In 2015, I founded Miya Creative Care (previously known as Miya Music Therapy) with two clear intentions. The first was to do the work that I love and practice as a Certified Music Therapist working primarily with older adults in long-term care homes. The second was to make as many health and wellness organizations aware of the vast benefits of music therapy as possible so that more individuals could access services that could significantly improve their quality of life.
Through this education and advocacy, I happily found the need for music therapy services increasing and began to onboard an incredible team of music therapists who were dedicated to the company's purpose of empowering and enriching lives.
As our team continued to grow, so did our care partnerships which now include those with senior living homes, hospices, mental health centres, and disability services.
In 2022, we began to offer additional Creative Arts Therapies services including Art Therapy and Dance/Movement Therapy to our care partners and private clients. Providing these expanded services has been an undertaking close to my heart.
I am thrilled that we can now provide a variety of options for clients and patients who may find a certain creative arts modality particularly meaningful and engaging.
I am lucky to work with a wonderful team of Creative Arts Therapists who care deeply about improving the health and wellness outcomes of each and every individual they work with.
I would love to learn more about what brought you here. Please don't hesitate to get in touch!
