Welcome back to Therapy Chat! This week host Laura Reagan interviews returning guest Maya Benattar, a music therapist practicing in NYC. Maya’s first interview on Therapy Chat was in 2017 and we’re grateful that she agreed to return for this conversation to talk about rhythm and how it shows up in our lives. Listen to this fascinating discussion of how Maya uses rhythm in her work with clients!

Maya Benattar, MA, MT-BC, LCAT is a music therapist and psychotherapist in private practice in Midtown Manhattan and online throughout NY state. Her specialties include anxiety, developmental/intergenerational trauma and highly sensitive people (HSP).

In addition to her clinical work, Maya offers supervision/consultation for other therapists, provides professional development and wellness workshops, and offers restorative workshops for helpers and healers.

Maya received her master’s degree from New York University, and has completed extensive postgraduate training in vocal psychotherapy, creative arts therapies in trauma treatment, and music and imagery.
