The following Board Certified Music Therapists have officially earned the designation of DBT Informed Music Therapist. 

You can hire them for DBT Informed Music Therapy 1-1 sessions or groups, or as a valuable addition to a treatment team. 

Qualified DBT Informed Music Therapists

We are trained in how to use music and music activities in a prescribed manner to reach individualized goals, and more specifically in how to use music to help people enrich their lives with DBT skills.

Using music therapy strategies, we help participants learn, strengthen, generalize and build mastery of DBT skills to enhance their lives and create a life worth living.

What Makes these Practitioners Qualified

The following people have completed an intensive yearlong DBT Informed Music Therapy Training at the Spiegel Academy, which includes DBT skills training as well as 12 months of clinical supervision from Lauren Bonavitacola, a DBT-Linehan Board of Certification Certified PsyD clinician (and a team of other DBT experts) while they implement DBT with music therapy.

They have demonstrated competency in facilitating DBT informed music therapy sessions, and are often found co-leading skills training groups with psychologists, social workers, and other DBT skills group leaders.

Those with this DBT Informed Music Therapy Ambassador badge have participated in an additional year or more of advanced training in DBT informed music therapy.
