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 is an established health profession in which music is used within a therapeutic relationship to address physical, emotional, cognitive, and social needs of individuals. After assessing the strengths and needs of each client, the qualified music therapist provides the indicated treatment including creating, singing, moving to, and/or listening to music. Through musical involvement in the therapeutic context, clients' abilities are strengthened and transferred to other areas of their lives. Music therapy also provides avenues for communication that can be helpful to those who find it difficult to express themselves in words. Research in music therapy supports its effectiveness in many areas such as: overall physical rehabilitation and facilitating movement, increasing people's motivation to become engaged in their treatment, providing emotional support for clients and their families, and providing an outlet for expression of feelings.

Yoga for Grief
Yoga is not only a physical practice, it includes breath work, meditations and chanting leading to a closer relationship with ourselves while honoring our experience of loss and integrating into everyday life. Yoga helps to be with our grief and guides us toward growing with our grief. Meet Susan Connolly, who shares our yoga for grief. She is trained and certified through One Voice Yoga and is a Compassionate Bereavement Care Yoga Provider certified through the Miss Foundation and Center for Loss and Trauma. She works from a person-centered perspective inviting each person's emotions and body responses and recognizing that this varies widely. As a bereaved mother Susan appreciates the depth of grief and the difficult issues facing those grieving the loss of a loved one. Susan offers workshops monthly (1 1/2 hour) and semi annually (full day workshop).
