L is enjoying music therapy via Skype as much as he does in person! Melissa, you have been an angel sent to us! L has been spelling words ever since he started doing it with you during music. He also sings during other activities -- both academically and for fun! It really helps him focus." -L's Mom
I just wanted to let you know how much I enjoyed and was impacted by your music therapy sessions while I was in virtual care for support with an eating disorder. I always wondered what we would do and I was always amazed after each session. I still have the playlist we made and keep adding to it. It helps me feel connected to the others in the program and gives me a sense of strength and perseverance.
I also wanted you to know that the day we composed a song, I wrote the song “I Am Afraid” which was about my decision whether or not to resign from my job. It was so helpful for me in finding clarity! I resigned on Tuesday of this week and while my co-workers & supervisors were sad, they were supportive of me taking the time to take care of myself. How powerful is music?!
I so wish I could share my depth of my gratitude in (virtual) person but I was unexpectedly discharged from care yesterday. Please know how important and meaningful your work was to me.
