Hi! I’m Leah and I help parents with autistic/ADHD kids learn Brain Songs to help decrease anxiety and depression, and promote communication and connection.
With viola performance and teacher certification degrees from The University of Washington, I have worked with thousands of students in the US, India, and Sweden for more than 20 years, creating community and empowering people with music. While living in the Seattle area, my orchestra programs were recognized as among the top in Washington state.
Now, after becoming a mom at age 43, I realize the need for more resources to help parents of autistic/ADHD children. Through songs, stories, and a complete course for parents, it's my aim to help our kids succeed in school and life by increasing connection with caregivers and parents. I create songs that are developed from positive affirmations, combined with parenting lessons to help increase connection with caregivers and parents so we can decrease frustration and anxiety in our kids.
My music is New Age Folk with violin, viola, cello, and vocals. I create a blend of old-world influences with positive, gender-inclusive messages. In December of 2021, my first children's book of the Gender Rainbow series was published and my first music album, Grace, So Amazing was also released.
After 4+ years of fertility challenges, I went through a major healing journey. I went on to meet my now-husband on the swing dance floor while on a trip to Sweden. And, I now live in Herräng with my husband and our child. My husband Mattias and I enjoy sharing our love of swing dancing and singing silly songs with our child.
