The Center for Music Therapy was founded in 1990 to make music therapy more accessible to the Central Texas area. Services are based on the founding principle of gratitude. Founder and clinical director, Hope E. Young, MT-BC has been in practice in Austin since 1990, working with children, adolescents, adults and older adults. Hope and the center were recently featured in Austin's NSIDE magazine. Click here to read the article. Additionally, Hope was also featured on YouTube's Psychetruth channel.

Since its opening, the Center for Music Therapy has provided services for many area hospitals including St. David's Hospital and Warm Springs Rehabilitation Hospital as well as facilities in Austin, San Antonio, Houston and Corpus Christi. All of our therapists are certified by the Certification Board for Music Therapists.
