When I opened my practice in April 2011, I kept encountering the same questions surrounding my profession and what I do:
- “I’ve heard of music therapy. What is it exactly?”
- “My child loves music. How can music therapy address his needs?”
- “Music therapy only works for people diagnosed with Autism, right?”
- “Did you have to go to school for this profession?”
I LOVE talking about music therapy and the overall power music can have on someone! Who knew that something that I enjoyed playing and engaging in all of my life is the same thing that can help others in so many ways? Do you think music therapy is something that can help someone you know? You can find out more about what I have to offer on my Services Page.
Carly attended Seton Hill University where she received her Bachelor’s of Music in Music Therapy. Her primary instrument was the saxophone, but received further training on the guitar, piano and voice. Her clinical work in her college career included working with individuals with developmental delays, NICU infants, adolescents in crisis, oncology patients, and individuals with dementia and Alzheimer’s disease. In June 2010, Carly completed advanced training in Neurologic Music Therapy through the Center of Biomedical Research in Music at Colorado State University, earning the credential of NMT (Neurologic Music Therapist).
Upon graduation and earning her board-certification, Carly worked with a variety of populations as a music therapist, including at-risk youth, palliative, stroke/TBI patients, and children and adults with developmental delays. April 2011, Carly started her private practice where she offers in-home individual or group music therapy services for individuals of all ages with developmental delays, Autism, Down syndrome, and neurologic impairments. In her spare time, she enjoys cooking, crafting, gardening, and dancing.
