SoundWell Music Therapy in Longmont specializes in behavioral and mental health music therapy services. Behind SoundWell Music Therapy is Faith Halverson-Ramos, MA, LPC, MT-BC. Through SoundWell Music Therapy, Faith works with people of all ages who are experiencing mental health challenges. These challenges can be due to a life event, a life transition, or they can be simply related to a person’s unique neurological wiring.

What is Music Therapy and How Does It Work?

mental health music therapy in Longmont

Music therapy is the clinical use of music to address goals related to one’s physical, emotional, mental, social, spiritual or existential states of being. People are neurologically and physiologically hardwired to respond to music. Music can affect us emotionally, mentally, and even spiritually. Music therapy uses this power that music has to create therapeutic change.

It’s a recognized allied healthcare profession. Like other healthcare professionals, board-certified music therapists (MT-BC) assess for therapeutic need. From their assessments they develop individualized music therapy treatment plans.

How Music Therapy Can Help You Enhance Your Mental Health and Well-Being

Music can help you calm down, gather your thoughts, and self-regulate. It can motivate and inspire you. Music can help you focus and learn, while it can also help you tap into your own resourcefulness and knowledge.

Music can help you connect with, express, and move through your personal pain so that you find your personal meaning and joy in life.

Services Offered by SoundWell Music Therapy in Longmont

Because music is a powerful and versatile tool, SoundWell Music Therapy offers a variety of therapeutic music services. Each service addresses the mental health and quality-of-life needs experienced by people throughout the lifespan. The accessibility of music helps make mental health services available to those with neurological differences or impairment who might not otherwise receive care.

Individual Counseling and Music Therapy is available to children and teens, adults, and older adults. To get a sense of what a music therapy session with me might be like, watch this video:

Hospice and end-of-life music therapy services are also available to individuals and their families.

Community Music Therapy Groups are available off-site in Longmont and Boulder County. These are through collaboration with community organizations, area healthcare agencies, and local businesses.

Examples of organizations SoundWell Music Therapy works with include:

  • Schools and early childhood education programs
  • Community mental health and social services organizations
  • Assisted living and memory care communities

SoundWell Music Therapy also offers community workshops and presentations.

Music Instruction is available in piano and voice. Playing an instrument can help foster attention and focus, while boosting self-confidence and self-esteem. Music lessons are different from music therapy in that the goal of lessons is purely musical. SoundWell Music Therapy offers both traditional and adapted lessons. This allows SoundWell to offer instruction to neurotypical and neurodivergent students.

You can’t overestimate the value of learning how to play a musical instrument. This is true whether you’re young or old.
