About Music Therapy


According to the American Music Therapy Association (AMTA), “Music Therapy is used within a therapeutic relationship to address physical, emotional, cognitive, and social needs of individuals.” The first step is performing an assessment of the client by a board certified music therapist. At that point the music therapist can develop a therapy program to strengthen the needs of the client.

 

Get To Know The Owner

Kirsten Lakeman, MT-BC  

I discovered my love for music as a young girl, watching The Lawrence Welk Show with my dad.  From there I joined the school band and continued on to the marching band at the University of Dayton. In 2013, I graduated from the University of Dayton and became a board certified music therapist. 

During my sessions, I aim for a truly client-centered experience. While many of the same techniques and interventions are used, no two sessions look the same. I embrace the client's culture, religious beliefs, and music preferences to create a meaningful experience.

Patient well-being is my number one priority, and I go above and beyond to help them through all their obstacles. Get in touch with me today for more information.

I tend to grow slowly, but solidly."
