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
