Thank you so much to Deborah, Suzanne, Bailey, Alice, Stephen and Lauren your dedication has made an impact on this Music Therapist and person. I can't wait to see where this takes me!"

“I joined this membership to learn the language of DBT. I like the fact that I can learn at my own pace. Some weeks I have more time than others so it’s a good balance. I have become more aware of glitches in my own life by learning many DBT concepts. It allows me to continue to grow and treat each experience as unique and inspiring - I hope to bring this to my clients as well!  I feel that I’m getting everything out of the program that I expected- and more.  I feel that there are many ways to reach out, ask questions, and utilize the resources provided. "

- Nola Karim, MT-BC

“ Since signing up for this membership I've found it beneficial both personally as well as for my professional career. I'm a music therapist working in a VA program, where they have a nationwide push for whole health skills, which includes mindfulness. Heaven knows my year has been crazy, and because the way everything is presented resonates with me it's really helped me. This works and makes so much sense. I can do this. It helps me be a better person which will in turn help my clients.  I like that there is no time limit in processing the information and that they give us time to take it in and time to apply it.”
