As a music therapist...

  • Struggle to come up with fresh new music therapy methodology with little time to figure it out

  • Need CMTEs for recertification but find it difficult or impossible to get time off plus pay for travel on top of the course fees

  • Get confused, not prepared, or burnt out

  • Feel frustrated with difficult clients or work situations?

  • Need or want support of like-minded professional peers
