In Harmony Therapeutic Services is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit arts therapy practice staffed by board certified music therapists. Our team offers music therapy and music enrichment programs to support individuals of all ages in achieving personalized, non-musical goals that may include learning academic concepts, improving communication, and building social and emotional skills. In Harmony also consults with teachers, artists, and other professionals as well as parents and caregivers and provides professional development on how the arts can be used to connect with and promote an individual’s overall well-being. It is our hope that our work helps each individual we serve live in harmony with themselves and the world around them.
What makes In Harmony special is our dedication to being trauma-informed. Traumatic experiences can affect all of us and can create feelings of helplessness, vulnerability, loss of safety, and loss of control. Serious and/or prolonged exposure – especially in children – can have a lasting impact on the brain, negatively impact students’ foundations for learning, and lead to behavioral issues and difficulty in forming positive relationships. In Harmony has trained in trauma and learning through the Lesley Institute for Trauma Sensitivity and pairs music with trauma-informed supports to help each individual feel powerful, precious, and worthy.
