Christine Barron, MT

 

“I am very passionate with Music Therapy and helping others. My good friend Scott, who had Quadriplegia, was a source of inspiration. Scott used music as a way of  self-expression.  After making his own CE with his music therapist, Scott reminded me that the effect of music is boundless.”

Christine is starting her career as a music therapist at FAR and will serve FAR clients in several of FAR’s locations. She is working towards getting board certified as a music therapist.

Christine received her Bachelors of Music Therapy with a minor in Psychology from Western Michigan University. Christine graduated Magna Cum Laude, was on the Dean’s List and received the College of Fine Arts Collin’s Scholarship.

Christine completed her 900 hour internship at the VA Medical Center where she gained experience working with adults with PTSD, various forms of M.I., substance abuse, cognitive impairment of various types and palliative care.
