Music Therapy at CBF

Kelly Garland-Egeler, MT-BC, has been working in tandem with Creating Brighter Futures for 10 years, and LOVES leading our music therapy groups and meeting with kiddos 1:1 in the music therapy space for individualized sessions. Music therapy is the clinical and evidence-based use of music interventions to accomplish individualized goals within a therapeutic relationship by a credentialed professional who has completed an approved music therapy program. Music therapy interventions can be designed to:

  • Promote wellness
  • Manage stress
  • Alleviate pain
  • Express feelings
  • Enhance memories
  • Improve communication
  • Promote physical rehabilitation

Music therapists use singing, instrument playing, improvisation, and many other forms of “musicing” to support the needs and goals of individuals and groups. Music therapy works both as a stand-alone therapy modality and in conjunction with other therapies. For more information, you can check out the American Music Therapy Association at or the Certification Board for Music Therapists at
