Discover healing through music

Psychotherapy that utilizes music as part of your process allows for opportunities to experience getting out of your head and into your heart and soul. Hence the term Music Psychotherapy.

Music psychotherapy offers ways to go deeper: deeper into your emotions, your body, your relationship with the therapist, your experience. I invite you to explore this creative path towards your healing with me.
No music experience required!

Missy Fogarty

I am passionate about helping people feel better and improve their lives through music psychotherapy. I am a licensed creative arts therapist and board-certified music therapist.  I received my Masters degree from New York University’s renowned music psychotherapy program as well as training in hospitals, schools, an outpatient mental health clinic and a nursing home. I am also a Certified Gestalt therapist. Professionally, I have experience working with adults of all ages seeking to improve their lives as they overcome issues pertaining to anxiety, depression, addiction and everyday stress related to work, family and relationships.  I’ve also worked with children with autism and other developmental delays and their families. Before my own personal journey of healing that led me to become a therapist, I spent decades working as a professional musician with an unusually diverse singing career. Today, I combine all that experience and tailor it to each individual to help them on their own path towards healing and living a more full and authentic life.
