What can she mean with, "Music Therapy"?

Updated: Oct 14, 2019

Music Therapy is a well-established health profession that requires a credentialed Music Therapist to address multiple needs for individual or group healing. My personal theory is that the human relationship to music is incredibly vast and dynamic and is something all of us have a connection to.


The creative therapy I offer is rooted in the commitment to exploring and optimizing the ways in which we can utilize our natural affinity for music to expand our human potential.


Example of a Visioning-board, accompanying the process determining values during a transitional time.

I've worked with a variety of people in hospitals, psychiatric, long-term care facilities, hospice, and in private residence settings for:


Pain Transformation, Management, and Alleviation

Social Growth and Cooperative Competence

Discovering and Developing Personal Voice and Advocacy

Cultivating Improvisatory and General Musical Skill

Practicing the Art of Listening

Ensuring Dignity and Peace at End-of-Life

Caring for those with Dementia

Expanding Personal and Organizational Capacity for Expression


Techniques that might be utilized in a Music Therapy session include:


  • Songwriting

  • Improvisation

  • Movement

  • Reflective listening

  • Guided Meditation

  • Semi-Structured Drumming

  • Rhythmic Tapping Technique

  • Writing


If you have additional questions, our first conversation is free. I'm committed to accessible and sustainable care, and fees are negotiated at the time of service. 


To schedule a conversation and intake, please visit Bloombender.org, see the "Book online" tab and schedule a time of “Music Therapy Assessment” that works for you.
