Arts for Healing - Integrated Music Therapy and Art Therapy

We are a non-profit organization dedicated to providing integrated music therapy and art therapy for individuals with emotional, physical, developmental, and social needs throughout their lives.

Located in New Canaan, CT, our certified therapists have been serving clients throughout Fairfield and Westchester Counties for over 12 years.

Gabriel and Client in Music Therapy SessionIntegrated music therapy and art therapy is a clinical process used to address a variety of individual therapeutic goals, including: improving communication skills (expressive and receptive) and social interaction, enhancing motor function, stimulating emotional development, and fostering self-expression. According to one parent:

“Speech therapy helped my child speak more clearly, while Arts For Healing helped my son actually communicate more clearly.  It’s the ability of the music therapy to make him more confident and able to express himself, to say what he wants to say, that I most value as a parent”

Karen and Client in Music Therapy SessionBut from your child’s perspective, coming to Arts For Healing is fun.  While many children perceive traditional therapy to be hard work, integrated music therapy and art therapy is enjoyable.  At Arts For Healing your child will address personal goals in a nurturing and fun environment – one that fosters life-long skills, enjoyment, and inclusion through the arts.  In the words of a parent of one of our clients:

“To see our son embrace the joy of music is an emotion beyond words.  Thank you from the bottom of our hearts.”

The music therapy and art therapy at Arts For Healing can benefit clients with a range of needs from adaptive instrument instruction for individuals with sensory integration issues, to specialized educational goals for individuals with Autism Spectrum Disorders, to memory enhancement for adults suffering from Alzheimer’s.  We work with individuals and groups of all ages – children, adolescents, adults, and seniors – with numerous conditions.  For a full list of client conditions see Who We Serve.
