Welcome

Portland Music Therapy is dedicated to using Neurologic Music Therapy (NMT) techniques to achieve non-musical goals, such as improved socialization and communication skills. Our work incorporates evidence-based research and individualized, quantifiable goals and objectives. We specialize in autism spectrum and special needs children and adults.

A SAFE HAVEN

Our clinic is meant to be a safe haven for families. Our mission is to serve the entire family of a special needs loved one.

Populations We Serve

Cerebral Palsy

Parkinson's and Huntington’s

Stroke

Traumatic Brain Injury

INDIVIDUAL SESSIONS

Families usually benefit the most from individual music therapy sessions. These sessions are more personalized, and a client can practice skills in a safe space with less social pressures while having fun!

GROUP SESSIONS

Group sessions are created when it is clear that two or more clients would be mutually beneficial. As the therapist gets to know the client, they can recommend groups based on their needs.

FAMILY CENTERED

If you are seeking support in accomplishing daily goals, family centered in-home sessions may be the best way to introduce music therapy into your child’s or family member's routine. The therapist will let you know if this is something they recommend.

MUSIC LESSONS

We provide voice, guitar, piano, and music theory lessons. Although we specialize in adapting lessons to make them successful for persons diagnosed with disabilities, we will work with anyone who is ready to learn. We take pride in being able to help all on their musical journey regardless of age, cognitive level, disability, or experience!

OUR APPROACH

Portland Music Therapy maintains a very specific intention – to discover the gifts beyond a diagnosis.
