A Place To Be’s Mission Statement

What Is Music Therapy?

Music is an effective, accessible, and emotionally transformative medium that can drive meaningful changes across many facets of life.

Here at A Place To Be, we use music therapy to promote health outcomes for everyone, including neurodivergent, disabled, and marginalized individuals through individual therapy and community programming.

All our music therapists have completed their music therapy degrees and the required 1200 hours of clinical training, constantly working to bring the latest and best innovative practices to A Place To Be.
