At Bay Area Music Therapy, we focus on the client first.
We are person-centered therapists who believe in a integrative approach to wellness. Rather than focusing on symptoms alone, we value the importance of preventative care and the mind-body connection.
We look at each of our clients as a whole person and not simply a diagnosis. We work with our clients’ abilities to address their needs and goals.
We believe that we all have music–inborn, innate. Our hearts beat rhythmically, our movements are rhythmic and fluid, just like music. Music is often a shortcut to reaching a person’s heart and soul, as well as having physiological effects, because our cells resonate with the frequencies of the music.
We have the capacity to be expressive through music, independent from a specialized skill set or musical aptitude. We have the ability to relate to one another through the universal language of music, as well as gain insights. Self-expression, creativity and self-empowerment are the foundation of our work as therapists, allowing us to provide our clients with a unique opportunity to grow their self-esteem through positive and successful music experiences.
