Our Philosophy

Affirming Services is not just a slogan, but truly a treatment approach focused on accessing the whole person to help each individual reach their desired goals.

 

Strategies you might see in session include:

  • Neuroscience-Informed Music Therapy

  • Play-Based Learning

  • Psychotherapy-Informed Music Therapy

  • Strengths-Based Supports

  • Developmental Scaffolding

  • Visual Schedules & PECS

  • Social Stories

  • Validation of AAC & Alternative Communication Systems

 

Because there are many ways to access the mind-body connection, we use multiple approaches to best suit each individual’s needs.

We believe that neurodevelopment, psycho-education, and therapeutic consistency are the keys to lasting growth and change.
