During the time we work together I keep a hand written file which is kept in a secured (locked) cabinet at all times.  This file helps remember the detail and goal areas for the best treatment practice. Following our last session, the file would be securely disposed of following a 10 year period.

What is music therapy?2020-04-18T19:45:03+00:00

Music Therapy is a creative therapy using music and music experiences by a credentialed professional (MTA) to create a therapeutic relationship to support mental health and development. In safe and ethical practice, music therapists restore, maintain and improve the wellbeing in cognitive, communicative, physical, social, emotional, spiritual and musical domains. Music is part of all human beings connection to memories, experiences and through our inner rhythms of our own bodies. A session might include guided listening, music for relaxation, songwriting or improvisation.

“Music gives a soul to the universe, wings to the mind, flight to the imagination, and life to everything.” – Plato

Do I need to be a musician to try music therapy?2020-04-18T19:45:40+00:00

Anyone can participate in music therapy. The process of making music is important, and each experience is unique and designed for the needs and experience as well as the style preference. Experimenting with instruments, writing raps, moving and singing with music are all ways to have a shared experience.
