what is music therapy?

Music therapy is an allied health profession that conceptualizes a holistic community health approach to well-being. The overall well-being of our families is vital to the success of the resettlement process. We are partnered with board certified music therapist, Olga Samsonova-Jellison, MA, MT-BC, NMT, who is a naturalized American citizen and is personally familiar with the specifics of resettlement and the acculturation process.
