses on the powerful connection between music and mental health. Below I have included some of the highlights from my interview, but click below if you are interested in reading the full publication, as written by Mercedes Barreto.

The Role of Music in My Mental Health Recovery

Music became my lifeline, a way to express the inexpressible. It was in melodies and chords that I found the strength to face my depression. It became my voice when words failed me, allowing me to channel my emotions and regain lost confidence. Music was not just a hobby; it was my soul’s rescue.

Empowerment and Authenticity Through Music

As I grew as a musician, I also evolved as a person. Music taught me to embrace my imperfections and celebrate my uniqueness. It empowered me to break free from societal expectations and fears. Every note I played and every song I sang brought me closer to my authentic self. My life is a testimony to the healing power of music intertwined with the pursuit of mental wellness.

Contributions Beyond Music

My journey goes beyond melodies. As a special education teacher and community habilitation worker, I use my experiences to support others. I founded Bettering Now to share my learnings and help others on their mental health journey as music truly was a stepping stone away from my darkest times.
