Frequently Asked Questions:

What is Music Therapy?

Music therapy is a clinical and evidence-based practice that utilizes music interventions to address individualized therapeutic goals within a therapeutic relationship. Trained music therapists use music as a tool to enhance physical, emotional, cognitive, and social functioning, catering to diverse populations and addressing a range of conditions such as stress, mental health disorders, and developmental disabilities. 

What is Play Therapy?

Play therapy is a therapeutic approach primarily used with children that leverages play as a medium for communication and emotional expression. Trained play therapists create a safe and supportive environment where children can engage in play activities to explore and process their thoughts, emotions, and experiences, helping them to better understand and manage challenging situations. Through play, therapists can gain insights into a child's inner world and provide targeted interventions to support their psychological development and overall well-being.

What is Expressive Arts Therapy?

Expressive arts therapy encompasses various therapeutic approaches, including art therapy, music therapy, dance/movement therapy, drama therapy, and other expressive modalities. Trained therapists use these creative processes to help individuals explore and express their emotions, improve self-awareness, and enhance overall mental health and well-being. By engaging in artistic and expressive activities, clients can tap into their innate creativity to address psychological, emotional, and social challenges within a therapeutic context.
