Marcie Friedman, CEO
Marcie received her Bachelor of Music degree in Music Therapy with an emphasis in voice, from Arizona State University in 2001. She continued her studies in Music Therapy by becoming certified as a Neurological Music Therapist under the mentorship of Dr. Michael Thaut. This certification is very rare as only a small percentage of Music Therapists have been able to attain this designation.
Marcie has been practicing Music Therapy for more than 18 years within a variety of settings and special needs populations. Her skills are flexible enough to accommodate all levels of disabilities. Since a majority of Marcie's clients have been on the autism spectrum, she is considered a specialist in this field. Marcie continues to educate the public by providing live music therapy sessions and giving talks and in-services regarding the benefits and proven results of Music Therapy.
She also owns Complete Therapies, L.L.C. which offers Medical Massage, Recreational, and Aquatic Therapy services.
