Alexandra (Alex) Timoshenko is a board-certified music therapist, and will complete her requirements for New York State licensure as a creative arts therapist in the fall of 2024. She earned both her Bachelor of Science Degree in Music Therapy with a Minor in Psychology (2021) and her Master of Science Degree in Music Therapy (2023) from Molloy University. Though she had the incredible opportunity to work and learn in a variety of settings during her clinical training, including a special education preschool, nursing/rehabilitation home, childcare facility, and pediatric medical hospital, her current passion is in private practice. She serves as the Program Coordinator at The Music Academy for Special Learners, a New York based private practice servicing people of all ages and abilities. There, she co-runs the clinic alongside Owner and Director Nick Farr, coordinates events within the community, develops and expands creative arts therapy programs, works clinically as a music therapist, and clinically supervises undergraduate and graduate music therapy students. Alex feels very connected to her work with individuals with intellectual/developmental disabilities, and dedicated her thesis research project titled How Music Therapists Experience Improvising with Nonspeaking Clients: A Thematic Analysis (a study that explores music therapists’ subjective experiences improvising with nonspeaking clients diagnosed with intellectual disabilities) to this work. Right now, Alex is working on her PhD in Counseling and Psychological Studies with a Concentration in Human Services at Regent University.
