Jon Burkhart, RP
Jon is a graduate of Wilfrid Laurier’s Master’s of Music Therapy Program. This program provided him with training in clinical musicianship and psychotherapeutic techniques. Since graduating, he has completed DBT Skills and Neurologic Music Therapy training.
Prior to pursuing music therapy, Jon had experience as a mental health social worker and musician. While facilitating groups in a psychosocial rehabilitation day program, he became aware of the impact
music can have in a therapeutic relationship.
As an Accredited Music Therapist (MTA), Jon has worked with diverse ages populations to address cognitive, communicative, emotional, social, physical and spiritual domains.
Jon is passionate about using music as a tool for self-expression. Music, as a form of play, is essential to health and well-being, and can support individuals and groups in their unique healing and self-
actualization process. Jon is happy to support others in this journey in session.
