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.

Music therapy is a powerful medium. Unique outcomes are possible. In music therapy, each individual is provided support and encouragement in the acquisition of new skills and abilities. Because music touches each person in so many different ways, participation in music therapy offers opportunities for learning, creativity and expression that may be significantly different from more traditional therapeutic approaches.

— Megan Dozler, Creative Art Therapist in Napa, CA

While not all of my clients choose to incorporate music into our work, it can be helpful at times to find ways to express ideas and feelings beyond words. It might include making music, or sharing music that is meaningful in order to explore ourselves more deeply. My initial therapy training was in the Music Therapy program at NYU, where I earned an MA in Music Therapy.

— Nastasia Zibrat, Creative Art Therapist in Centennial, CO
 

As a Board-Certified Music Therapist, I integrate the power of words and music to help you heal and unlock your potential. Music is an ancient form of medicine that is now being recognized by the Western scientific communities as potent and effective. Music can be used as a springboard for discussion or a participatory experience for coping and self-expression through song, sound, and movement. No experience creating or playing music is necessary.

— Dax (Hannah) Glasson-Darling, Associate Clinical Social Worker in El Cerrito, CA

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 Wyomissing, PA
 

Music therapy is the strategic use of music toward a non-musical goal. I have been an board-certified music therapist for over 10 years. I specialize in using music for anxiety management and self expression. I am particularly interested in working with musician’s mental health. Inviting client’s musical lives into the therapy can be rich and powerful way to address their goals. Whatever your relationship to music, I believe you will find music therapy a fun and effective way to work.

— Genevieve Weiscovitz, Clinical Psychologist in , CA

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 have been a music therapist for over 5 years and have worked with a large diversity of clients in that time. I have done advanced training in neurological music therapy. I find techniques in music therapy especially helpful in breaking into difficult material and providing clients with a different means of communication and expression.
