I’m Dyllin, a certified music therapist, proudly holding a board certification, and a graduate of Purdue University, where I earned a Bachelor’s degree in Music Therapy with a supplementary minor in Psychology. I’ve honed my skills to help individuals of all ages and backgrounds grow and develop through music.
My therapeutic philosophy centers around therapeutic relationship, using music as the vehicle for change while cultivating a safe and positive environment for growth. Within this, I acknowledge that everyone is different and has a different level of need and goal focuses. I adapt to these changes and make our sessions together fit your unique needs!
I’ve worked with a rich and diverse educational experiences, including a comprehensive range of practicum placements that provided me with invaluable insights into the multifaceted applications of music therapy. These formative experiences encompassed diverse clinical settings, spanning pediatric care within a hospital environment, day programs tailored to individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities, and the realm of mental health interventions for children. I thrive when using music to support other’s emotional expression, enhance cognitive skills, and foster interpersonal connections.
Beyond the therapy room, you might find me biking, playing sports, or being a foodie around Fort Wayne!
