“Music Therapy is the clinical and evidence-based use of music interventions to accomplish individualized goals within a therapeutic relationship by a credentialed professional who has completed an approved music therapy program. Music therapy interventions can address a wide variety of healthcare and educational goals” (American Music Therapy Association www.musictherapy.org)
“Music Therapists’ objectives are to determine and utilize music therapy approaches that effectively aid in the restoration, maintenance, and improvement in mental and physical health. Music Therapists believe in the dignity and worth of every person. They promote the use of music in therapy, establish and maintain high standards in public service, and require of themselves the utmost in ethical conduct.” (American Music Therapy Association www.musictherapy.org)
I became a board certified Music Therapist in 2006 and have maintained my credentials ever since. At PCS, I am supported in combining my doctorate of psychology with my music therapy board certification.
