Stephanie Geare, MT-BCBoard Certified Music Therapist Cottontail Kids Music Together, Oasis Behavioral Health Hospital
Bringing families together through music, movement, singing, and laughter. I educate families on the importance of musical potential in early development of children and how every child is musical and bring music classes to the East Valley area in Arizona.
I also facilitate recreational group therapy with an emphasis on music for psychiatric acute and residential adolescents/adults. Groups focus on themes of coping skills, mood elevation, guided-imagery meditation, relaxation techniques, reality-orientation, emotional processing, stress relief, and increased self-awareness.
