A Pandemic of Grief

One year ago the Covid-19 pandemic startled the world. With over 30 million cases recorded to date, the pandemic has caused a drastic shift in our everyday living. Will life ever be “normal” again? While that question still remains, one thing is known; grief has impacted all of our lives in some way.

Grief is defined as “the natural response to losing someone or something that is important to you.” Although conventionally focused on the emotional response to loss, grief also has physical, behavioral, cognitive, cultural, social, spiritual and philosophical dimensions as well. Losses such as a loved one, financial and job related losses, the feeling of normalcy, social and familial interaction, and certain freedoms we may have taken for granted have caused grief to be present in our current lives. Anxiety, depression, sadness, loneliness, and hopelessness are all common symptoms that can accompany grief.

While this is still a difficult time for many, Metro Music Therapy is here to provide ongoing support and comfort. Our experienced staff understand the difficulty and uniqueness of each circumstance faced by our clients. Metro recognizes that grief has no timeline and that your feelings and thoughts are valid. You are not alone.

If you or someone you know are interested in our grief and loss services, please visit the contact tab on our website to fill out our client intake form. You can also call us at 404.510.3799 if you have any further questions.

Why Music?

One of the strengths that music holds is that it can encourage, uplift and support. It can and does at times remind us of better days ahead and that we have the internal strength to get to those better days.

But I also believe that, unlike most other things in this world, music has the power to meet us where we are in the dark and deeply sorrowful places. It validates our feelings and acknowledges them without the push to also remind us of the good ahead. Music can just sit with us, free of judgement and opinion, and instead of saying, “this too shall pass,” say, “this hurts so much.”

The power and science behind music therapy comes from knowing what we need from music and when.

We are with you, and we are for you. Let us know how we can help you.

Happy Holidays!

Here we are: at the end of 2020!

As I think over this past year, I feel overwhelmed by the collective loss of normalcy that we have all experienced.

Simultaneously, I feel overwhelmingly grateful for our clients, patients, business partners, and colleagues, for sticking by us through these very hard, yet very meaningful times.

Now more than ever, we want to express our gratitude for you, your families, your passion for the services we offer, and for your faithfulness to our company.

We wish you nothing less than joy, happiness, and togetherness with the ones you love this season and in the new year.

Stay well, stay healthy, and please let us know how we can continue to support you.

With sincere gratitude and love,

Singing Grams are Back!

We delivered a lot of smiles and quite a few happy tears through our very own MMT Singing Grams this spring … and what better way to wrap up this unprecedented year of 2020 by doing it all again, but this time with a little Holiday flair!
