Welcome! This is the website and blog for Heartland Music Therapy in Wichita, Kansas. I look forward to sharing all kinds of music therapy-related information with you all!

I love what I do, and I love to see how music can positively affect so many people. I truly look forward to what the future has in store!

  1. Hi Mahleah Lavin,

    What a great website! I just recently moved to Wichita from WA state and am currently working at a VA hospital in Wichita as a Recreation Therapist. I am trained in Music Therapy and my first love will always be for this amazing profession 🙂 Everyone (and I mean everyone) can benefit from Music Therapy. The VA Hospital I am working at has never had a Music Therapist employed (even as a Recreation Therapist) and I am spreading the word about Music Therapy. Advocacy is so important for our profession and I will be a strong voice in Wichita for Music Therapy with Veterans! I received my first MT referral today and the future of Music Therapy in our area is looking bright. I will continue to spread the word.
