Melissa Sommers, MM, MT-BC

Melissa Sommers became a board-certified music therapist in 2006.  She received her bachelor's degree in Music Therapy from the University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire, and her master's degree in Music, with a focus in Neurologic Music Therapy, from Colorado State University. 

 

Melissa's introduction into the world of music therapy happened at a very young age.  Her youngest sister was born with a brain tumor.  Over the few years they had together, Melissa and her sister formed a very unique and strong relationship, through music.  On the toughest of tough days, Melissa quickly discovered the only way her sister would calm down was through playing piano for her.  Melissa realized she needed to start with her sister's preferred music, and wait for her to rock to the beat.  Once she was regulated and in a calmer state, then Melissa could branch into practicing her piano.  After the passing of her sister, Melissa has been passionate about using music to support others using the unique power and connection of music.
