ET MUSIC THERAPY IS AN ESTABLISHED MUSIC THERAPY PRACTICE, SERVING THE METRO VANCOUVER AREA SINCE 1996.
We offer services with a holistic approach, family-centred, client-directed experience, and with a neuro-diverse forward philosophy. We believe in supporting the neuro-diverse individual in achieving his/her/their authentic potential, respecting and celebrating their neurodiversity. We are trauma-informed, sensory informed, use a positive behavioral approach, and individualize each program to each unique individual, to promote connection and independence. We collaborate with other service providers to support each client we serve.
The dynamic musical experience provides a safe, nurturing environment in which an individual can feel secure and confident to explore. Because music has stimulating, sensory, motivational, and emotive qualities, it can be used as a tool to elicit music, verbal, emotional, or corporeal responses and promote interaction and engagement in an enjoyable and often effortless way. An individual will always integrate new information and skills when there is inner motivation and curiosity. Music can be the built-in reward. In music therapy sessions, experiences can facilitate development in all skill domains. All activities are tailored to the client's ability level & are designed to utilize his or her personal strengths, motivations, and interests.
