In 2018, I began Unison Music Therapy with the goal of providing individuals in Eastern Idaho with top-of-the-line music therapy
services and I am so excited we've been able to expand into Northern Idaho. We strive to create an environment of acceptance,
connection, and growth. We practice from a humanistic, wholistic methodology, looking at the person as a whole. We focus on how each individual's strengths can help them to grow and overcome the challenges they may be facing in order to provide the best quality of life.
We offer individual services and group services. We are also pleased to be offering Telehealth options where in-person may not be available.
MENTAL HEALTH AND MUSIC THERAPY
Music is a powerful way for individuals with mental illness to develop coping skills. This can be accomplished through interventions such as songwriting, learning relaxation techniques, improvisation, learning an instrument, lyric analysis, and so on. As individuals come to understand they are not alone, the music can help them build powerful connections and tools to help them manage symptoms.
MUSIC THERAPY FOR DISABILITIES
Children and adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities, Autism, or behavioral disorders benefit greatly from music therapy because the music provides an inherently fun aspect to the work we do. We may be working on communication skills, motor movement, self-regulation, or impulse control, but the music is intrinsically motivating and will not feel like work.
MUSIC THERAPY WITH SENIORS
Do you have a loved one who has dementia or Alzheimers? Do you have trouble connecting with them and see them becoming more isolated? Music therapy has been shown to be a great asset with these individuals, creating connections and social interactions that would otherwise be difficult to have. Contact us to find out whether your loved one would be a good candidate for music therapy services.
MUSIC THERAPY AND NEUROLOGICAL DISORDERS
Do you have a loved one who suffers with a neurological disorder? Music therapy can be used to increase communication, motor movement, attention to task, impulse control, and so on. Please contact us with questions if you would like more information on the benefits of music therapy with neurological disorders.
MUSIC THERAPY AND PAIN MANAGEMENT
Music therapy can be an effective therapy for acute or chronic pain management. Whether it be medical procedures, childbirth, or palliative care for long term illnesses, music therapy can provide helpful coping skills for overcoming pain.
WELLNESS SERVICES AND MUSIC THERAPY
In music therapy sessions for wellness, we work to solve current problems and improve positive thinking and behavior through music. We will help you “re-frame” your reactions and provide you with valuable tools to cope with life’s obstacles. Get in touch to book an assessment to see if this would be a valuable service for you.
