Guest Musician

Billy Mixer has been a musician his entire life. He began his professional career as teenager playing in clubs, churches, receptions and too many weddings to count. His musical journey has taken all sorts of avenues from teaching voice and piano, songwriting and traveling the country playing gigs in possibly every small town and major city coast to coast. He eventually moved to Nashville where he landed in the music industry working as a session singer, music publishing and some major record labels. A few years ago he decided to take break from the music business. He move to Portland and has found that music as a hobby suits him just fine. Now Billy enjoys participating in the music programs of MCC Portland and Portland Gay Men’s Chorus.

I embody the principles of New Thought in my everyday life and it makes such a positive difference in all that I do and all that I touch -- in my counseling practice and in my spiritual practitioner practice.
