Biographical Info

Autumn McClintock is a Board Certified Music Therapist residing in Tempe, Arizona. She graduated from Arizona State University's music therapy program in 2018. After graduating, she became certified in Neurologic Music Therapy and Habilitation, and received her board certification in 2019. She completed her music therapy internship with Mind-Full Music Therapy in Phoenix, AZ under the expertise of Debi Kret, MM, MT-BC, NMT.

Mind-Full provides school and community programs for autism, learning disabilities, traumatic brain injuries and special needs. Her nine years of professional work with children and adults with ASD, integration of NMT techniques, understanding of trauma, and ability to adapt on the go allow each client to feel empowered while meeting their goals.

Autumn is Filipinx American, and was raised in a military family in the Midwest. This unique upbringing allows her to have a personal understanding of the importance of heritage and cultural awareness, as well a sensitivity to trauma and PTSD within the family.

In August of 2020, Autumn announced the start of her own private practice, Open Air Music Therapy. OAMT holds sessions on site at Phoenix Conservatory of Music, which they are partnered with. Having her own practice allows her to integrate her expertise and culture into her work while being in direct relation to her community.

Outside of music, Autumn is a gardening enthusiast, and an adventurous foodie. She loves learning and can be found intensely staring at installations at the Phoenix Art Museum or plants at the Desert Botanical Garden.

Autumn joined the AZMTA board in September of 2021 as the vice president. She plans to integrate the cultural concept of kapwa (loosely translates: 'space, both, and human') into Arizona's music therapy scene. This creates opportunities in which music therapists can heal and grow together while understanding how their strengths add to the whole of our field, and are an important aspect of their communities.
