My daughter, Abbie, is a TBI survivor. Over the past 3 years we have been through many many therapies but I think the most impressive was a true licensed and board certified music therapy program. This is not just learning to beat a drum or tap a piano key, this therapy activates both sides of the brain and works on so many aspects of recovery, including:

  • Improved communication
  • Behavior modification
  • Sensory skills
  • Motor skills
  • Social and emotional functioning
  • Cognitive skills
  •  Stress management
  • Promotion on wellness
  • Pain management
  • Memory enhancement
  • Fostering interaction and
  • Communication

We feel so much to have worked with The George Center for Music Therapy. Our music therapist was awesome and the entire staff was sp positive and caring. They have a beautiful office space and offer in home sessions. They will work with you insurance company and they direct you to scholarships and grants. 

It is a therapy often overlooked, but now we know, is invaluable. 

Thank you, 

Mary Beth Williamson
