As a Canadian Credentialed Music Therapist and owner/operator for Embe Music Therapy, I have provided evidence based healing through music for over seventeen years. Specializing in dementia care, conditions of aging, end of life, bereavement, mental health and wellness, I have witnessed how the incredible power of music can create positive change in a person’s life. My goal is to support clients through this process of expansion and growth.

I invite you to experience healing through music.

  • “Maryann brings a caring, empathetic and sensitive presence to her work and is an insightful therapist who is committed to creating safety and supportive growth for her clients.”

    Noele Bird, RCC, MTA, FAMI Registered Clinical Counsellor, Guided Imagery & Music Trainer, Certified Music Therapist

  • “I am confident Maryann would be an asset to any facility’s services. She demonstrated strong skills, abilities and competence in her time at Victoria Hospice. I would hire her again.”

    Wendy Wainwright, Manager of Psychosocial Services, Victoria Hospice Society

  • “I have had two opportunities to observe Maryann with our ECU residents. Her music therapy approach is very loving and professional, she is enthusiastic and sincere. The residents are completely engaged while they are with Maryann. I have thoroughly enjoyed watching this interaction and the spark of recognition when Maryann plays a song they are familiar with. Singing along is always encouraged from the participants. It is the highlight of the day for those who are able to participate in Maryann’s weekly music therapy sessions.”
