Kate Comstock is a board-certified music therapist who holds a Bachelor of Arts from the College of Idaho and attained her music therapy credentials at California State University Northridge. She completed her clinical internship at UCLA Mattel Children’s Hospital and currently supports clients through her private practice in Los Angeles.
She discovered her love and passion for supporting families after the birth of her first son. Kate has since focused her study and practice in pre- and post-natal music therapy, which encompasses the care of birthing people during pregnancy and labor and delivery by use of music therapy assisted child birth (MTACB), as well as pre- and post-natal bonding for families. She completed her birth doula training at Bini Birth in order to offer full services to families. Kate champions individualized care and informed choices to her clients and has supported teens, those with autism, and trans-identifying families as they become parents, many for the first time.
As an advocate in the field of music therapy, Kate fully believes in utilizing music therapy as a bridge to connect individuals with another modality of care, especially during the joyous time of welcoming a little one earthside.
Kate won a full scholarship in 2019 to travel to Germany to study the use of music therapy for psychosomatic diagnoses at SRH Hochschule Heidelberg. She also serves as Outreach Coordinator on the board of Mending Mothers, a non-profit providing no-cost services to mothers. Mostly recently, she completed her fellowship in Sound Birthing Music with Dr. Mary DiCamillo to deepen her expertise in utilizing music therapy pre- and post-natally with families. She is now a Sound Birthing Fellow and teaches courses for music therapists and birth professionals.
Aside from birth and babies, you will most often find Kate professionally singing and acting, creating culinary delights in the kitchen, and traveling with her husband and two sons.
