What is Music Therapy?
Music therapy is the use of music in a therapeutic relationship to improve overall health and wellness. Individuals have different desires, strengths, and needs; therefore music therapy is individualized to each person. Some goals addressed by music therapy include reducing anxiety or depression, improving communication, promoting physical development or rehabilitation, enhancing memory, expressing feelings, reducing pain, and managing stress.
The Music Therapy Clinic offers assessment and treatment for individuals of any age with a wide range of presenting issues, including autism, anxiety, depression, or other mental health needs; physical needs associated with stroke or post-treatment rehabilitation; communication disorders; and cognitive issues. Depending on the needs of potential clients and feasibility of services, individual and group services may be offered. Session length varies based on need and availability.
