Our Program Offerings
Music, being common to all cultures, enables people to feel a sense of belonging, develop their personal identity, and express themselves creatively. Our music therapist, Carmen Eisenhauer, uses both musical and clinical interventions to help brain injury survivors improve, maintain, and restore an optimal state of well-being.
This program is hosted in-person on Mondays and Thursdays. See our Program Calendar for details!
This therapeutic program offers clients the chance to explore the world of visual arts, learn to expand their creativity, and unleash their imagination.
