Kayce Soros is a Board Certified Music Therapist currently practicing in Indianapolis, Indiana. She received her bachelor’s degree in music therapy from Slippery Rock University and is training to become a Somatic Experiencing Practitioner through the Somatic Experiencing Trauma Institute. Kayce views and practices music therapy from a variety of lenses, including feminist theory and social justice, trauma-informed practice, and the Polyvagal theory. She is passionate about understanding the autonomic nervous system, our bodies’ natural responses to trauma, and ways in which therapists can best support individuals who might be “stuck” in a trauma response. Through these perspectives, she aims to educate both therapists and clients about how their unique life experiences have helped shape them into amazing, resilient individuals as they work toward achieving their life goals.
