Encouraging you on your journey to find your own personal rhythms for living
My name is Kristen Crouch and I am a wife, mother of 2 boys, a music therapist, an educator, and an artist. I started Rhythms For Living in 2009 as a board certified music therapist and music educator. At the time I was practicing as a music therapist and music educator and had a desire to serve others. I grew my private practice over the next 6 years and had the opportunity to work with some amazing therapists and teachers. Rhythmsforliving.com was the main source of information and resources for our music therapy and music education community in south Florida.
A cross-country move in 2015 with my family led me to close my private practice but gave me time to focus on my two boys. The last two years have been wonderful and also very difficult. From lack of family and support, closing a business I had worked so hard to build, going from sunny Florida to rainy Washington, going through a second pregnancy at an older age, trying to adjust to being a stay at home mom to two, and going through postpartum depression has offered many challenges. The beauty of it was the way God has carried me through and all that I have learned.
Rhythmsforliving.com has become my means of sharing with you what I have learned over my years as a music educator, a music therapist, a business owner, a mom, and as a woman. I will not only continue discussing the powerful benefits of music but will also venture into art, play, and wellness. I am still on my journey through motherhood and womanhood and have much to learn. My hope is that you will be encouraged and take something away from what I offer here and join me as we learn together and find ways to incorporate these important aspects into our daily rhythms of life.
Most importantly I want to connect with you! My hope is that we will be able to engage more and hear from you on your journey. We are made to live in community and not to live in isolation. My passion is that we can join together to improve our lives, the lives of our children, and future generations.
