Our board-certified music therapists profoundly impact client lives. Therapists assess each client and develop specialised treatment plans to specifically address needs. Musical experiences teach adaptive techniques which carry over into all areas of life. Improvisation, songwriting, singing, listening, drumming, movement and dance, using instruments, and lyric discussion, are just a few examples of how music is used therapeutically.
(Music therapy) can make the difference between withdrawal and awareness, between isolation and interaction, between chronic pain and comfort — between demoralisation and dignity.
