Music is easily accessible and has elements that can be either culturally specific or universal thus providing connections between people of all backgrounds. In addition, listening to a favorite song or playing an instrument can be instantly reinforcing and make even difficult tasks more enjoyable. The right music can make a social gathering or special event more memorable.

Music is energizing, relaxing, enjoyable for all ages and easily accessible making music an excellent therapy for a number of needs including Autism, Intellectual Disabilities, Alzheimer’s disease and in maintaining dignity during the aging process. Music Therapy is a collaborative effort between the client, the music therapist, their caregivers and their treatment professionals. As a Music Therapist I utilize my experience and knowledge to structure musical experiences in individual and group settings to achieve goals to improve the health and wellbeing of my clients and to addresses the client’s deficits, needs, and strengths.
I also provide elegant harp music for weddings and receptions and as an entertainer in long term care, retirement facilities and other settings in the Lincoln, NE area.
INDIVIDUAL MUSIC THERAPY
Private Music Therapy services are best for working on specific goals or when behaviors or sensory needs prevent participation in a group. Sessions are provided in your home. When applicable and possible, your music preferences will be taken into account.
MUSIC THERAPY GROUPS
Registration now closed for our fall Social Skills Class! Music Therapy Groups provide a chance to experience a variety of musical experiences and genres. Often music in the group setting allows individuals to accomplish more than they would on their own. Music is an inherently social activity providing a natural opportunity to practice social skills.
Live music is one of the most memorable elements of any wedding! The harp is perfect for casual outdoor events, formal church weddings and intimate family gatherings. Jennifer has performed harp in the Lincoln area for over 10 years with a repertoire ranging from classical to Celtic, customized to your religious requirements and preferences. Special requests honored when possible. Flute/harp duo available on request.
Events and therapy appointments are scheduled on a first come-first served basis. In addition, family and church events may take precedence, especially for those events that take place outside my regular office hours. Services will not be refused on basis of race, color, religion, gender, sexual orientation, gender identity or expression, national origin, age, or Veteran status. Some conditions do respond better to Music Therapy interventions than others. In addition, as a Music Therapist, I may choose not to serve clients whose needs exceed my experience or training. If I am not able to accommodate your event or scheduling needs for therapy, I will do my best to refer you to another professional.
