Ashley Carroll, MA, MT-BC, has been a Board-Certified Music Therapist since 2011. She received her bachelor’s degree in Music Therapy from Eastern Michigan University. She completed clinical hours in various settings, including a children’s hospital, university music therapy clinic, elementary and middle school classrooms for individuals with development-related diagnoses, a community mental health center, and a group home for adults. Her internship experience was in both the general hospital setting and a continuing care facility. During her time at the hospital, she gained experience working in various departments, including the NICU, ICU, cardiac unit, inpatient rehabilitation, and inpatient psychiatric care. While at the continuing care facility, she found a passion for working with older adults, especially those living with dementia.
After finishing her internship, she began working in hospice as a home care music therapist. She found her work rewarding and was privileged to be a part of her clients’ end-of-life journeys. She used music to help patients and families process their experiences through music, life review, and legacy projects.
Most recently, Ashley has completed her master’s degree from Saint Mary-of-the-Woods. Her thesis project was a program that helps military families build resilience and deepen familial and community bonds. She looks forward to bringing this program to Hampton Roads.
Ashley is a military spouse and mother to two beautiful children who keep her on her toes! She is excited to join the Tidewater Music Therapy team. She looks forward to making music therapy more accessible to those who need it!
