Kayce received her bachelor’s degree in music therapy from Slippery Rock University of Pennsylvania and completed her music therapy internship at A Child’s Place at Unity House in Troy, NY. Upon completion of her internship, Kayce became board certified in August, 2014. She immediately began working as a board-certified music therapist in Indiana and joined the Insights team in December, 2018. Currently, Kayce is studying Somatic Experiencing through the Somatic Experiencing Trauma Institute in pursuit of becoming a Somatic Experiencing Practitioner (SEP).
Due to her background in feminist theory and knowledge in somatic therapies, Kayce views and practices music therapy from an a variety of lenses – including feminist theory and social justice, trauma-informed practice, and Polyvagal theory. She is passionate about understanding the human nervous system, our bodies natural responses to trauma, and ways in which therapists can best support individuals who might be “stuck” in a trauma response. Through these perspectives, she aims to educate clients about how their unique life experiences have helped shape them into amazing, resilient individuals as they work toward achieving their life goals.
When she’s not making music with clients, Kayce can be found outside enjoying nature, baking for her friends, playing the piano, cuddling with her cats, or sitting on her porch with a book and a cup of tea in hand.
