Rachel has been musically inclined from a very young age. She grew up taking piano lessons, and began playing the clarinet once she entered high school. From there, she knew she wanted to continue using music to help others, and pursued an education in music therapy!
Rachel is a recent graduate of Wilfrid Laurier University, where she received a Bachelor of Music Therapy (with distinction) and a minor in psychology. Within her education, Rachel strengthened her skills in playing the clarinet, piano, guitar, steel drum, and ukulele. She is trained in Neurologic Music Therapy (NMT), which focuses on stimulating the brain to overcome injury using music. After volunteering at Accent Music Therapy for over a year, Rachel felt that it was the perfect place for her to complete her 1000-hour clinical internship. She will be finished in January 2017.
Rachel is experienced in working with children and teens with developmental delays, physical challenges, and Autism Spectrum Disorder. She is passionate and dedicated to enriching the lives of others through music to achieve their goals, and firmly believes that music can bring out the best in people.Rachel can be reached at email@example.com
