Michael Veneziale
Self Pay Rate: $99

Michael Veneziale, MA, MT-BC, LPC

Philosophy of Care

Michael is a Board-Certified Music Therapist, Licensed Professional Counselor, and Certified Practitioner of Accelerated Resolution Therapy (ART). He brings a psychodynamic, person-centered approach to his therapy work and focuses on client strengths and interpersonal relationships. He is caring and nonjudgmental and believes that creating a safe space is of the utmost importance so that clients can feel free to be who they are and the therapeutic relationship can flourish.

Michael earned his Bachelor of Arts degree from College of the Holy Cross and his Master of Arts in Music Therapy from Drexel University. In addition to his music therapy work, he has undergone training specific to trauma recovery, cultural awareness, adolescents, and the LGBTQAI+ population. He has worked in crisis center, drug and alcohol rehab, inpatient psychiatric, school, and transitional housing settings with children, adolescents, and adults.

Michael's training in ART allows him to support clients who are motivated to change but reluctant to share about any struggles they may have, ranging from depression and anxiety to substance abuse to complex trauma. Michael's music therapy training allows clients to use live and recorded music to achieve non-musical goals such as increasing self-esteem, coping with depression and anxiety, recovering from substance abuse, and mastering symptoms of trauma. Michael believes that music can say for us what we often struggle to say for ourselves; to this end, music therapy is ideal for people who struggle to express their feelings verbally. Even so, Michael is adept at facilitating talk-therapy sessions to meet the needs of the client and incorporates cognitive-behavioral therapy techniques into his work.
