OUR MISSION, FOCUS & PHILOSOPHY

As a family-centered practice, it is our mission to wholly support the family system through arts-based therapies and developmental programs for children. We value the arts and their natural place in health care. We strive to empower individuals of all ages through creative self-expression and promote the development of healthy relationships. We are devoted to our clients, our community, and our own. We are family members ourselves, and employment with the Sonatina Center means being part of a family unit. In addition to helping our client families grow and develop, the Sonatina Center is devoted to the growth and development of each provider. Whether an employee, intern, or volunteer, continuing education and research-based practice lay the foundation for our work.  We are committed to the growth of our profession and actively advocate for the arts in health care.

Our primary focus is to design and implement the most effective treatment for each individual, helping them reach their full potential. We are committed to continually educating the public on the applications and outcomes of creative arts therapy and promoting the evidenced-based therapeutic value of professionally administered music and art therapy services from an educationally qualified and clinically trained therapist. We strive to maintain a high degree of professionalism and integrity, keep current on research trends, repertoire, and techniques. 

OUR STORY

We are a team of music and art therapists offering unique creative arts therapies and creative arts enrichment classes for children and adults throughout our community. The Sonatina Center was founded by Marissa Scott in 2011, originally under the name, Sonatina Music Therapy. We saw our first clients in their homes, schools, and medical centers. As we have grown we have moved into a beautiful space in Dover, NH. Our center houses two individual therapy rooms, and two medium size therapy rooms perfect for intimate size groups and workshops. Our handicap-accessible facility also houses a large waiting room, private restroom and plenty of on-site parking. We partner with many organizations in the community to bring music and art therapy to schools, hospitals, community centers and assisted living facilities.
