Isabelle Spence, MT-BC

Hello, I’m Isabelle! I have been a Board Certified Music Therapist since January 2022, and I am also a Certified Perinatal Coach and doula. I currently see clients in-person or via teletherapy. Currently, I work in the greater North Fort Worth area, as well as Saginaw and Southlake.

I approach therapy through a client-centered and neurlogically-informed lense. I also enjoy using a variety of techniques from various additional philosophies including Dialectical Behavior Therapy, Cognitive Therapy, and trauma-informed care. I believe that our lived experiences influence our brains and how we grow and change in the world. I have worked with a variety of people, with the majority of my experience with disabled individuals, neurodivergent individuals, and clients with mental health needs. In my practice, I prioritize unconditional positive regard, un-masking (if desired), and connecting with your authentic self. I also enjoy implementing a multi-modal approach and bringing in art, agricultural, or writing activities to facilitate creative expression. I also enjoy integrating unique instruments from cultures all over the world.

Outside of work, I enjoy crafting, journaling, painting, and connecting with my creative side! I have two cats and a horse that I love to care for and spend time with. I have recently rediscovered my love of reading and am often nose-deep in a fantasy book and a blanket in the evenings. My other passions include traveling the world, hiking, camping, connecting with nature, cooking, and caring for my plants.

What Our Clients Say

I recommend Heart & Harmony to any family with children and our experience with how they work with neurodivergence and learning differences, how much autonomy and trust they give students, and how supportive they have been of his learning plan has been a total game changer. If I had to cancel every other therapy or support, H&H is the one I would keep.

We believe in what we do. We do it with passion.

Heart and Harmony Music Therapy is a team of like-minded music therapists and music therapy interns who are committed to providing accessible, high-quality music therapy services to the Dallas – Fort Worth community.

When you work with Heart and Harmony Music Therapy, you help us provide our employees with important benefits like health insurance – something that contracted music therapists often don’t have access to. At Heart and Harmony, we believe that top-notch therapy is only possible when therapists and clients alike have top-notch support.

Heart and Harmony believes in honoring the self-identities of our clients. We build upon our clients’ strengths, meeting them where they are and celebrating with them as they grow. We are passionate about client autonomy and the accessibility of our services. We offer flexibility by making services available in-home or in-studio to provide a least restrictive environment. We work with individuals on the Texas CLASS and YES Medicaid waiver programs and also accept private pay clients. Payment plans are available to increase accessibility to the benefits of music therapy.
