Why are we called ‘Mainstay’?

A ‘Mainstay’ is defined as a ‘thing on which something else depends’. We desire for our music therapy services to be a support to individuals and their families; being consistent in holding a safe space for expression, creativity, and growth.

Mainstay Music Therapy, Inc. is centered around the ability to employ the adaptability and flexibility of music to motivate and promote growth in the individuals we serve; we strive to encourage independence and the highest quality of life while providing a supportive and compassionate environment. Our therapists strive to support the needs of each person with empathy and understanding in a way that resonates with each individual’s life experience. It is our goal at Mainstay Music Therapy, Inc. to provide professional, quality music therapy services and to provide evidence-based support of and thorough communication regarding therapy. We value authentic connection with each individual and collaboration with families and team members to be an integral and active participant in the support team.
