One Year Anniversary of MTSA


It’s hard to believe that it was this time last year when I was contemplating just HOW I was going to start my own private practice.

With patience, persistence, hard work, and the support of friends, colleagues, and family, it happened – Music Therapy Services of Austin was born!

And it has blossomed into more than I ever thought it could be.

To everyone: THANK YOU!



If you are thinking about starting a private practice of your own, I suggest checking out the following resources (books, websites, and more) as a place to start:

Private Practice from the Inside Out (Tamara Suttle)

The Therapy Business Blueprint(Kimberly Sena Moore)

Online Zennn(Kat Fulton)

Music Therapy Reimbursement (Judy Simpson)

Independent Clinician website and the Independent Clinician Guide (Jena Casbon)

Music Therapy Round Table podcast (Kimberly Sena Moore, Michelle Erfurt, Rachel Rambach)

Music Therapy Ed (Kat Fulton)

Pediastaff blog (Heidi Kay)

  • Rachel, this is the 3rd time tonight I have tried to leave this message. WordPress is apparently having some difficulties. What I keep trying to say is . . . CONGRATS to you on your first year of blogging! (Are you as addicted to it as I am?) I’m so glad I found you . . . via Twitter maybe? . . . . You are one of my favorite people and your blog is one that I often recommend my clients look at because it is “clean, airy and professional” and you’ve found just the right balance of information and inspiration, too!

    How kind of you to recommend Private Practice from the Inside Out and my coaching services to your readers! That’s a very high compliment, I know! You music therapy gals really are such fun clients because you come already thinking out of the box (as evidenced by this fun series of posts and your fabulous Inspiration Kits, too!). Thank you for thinking of me and taking time to let your readers know about my blog!

    Wishing you another great year of sharing information and inspiration here on your blog and an abundance of your favorite clients in your practice! Blessings to you on your journey!

    • Tamara, I am incredibly touched by your kind words – wow! (Also, apologizes for WordPress being on the fritz!)
      Thank you so much for being a wonderful supporter, cheerleader, and professional colleague in the therapy world! Your website was one of THE first things I came across when I began my private practice…and I’m so glad I did! I still subscribe to your posts – each one just as special and helpful as the first.
      I’m glad the music therapists have connected with you, as we having an open dialogue with another health care professional, therapist, and a seasoned coach can be beneficial for all of us!
      Thank you, thank you, thank you!!
