Back Mountain Music Therapy simultaneously considers each individuals preferences and differences, while administering an evidenced-based assessment. This is done through musical play, which drives musical, relational experiences to aid in further developing core emotional milestones necessary for expanding higher levels of thought in order to help clients increase their abilities to relax, regulate, engage, express, communicate and relate.
Music Therapy provides a form of expression and an avenue to develop areas that traditional therapies or learning may not provide for either individuals or families facing the following difficulties:
- Smith-Magenis Syndrome
- Rubenstein Taybi-Syndrome
- Sensory processing issues
- Language and communication delay
- Attention and focus issues
- Other developmental/neurological issues
- Trauma-related symptoms
- Behavioral or emotional challenges
- Impulsive behavior
- Traumatic or Acquired Brain Injury Symptoms

Therapy treatment plans are individually tailored for each client's area of need and developed using the client's existing strengths. The Heyward Rooms Music Therapy Center focuses on both relationship and developmental models to assess and understand client strengths and weaknesses to assist clients to organize sensory inputs, regulate or express emotional responses, develop the ability to share attention, and more. This approach creates an outlet for positive expression in which the client can make connections that traditional therapy or other learning types have made difficult.
My daughter has been working with Antionette for almost a year now, and we've seen amazing progress! She really loves coming here and looks forward to it every week! Antoinette is patient and encouraging. We looked for so long for a music therapist...thankful beyond words to have found BMMT! -Sandi A
Great Place to make music for people of all abilities! -Sara B
The knowledge and talent found here is comparable to bigger city therapy centers. They have helped us achieve goals we were once told we would never hit. My son is finding his voice, learning emotions and surpassing set goals while having fun in a non stressed environment! He doesn't know it's a therapy and that was important to me. I highly recommend looking into music therapy here! -Nicki A
