​Besides composing, he is also a licensed psychotherapist. How do the two fields–counseling and composing–complement each other? “It’s all a fusion of everything I do,” he explains. “I blend the creativity of composing with psychology.”

Testimonial w/ Audio Sample

I had a very positive experience having my Music Portrait done. During our live session, Rick was professional, conscientious, and gentle. He made me feel immediately at ease with his kindness and care, and talked me through the process before beginning to play the piano.

When Rick began playing my Music Portrait, I felt an amazing energy and aliveness in my system. The music truly felt like a representation of my essence! What an extraordinary gift to be “seen” and “heard” through music in this way. I have never experienced anything else like it, and I am so moved and affected.

From beginning to end, the whole experience was calming, soothing, uplifting, and healing. What an incredible gift to give yourself or a loved one!

Testimonial w/ Audio Sample

The first couple of minutes were startling, almost like catching a reflection in a window you weren’t anticipating. It was haunting and drew me in. Then midway I had all those images of Brittany, which also had the same grip on me – as if I recognized it.

The ending seemed like something I’ve yet to experience, almost like a glimpse of the future.
