Message from the director

Imagine singing to develop language and communication skills or painting to learn how to manage big feelings. Consider how being in a band can help build social and emotional skills or learning an instrument can help with focus and attention. Think about how participating in a musical theater production can help develop confidence or listening to music can help with memory.

At Music For Life Creative Art Therapy, we use the arts to help children, teens and adults grow as an individuals, build meaningful relationships and join an accepting community. Through music, art, theater and movement, we help our participants build important life skills, make friends and find meaning and joy. We work with people with ALL SKILLS, ABILITIES and CHALLENGES including developmental delays and disabilities, ASD, ADHD, Alzheimer's and dementia, TBI, as well as those managing difficult life transitions.

We have licensed music and art therapists on staff as well as professional musicians, actors and artists. We offer a wide variety of music, art, theater and movement experiences. We have recently added play therapy and parent coaching as well. I would love to discuss how we can be of service to you.  Please email me at
