Refuge Music Therapy is dedicated to our veterans! Music is a deeply personal experience, yet provides structure and a safe environment to express emotions, ideas, and creativity. Music therapy is often an enjoyable experience, while still providing an outlet to express and process emotional concerns. It’s not all that serious, though! Music is supposed to be fun and social. Music therapy uses all types of music, from improvising with drums, songwriting, playlist creation, learning instruments and music, and so much more.

Music Therapy + Veterans in Eugene and Springfield, OR
At times, you may not want to talk about what you’re feeling, but still need to express what you’re feeling. Music is a safe way to express your experience without judgement. Music therapists may use music listening and lyric analysis to prompt discussion, improvise on a theme determined with therapist and client, write songs on important topics or for recreation, or explore themes through guided imagery enriched by music.
It doesn’t take any musical experience to enjoy music therapy, and instruments are provided!
