Music Therapy

What is Music Therapy?

Music Therapy is the clinical and evidence-based use of music interventions to accomplish individualized goals within a therapeutic relationship by a credentialed professional who has completed an approved music therapy program. In music therapy sessions, music is used within a therapeutic relationship to address physical, emotional, cognitive, and social needs of individuals.

How Does Music Therapy Make a Difference?

Music stimulates all of the senses and involves the client at many levels, facilitating multiple developmental skills, encouraging socialization, self-expression, communication, and motor development. Our board-certified music therapists use music-based interventions in a clinical setting to help clients achieve individualized goals.
