What is the goal?
Goals addressed with music therapy may include – emotional catharsis and expression, practice with coping skills, bolstering identity and self-esteem, regulation of energy levels, increasing presence and distress tolerance, and increasing self-awareness. It also offers a space for safety and success.

That is why our therapists cover such a wide range of ages, treatments, life stages, and more.
