Julia Beth Kowaleski is an accredited music therapist (MTA), receiving her initial music therapy training at Wilfrid Laurier University. She has advanced training in neurologic music therapy (NMT) and completed the Masters of Music and Health and Collaborative Program in Neuroscience at the University of Toronto. She is current president of the Music Therapy Association of Ontario. Julia’s Place opened in the summer of 2017. It provides quality music therapy programs for clients with a variety of needs and abilities while specializing in neuro-rehabilitation and child and youth development.
The COVID-19 situation is a difficult time for many people and the need for stimulation, working on goals, and finding ways to deal with extra stress and anxiety is prevalent. We are pleased to be able to offer support. While there are differences from in-person sessions, it is amazing to see the many benefits that our clients receive. Online music therapy sessions primarily take place on a secure “telemedicine” platform which ensures that all sessions are confidential (it complies with PHIPA/PIPEDA requirements). The high quality video and audio allows for interaction between the therapist and the people participating.
