Elizabeth Bautista, MT-BC, LMFTA
Medical Family Therapist, Music Therapist
I am a board-certified music therapist and medical family therapist with years of experience serving a wide range of populations, from older adults to school-aged children in a number of different settings. I am certified as a compassionate bereavement care provider for those who have experienced traumatic loss. I have also received training in working with children and adolescents who have experienced loss. I worked for several years as a hospice music therapist before pursuing a degree in marriage and family therapy in order to further support patients and their families as they navigate the impacts of illness on the family system. I currently work with both pediatric and adult oncology patients. I specialize in helping families face health and life changes, chronic and/or terminal illness, grief, and loss while acknowledging and honoring the intersectionality of each person. With an emphasis on openness and anti-oppressive practice, I aspire to join alongside others as they navigate their own personal and relational journeys.
