GABRIELLE GARZA, MT-BC
Gabrielle is originally from Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, where she completed 1,200 clinical hours and received her Bachelors in Music Therapy from Temple University. After completing her coursework, Gabrielle was drawn to the Idaho mountains and outdoor lifestyle, which led her to recently re-locate to Boise. Gabrielle believes in the unique ability of music to strengthen bonds between family and loved ones, ultimately guiding the development of her client-centered approach to therapy. Music therapy should revolve around a healthy relationship between client, therapist, and the shared music experience. Gabrielle loves biking around Boise with her dog, working on her garden, and playing guitar in her spare time.
