About the Therapists

Catherine Black_5-hiresCatherine graduated from the University of Georgia with a degree in Music Therapy. As a music therapist, she is known for her innovative and creative approaches for working with clients. Before opening her own private practice, Catherine completed an internship with Fulton County School’s Music Therapy program, where she served a variety of children with special needs in all grades. Catherine originally became a music therapist because she had experienced first hand the power of music in her own life and wanted to use that power to help others. Catherine’s favorite part of being a music therapist is being able to witness the milestones her clients achieve first hand.  When she is not in sessions, you can find her hiking with her dogs, Ziva and Bentley, or exploring different Atlanta restaurants.
