This week as part of a series on Social Media Advocacy Month for music therapy, I'll be talking with Victoria Storm from Oak Park Music Therapy about why she loves music therapy.
Oak Park Music Therapy is based in a client-centered model; clients are served through a process of assessment, treatment/educational planning, intervention, and evaluation. Services are provided by a Board Certified Music Therapist to a variety of clientele. Home-based individual sessions, contractual arrangements with local facilities, and community based creativity workshops are the core of our offerings.
Victoria Storm, MM, MT-BC uses the transformative power of music to assist people to gain new insights through the metaphors inherent in non-verbal and symbolic self expression. Using the elements of music (rhythm, melody, harmony, texture, tempo, and dynamics) along with lyrics and story, Victoria customizes every session specifically for the needs of each client she sees.
Her clinical background includes 20 years of bringing music to persons in need through her work in a community music school, special education classrooms, physical and mental health hospitals, and elder care facilities. Her Master and Bachelor of Music degrees in Music Therapy are from Western Michigan University.
Victoria is a singer/songwriter, forever dedicated to the healing power of music.
