Creative practices can often be a safer and more direct way of expressing, experiencing and understanding the most challenging emotions. I integrate my experience as a performer in Jazz, improvised and World music as well twenty years of zen practice into a unique and effective approach to therapy. Using both verbal psychotherapy and creative art mediums in a safe and supportive environment I work to guide the therapeutic process towards achieving a client's unique goals.

Have you ever found that a song speaks to a personal experience or emotion more fully than words alone? You don’t have to be a musician to benefit from the healing qualities of music. As a board certified music therapist, I extend the invitation to engage with music – whether that’s listening, vocalizing or feeling a rhythm in your body – to help move you closer to your goals.

— Rachel Haimovich, Licensed Professional Counselor in PHILADELPHIA, PA

I have been a practicing Creative Arts Therapist for 20 years and have both a Bachelor's and a Master's in music therapy.

Music Therapy is the evidence-based use of music and musical experiences to enhance quality of life. I have been a board certified Music Therapist for over 15 years, and have adapted appropriate techniques for use online. Not all of my sessions are Music Therapy centered, but this is a powerful intervention for those who might be interested in this specialty.

— Lori De Rea-Kolb, Counselor in Nazareth, PA

I am a Board Certified Music Therapist and Licensed Creative Arts Therapist. I consider our relationship with music and how it connects us to our cultural selves, how it shows up in the rhythms of our days, and how the non-verbal and creative aspect of it can connect us to our subconscious and things we don't have words for.

— Megan Smith, Creative Art Therapist in Rochester, NY
 

Music therapy is the strategic use of music toward a non-musical goal. I am a board-certified music therapist working with music therapy since 9/11.

I have a unique perspective to welcome client’s music into sessions to access their full selves.

Music therapy is the clinical and evidence-based use of music interventions to accomplish individualized goals within a therapeutic relationship by a board-certified music therapist. Music therapists use individualized music-based interventions to address goals using a variety of music, verbal, and nonverbal techniques. Because music is a powerful medium, unique outcomes can be possible.

— Cara Hart, Licensed Professional Counselor Associate in Shillington, PA

Music therapy incorporates music as a way to improve your mental health and overall well-being. From listening to music, playing an instrument, singing or writing a song, music therapy, when practiced with a licensed therapist, gives you the ability to discover or express underlying causes of pain or stress. People of all ages can benefit from music therapy, and no amount of musical ability or prior experience is needed.

— Tori Mierlak, Creative Art Therapist in New York, NY
 

I am a Board Certified Music Therapist, as music therapy is my primary certification.
