Mary Ross BMT, MTA

Mary Ross received her Honours Bachelor of Music Therapy with a Minor in Psychology in 2016 from Wilfrid Laurier University, then completed her 1000 hour internship at Sunnyside Seniors Services in Waterloo as a part of her accreditation as a music therapist (MTA), which she was awarded in 2017. Mary has recently moved back to her beloved hometown of Goderich, where she uses her compassionate, eclectic, creative, and humanistic approach to facilitate positive change and increase client’s quality of life. Working with clients in long-term and palliative care have been Mary’s passion, and her reason for perusing music therapy. While being proficient in guitar and piano, Mary often finds a way to incorporate her principal instrument, the harp, in most of her music therapy sessions.

In addition to music therapy, Mary is currently studying part-time at Laurier’s Martin Luther College as she peruses her Masters of Arts in Theology, Spiritual Care and Psychotherapy.
