Vibroacoustic Harp Therapy (VAHT)

What is Vibroacoustic Harp Therapy?

Vibroacoustic Harp Therapy involves the live performance of harp music amplified through a vibrotactile chair or pad, and directly delivered to a client's body in the form of sound vibration. When the client senses that specific tones or pitches resonate in areas of the body where he/she experiences pain or tension, the VAHT practitioner plays music that features and emphasizes those pitches. The music may be improvised or selected from existing repertoire

How can I schedule a session?

You can schedule a free 10-minute consultation or a VAHT session here.

Sessions take place at the Georgetown Counseling and Wellness offices, in Georgetown, TX. I am also an LPC-S and LMFT-S and provide psychotherapy. VAHT sessions can either be done on their own, or in combination with a counseling session. 

How much do sessions cost?

What does a VAHT session look like? 

Sessions are either 25-30 minutes: $65 or

While lying or sitting in a vibrotactile chair, a client experiences musical tones in different parts of the body at different times. Clients often experience increased body awareness and deep relaxation. Most clients report relief of pain or symptoms, positive imagery and a feeling of being nurtured.
