Let me tell you how I have seen Co-founder Veronica Butler's genuine passion for the clients she serves and advocacy for the field of music therapy. As a college student in 2008 preparing to volunteer for an NGO in South America, I got in touch with Veronica because I thought a music therapist might be able to give me a few ideas for ways I could use music with the adolescents I was going to work with. Veronica gave me a ton of her time and passionately shared with me about the depths and possibilities of music therapy, clearly motivated by the meaningful changes she had seen in her own clients. She also encouraged me to pursue a degree in music therapy, an idea I quickly discounted. A year later, I was in touch with her again as I prepared to work with blind children in the Middle East, and again, she directed me to many resources and ideas and suggested that I pursue the fantastic field of music therapy, a calling I still ignored. After witnessing the power of music firsthand in the Middle East, I knew immediately I wanted to pursue music therapy and I knew one of the first people I wanted to talk to about training programs: Veronica Butler. It is so evident that for Veronica music therapy is not just a job but a vocation that she deeply cares about. Beyond passion, Veronica brings a great deal of creativity, resourcefulness and academic strengths to the profession. I would highly recommend Veronica and the Music Therapy Center of Houston to anyone. The community of Houston is fortunate to have the Music Therapy Center of Houston offering these invaluable service regardless of economic status. If you're curious about what it could offer you or someone you know, just ask Veronica!
