Clinical Director & Owner

Background
Micaela completed her Bachelor’s Degree in Music Therapy at Capilano University, then completed a 1000-hour internship at BC Children’s Hospital. Micaela has worked for 11 years with children in a variety of professional roles. Some of these roles included private music instruction, accessibility support work, group music exploration, private tutoring, and childcare. In these diverse positions, her style of working with children has continually emphasized creativity and expression. She is trained in Standard First Aid, Music Together ®, and looks forward to pursuing continued education in relevant areas.

Approach
Micaela believes that every child should have the opportunity to express themselves in a safe and supportive environment. She has extensive experience working alongside children who’ve experienced complex trauma and is an avid advocate for the rights of neurodiverse and marginalized children. The safety and accessibility of expression through music and other creative arts can greatly contribute to an improved quality of life while also addressing specific goals.

Micaela believes that play is a foundational part of one’s health and incorporates this philosophy into the work she does. She hopes to work in tandem with your child as they learn, grow, and thrive.
