Billboard Magazine Interview – Helping the Music Industry Cope

Music industry veteran-turned-music therapist, Jodi Milstein, LMFT, LPCC, on providing help for artists and industry execs alike.

Billboard Magazine's Hannah Karp interviewed me for a very cool music industry piece in the publication's News section, "From The Desk Of".  This article appeared on  and as a two page spread in Billboard Magazine's September 2-15, 2017 issue.

The article explores how I have successfully combined two very different careers.  Drawing upon nearly two decades of entertainment industry experience and insight from my previous career in the music industry, I provide individual and group therapy to musicians and bands in an effort to help them improve their professional group dynamics and personal relationships.
Addressing challenges and communication issues prior to stepping into the recording studio or venturing out on tour has proven to be beneficial for all involved in saving time, money, and relationships.  It has been gratifying combining my unique insight into the music industry with my education and training as a psychotherapist.

Past | Present | Future

What thoughts, images or memories come to mind when you read the three words above?

Which of the above words resonates most with you?

Are you reminded of an experience in your past?

Do you think of an experience you are going though right now in the present?

Do you envision something new in your future?

Without a doubt, there are times when we tend to dwell on how we handled past experiences or daydream about the future, but what about right now? How often do we actually live in the moment…In the PRESENT?

We tend to get so caught up in our daily lives that everything becomes a blur. Before we realize it, our present is our past, our future is happening right now, and we are still trying to play catch up. How can we focus on the present and truly enjoy our lives?

This is a question I often ask myself when I am racing through life trying to fit a weeks worth of responsibilities into only a couple days. I am trying to just “get through” each day rather than LIVE through the day. LIVING through our days… LIVING in the PRESENT can bring an abundance more satisfaction to our lives than blindly racing through life with the goal to complete all of our tasks.

Today, try bringing more awareness to your day… Stop from time-to-time, take a few deep breaths and actually look around your world. Embrace your experiences as well as your accomplishments in your day… .throughout your life. Begin to fully take in YOUR DAY. LIVE your PRESENT day.

Until next time…

Wishing You Inner Peace and Harmony,

Jodi Milstein

There’s only now

There’s only now…
There’s only here…
Give in to love…
Or live in fear…
No other path…
No other way…

No day but today…
No day but today.

LIVE your day rather than just ‘get through’ your day”
