 About DBT Skills Mastery through Music

DBT Skills Mastery through Music is by far the best Online DBT course I've ever taken. I have been in another DBT course and it was not the best experience.  I love DBT Mastery. Makes me feel safe in an online environment. The skills taught are life skills and crucial skills to know to be present and tolerate distress and manage emotions. They say music is healing. And that is why I joined. To find healing through Music and to be able to utilize the skills learned in my every day life. I would highly recommend this course to anyone wanting a better life for themselves. Through this course I have managed to change my life around. I have long way yet to go but have come far through this course. This is a perfect opportunity to enhance your skills training experience using music to help build skills mastery. The instructors are very good at teaching the skills in an engaging way. Thank you DBT Mastery through Music for allowing me to grow and share my journey with you all. Love you all.

My new job had some challenges for me. When I attended workplace trainings and we talked about some of the trauma families face, sick feelings were stirring up inside of me because of my own severe childhood trauma. I was having nightmares. I was getting sick alot. I was getting headaches and getting very emotional. I was also at a point having just started my job and trying to get caught up after having lost my previous job, that I couldn't really afford to see a therapist regularly, even though I knew I really needed to. I love music. I took a children's music therapy class in college and really enjoyed the class. And, this class was being offered for a monthly fee similar to what my copay for a single week would be with just talk therapy and no music. The bonus is you still get the weekly music therapy lessons and they're easy to access from your home and the music therapist is always quick to respond when you have a question. Great idea!

DBT Skills Mastery through Music

About Us

We are a group of Board Certified Music Therapists who have completed Behavioral Tech’s DBT Skills Training Program, as well as an in-depth year long DBT informed Music Therapy program that includes 11 months of clinical supervision from a DBT-Linehan Board of Certification Certified PsyD clinician.  We all have experience facilitating DBT informed music therapy groups, and are often found co-leading groups with psychologists, social workers, and other DBT skills group leaders.

Deborah Spiegel MT-BC

Deborah Spiegel MT-BC was first introduced to DBT in 2001 when she worked as a member of a Dialectical Behavior Therapy based treatment team at the Colorado Mental Health Institute. She was trained in DBT alongside her treatment team by representatives of Behavioral Tech.

Being a Board- Certified Music Therapist, she found herself using music to teach the skills in her DBT skills training groups, and also reinforcing the DBT skills in her music therapy groups. Over the next 11 years this evolved into her passion for using music therapy to support patients in strengthening DBT skills. 

Author of a book in 2010,  the 2nd edition, called Creative DBT Activities Using Music – Interventions for Enhancing Engagement and Effectiveness in Therapy, was published by Jessica Kingsley Publishers in 2020.

Deborah’s passion for integrating DBT with music therapy  led her to spearhead a research project.  Plus it led her to present workshops nationwide since 2011, and eventually online. 

She is CEO and director of The Spiegel Academy, which provides online continuing education for music therapists and allied professionals. This includes specializing in providing a comprehensive DBT informed music therapy training program in conjunction with Dr. Lauren Bonavitacola.

Bailey Hinz MT-BC

Bailey Hinz is a board certified music therapist and is currently earning a degree in social work.  She has always had a love of music and of people. While earning a bachelor’s degree in music from North Central College, she spent summers as a camp counselor, an experience which inspired her to further pursue work in a helping profession. 

In 2013, Bailey received her master’s degree in music therapy from Colorado State University; her graduate thesis was on the utilization of therapeutic music for young women with negative body perception and disordered eating.

Bailey has had the opportunity to work with a variety of populations including mental health, at risk youth, substance abuse, veterans’ needs, hospice, autism spectrum, developmental disability, and diseases of aging. Her greatest passion and life’s purpose, however, lies in mental/ behavioral health.

She loves incorporating music and other creative arts to affect meaningful change in the lives of individuals she serves. 

To continue her growth as a clinician, Bailey received her designation as a DBT informed Music Therapist through Behavioral Tech and The Spiegel Academy in 2017. She has been a team member at the Spiegel Academy since 2020.

In her free time, Bailey lives an active lifestyle. She enjoys running, cycling, swimming, camping, and hiking with her trusty pup Benji.

Stephen King MT-BC

Stephen King explored his interest in Music and Psychology with his undergraduate work at Harding University, after which he studied the Masters in Music Therapy program at Texas Woman’s University. 

His Music Therapy career allowed for experience with older adults, addiction and recovery, children with developmental challenges, and most recently adolescents with behavioral and emotion regulation difficulties.

 In early 2018, Stephen enrolled in The Spiegel Academy in conjunction with Behavioral Tech, to earn his designation as DBT informed Music Therapist. 

Combining his interest in electronic music and technology, Stephen brings unique skills to the community of Music Therapy with sessions both online and in-person.
