Antonietta (Toni) is one of Creative Minds Music Therapists who works with children and adults to achieve various therapeutic goals, including those of a physical, cognitive, emotional and spiritual nature.
Toni believes in the importance of relationships and the creative self in one’s health and well-being. Music can reach parts of oneself in the most natural of ways, and can be used effectively as a tool tailored for many needs. Music is the most “flexible” of means and it can help in many ways!
Toni has worked in various areas, including early intervention, developmental disabilities, trauma (working abroad in Bosnia, Herzegovina), mental health/emotions awareness/management, bereavement, geriatrics/dementia, VAW/Women and Children’s Shelters, and refugees. Most recently, she is working at the Hospital for Sick Children, in haematology/oncology, trauma, burns, palliative care and general surgery.
Toni continues to have a passion for creating new opportunities for music therapy services in the community. She founded Creative Minds Music Therapy in 2010, and continues to commit to this endeavour.
Toni holds a Masters of Music Therapy from Wilfrid Laurier University.
