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.

— Aaron Shragge, Creative Art Therapist in New York, NY

I studied and practiced music therapy in graduate school and believe in offering a creative approach to therapy. Often times, accessing creativity can provide a wonderful and necessary healing and emotional outlet. I have been a musician for as long as I can remember, and specialize in connecting clinical needs to music.

In music therapy, music is used as a tool and in relationship with a therapist to help with self expression where words fail.

— Toby Williams, Creative Art Therapist in Brooklyn, NY

I am a certified practitioner of the Bonny Method of Guided Imagery and Music, or GIM. This is a powerful modality of healing which allows travelers to bypass the conscious, analytical, verbal mind and work directly with the deeper self/unconscious through the language of the unconscious: imagery. The valuable inner gold discovered there is then brought back to the conscious mind and integrated into daily life. In the process of this transformative work, clients may uncover deeply hidden answers

As a board certified music therapist, Katy understands the powerful role of music in our lives and in therapy. Whether listening to music or creating our own, music allows us to explore emotions and thoughts in a different way. Katy believes that we all have a unique story to tell, and that expression and connection through music can be a profound pathway to self-exploration and understanding.

— Katy Hutchings, Therapist in Haddon Heights, NJ

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.

— Kate O'Brien, Therapist in New York, NY

I graduated from Appalachian State University in 2013 with my bachelor of music in music therapy. One month later, I received the credentials music therapist-board certified (MT-BC). I graduated in 2017 from Appalachian with an MA in counseling and an MMT in music therapy. I have been practicing music therapy since 2014, and I focus on the intersection of the mind and the body. I am also an advanced trainee in the Bonny Method of Guided Imagery and Music.

— Hannah Lingafelt, Therapist in Durham, NC

I am a Licensed Creative Arts Therapist and Board Certified Music Therapist since 2006. I have additional training in Analytical Music Therapy, involving the symbolic use of music making to work towards bringing meaningful long term change.

— Audrey Morse, Psychotherapist in New York, NY

I offer atmospheric relaxing music according to each client’s preference and need. I give clients choice of music or silence or white noise and have noise reducing ear phones and eye covers to reduce stimulation for those sensitive.

— Amanda Hendricks, Therapist in Condon, OR

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
