I have witnessed firsthand how dedicated, driven and talented Lucille is as a Music Therapist. She is able to build a strong therapeutic bond with her clients that helps to foster an open therapeutic environment, where clients are comfortable exploring new interventions and goals. When communicating with family members/caregivers and facility staff, Lucille is a true professional by always being well-prepared with updates on clients sessions and other pertinent information that could be useful outside of the Music Therapy sessions. Lucille is always pushing herself to be a better Music Therapist, staying up-to-date in the music therapy literature, attending state and regional conferences and taking independent self-study courses, so that she can always be able to provide the best services to her clients. Her expertise in working with the elderly and hospice populations will greatly impact her community, providing Music Therapy services to this ever increasing population.

As a clinician, Lucille works well independently, but is also a great communicator with the families and other professionals involved in her clients’ lives. Lucille is friendly and sociable with a nice sense of humor which makes her clients feel comfortable right away. She is creative with music therapy interventions and a great musician.
