Micaela completed her Bachelor’s Degree in Music Therapy at Capilano University,
then completed a 1000-hour internship at BC Children’s Hospital. Micaela has
worked for 11 years with children in a variety of professional roles. Some of these
roles included private music instruction, accessibility support work, group music
exploration, private tutoring, and childcare. In these diverse positions, her style of
working with children has continually emphasized creativity and expression. She is
trained in Standard First Aid, Music Together ®, and looks forward to pursuing
continued education in relevant areas.
Micaela believes that every child should have the opportunity to express
themselves in a safe and supportive environment. She has extensive experience
working alongside children who’ve experienced complex trauma and is an avid
advocate for the rights of neurodiverse and marginalized children. The safety and
accessibility of expression through music and other creative arts can greatly
contribute to an improved quality of life while also addressing specific goals.
Micaela believes that play is a foundational part of one’s health and incorporates
this philosophy into the work she does. She hopes to work in tandem with your
child as they learn, grow, and thrive.
