Music Therapy at CTP

CTP has partnered with Boise Music Therapy Company to provide Music Therapy at our Boise office!

Music Therapy is the clinical and evidence-based use of music interventions to accomplish individualized goals within a therapeutic relationship by a credentialed professional who has completed an approved music therapy program. Music Therapy can be used to improve social, cognitive, communication, motor, and coping skills. Music Therapy can also be used to improve emotional awareness. Samantha works with children and adults with developmental disabilities individually and in groups to accomplish their goals in these areas.

Meet the Music Therapists:

Samantha Foote, MT-BC

Samantha’s mission is to strengthen, guide, and empower parents, children, and adults to develop emotional awareness, improve social skills, and gain effective coping skills resulting in improved peer relationships, increased family harmony, and a calmer & more relaxed demeanor. She is a board-certified neurologic music therapist, a Positive Discipline Parent Educator, and a registered Music Together teacher. She obtained a Bachelor of Science degree from Utah State University and recently completed her Masters of Music degree. When she is not working, Samantha enjoys spending time with her husband, children, and extended family. They enjoy fishing, camping, and other outdoor adventures.

Gabrielle Garza, MT-BC

Gabrielle is originally from Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, where she completed 1,200 clinical hours and received her Bachelors in Music Therapy from Temple University. After completing her coursework, Gabrielle was drawn to the Idaho mountains and outdoor lifestyle, which led her to recently re-locate to Boise. Gabrielle believes in the unique ability of music to strengthen bonds between family and loved ones, ultimately guiding the development of her client-centered approach to therapy. Music therapy should revolve around a healthy relationship between client, therapist, and the shared music experience. Gabrielle loves biking around Boise with her dog, working on her garden, and playing guitar in her spare time.
