Arianna and Stephenie met in November 2015 and instantly became close friends. As co-interns (or costars, as they enjoyed calling each other), they spent a lot of time together discussing session ideas, exploring the city of Pittsburgh, and watching 30 Rock. Although they are fairly well-versed in all three of those subjects, this blog will mainly focus on music therapy interventions and other topics related to their experiences as new professionals in this exciting field.
Arianna currently works with children and young adults with disabilities, mainly autism and emotional/behavioral disorders. Stephenie works with children that have witnessed domestic violence. They both have a wide range of clinical experience in other populations, including pediatrics, mental health, special education, and geriatrics.
