Music Therapy
FOR NASHVILLE TN AND THE SURROUNDING AREA

Music is the language of the heart. 

Sometimes words are just not enough to fully express what needs to be shared.

Music is one of the most beautiful gifts we have in this world. It has the ability to soothe the anxious system, give meaning to pain, and bring comfort to the heartbroken and lonely. 

When traditional talk therapy is not enough, music therapy helps bring a deepening to the work and healing our clients receive at Replenish Her. 

Our board-certified music therapists, bring music to our individual and group counseling sessions through interventions such as lyric analysis, song writing, drum circles and improvisation. 

We utilize music to help empower our teens to learn how it can be an effective coping mechanism for anxiety and depression. 

We use it with our women that have walked through traumatic experiences to help them process and find meaning, when words alone are difficult.
