GROUP THERAPY FOR CHILDREN THROUGH ADULTS
Groups provide many opportunities to work on social skills and broader goals involving communication and listening to others. Sessions are designed to help a group with similar needs meet their goals. All groups can be music therapy, art therapy, or in some cases, a combination of the two. Group Therapy can focus on:

Expression and Regulation of Feelings and Behavior
Socialization Goals such as Engagement, Empathy and Eye Contact
Learning Goals
Memory/Cognition
Language and Speech
Fine and Gross Motor Skills
Safe and Organized Sensory Stimulation
Communication Goals
Developmental Goals

Individual Art & Music Therapy
Individual sessions enable the therapist to work on the specific needs of the client, encouraging self-expression and creative development. For new students, we offer a 6-week Trial to ensure that this program is a good fit!

Workshops & Trainings
Informational workshops focus on adapting art and music to special populations. Corporate team building through the creative process helps focus groups on a common goal that is fun and engaging. Let us design a presentation for your next group.
