I'd love to show you the healing benefits of music through the therapeutic process.

 

About

Kathleen Summers

I’m an advocate for the healing power of music. From an early age music was an anchor in my life, my healing, and my growth. Today, I am a motivated and humble catalyst of bridging health and music for others through music therapy. Within the therapeutic process and relationship, music therapy interventions can be used to support a multitude of needs.

My training as a masters level music therapy clinician coupled with my extensive experiences in medical music therapy, mental health, and professorship have provided me with the groundwork to build my personal practice. My drive to support the present needs of my community in a meaningful way led to the creation of BPM Music Therapy.

It is fact that your heartbeat changes with the music you listen to. As a music therapist, I know change can be sparked through the intentional and meaningful use of music. BPM Music Therapy is about bringing music (beats), process, and meaning together through evidence based practices of music therapy.

From working in perinatal care to end of life and bereavement, I’ve witnessed and helped patients and their families navigate some of the most sensitive, delicate, and challenging times in life through the music therapy process. 

My goal as a music therapy provider is to support clients and families through life’s challenges and from these challenges, to help establish healing and meaning.
