Music Therapy Services

Music Therapy is an evidence-based profession in which music is used within a therapeutic relationship to address day-to-day needs. This therapy can focus on skill development in many areas including communication, cognition, motor, emotional and social skills. The Music Therapist will structure the therapy sessions to foster this skill development while using preferred instruments and music.

We Offer Music Therapy in Indianapolis, Lafayette, Kokomo, Marion, Greencastle, and the surrounding areas. Additionally, we offer individual and group therapy sessions.
