Music has a unique impact on humans. Where sometimes it can be challenging to find the words to express how one is feeling, that feeling can be expressed more clearly through music. Music therapy is an evidence-based practice that uses the relationship between the therapist, the client, and the music to facilitate change. Kaitlin works to create a safe, open space where clients can express themselves without fear of judgement or criticism. Music therapy addresses coping skills, goal setting, behavior change, self confidence, and other goals unique to the client’s needs through musical experiences such as song writing, lyric analysis, musical games, and improvisation.
