Do I need musical training?

Not at all! The Individual Music-Integrated Therapy Training program is completely personalized to meet you wherever you are at musically.

Whether you're someone who's never picked up a musical instrument, a highly trained musician, or anywhere in between, you will learn to integrate music into your sessions in a way that is congruent with your unique musicality and strengths.

How Does It Work?

Simply pick the track that you’ll be studying:

If you have previous musical training >>

You will learn to integrate one of music listening, composition/songwriting, improvisation, or music re-creation.

If you have no previous musical training >>

You will integrate clinical music listening experiences into your work. Depending on you and your clients, this includes one or more of: guided imagery to music; creating therapeutic playlists; musical life-review; exploring topics through familiar songs; and self-expression through found music.

Hi, I'm Deborah

My pronouns are she/her and I'm honoured to live in the beautiful land of the Lekwungen-speaking Peoples and of the Songhees, Esquimalt and WSÁNEĆ Peoples. When you work with me, you're receiving a unique blend of the highest standards of psychotherapy, clinical counselling, music therapy, and musicianship that I have been developing over the past 20 years. I am a Registered Clinical Counsellor with the BC Association of Clinical Counsellors (#17031), a Certified Music Therapist (#0334) with the Canadian Association of Music Therapists, and a recognized Climate Aware Therapist with the Climate Psychology Alliance of North America. I earned a PhD from Concordia University where my research focused on music improvisation, mental health and well-being. I hold a Master of Music Therapy with a specialization in Music-Centered Psychotherapy and an Honours Bachelor of Music Therapy with General Psychology from Wilfrid Laurier University. Before becoming a music therapist, I studied piano at the Royal Conservatory of Music. I have provided clinical supervision to over 100 university students, interns, and professionals. I have taught music therapy extensively at universities across Canada - most recently at McGill University. I am currently a Research Fellow of the Manfred and Penny Conrad Institute for Music Therapy Research (CIMTR) at Wilfrid Laurier University.
