Music Therapy

Neuroscience continues to affirm music engagement as a powerful whole-brain experience to improve emotional, cognitive, behavioral, and mental goals.  This evidence-based specialization uses musical elements  (rhythm, pathos, lyrics) for non-musical goals.  No musical skills are required!

​Research in music therapy supports its effectiveness in many areas such as:

- Greater awareness of subconscious thoughts, feelings, motivations

- Emotional processing of grief and trauma

- Wellness, including managing stress, anxiety, depression

​Music Therapy interventions include

improvisation, lyric analysis, songwriting, and receptive listening. ​This modality is especially powerful with paired with other expressive art therapies, including art and dance / movement.

Sound Therapy

The therapeutic application of sound comes in many forms.  The external generation of sound - tuning forks, singing bowls, drums; the internal generation of sound - humming, toning, vocalization, singing.

As with music therapy, this can be integrated with mental health counseling sessions to support your goals.
