At the Cadenza Center for Psychotherapy and the Arts in Hollywood, Florida, a dedicated roster of therapists, educational and behavioral consultants treat the developmental, emotional, cognitive, physical, and behavioral needs of both adults and children. Founded in 2001 by Michelle Hintz, Psy.D., a licensed psychologist and board-certified music therapist, the Cadenza Center provides general services including individual and family therapy incorporating active treatment strategies such as sensory integration, DIR/Floortime, and social pragmatics. We invite you to browse our website for more information about our services and our team.
Having begun her career as a music therapist over 30 years ago, our Founder and Director was inspired by the power of the arts to make meaningful positive changes in her clients. Originally providing only music therapy services, our founder was passionate to fill a need in the community for more comprehensive treatment. She obtained her Doctorate in Psychology and expanded services to align with this broader vision. The Company’s name comes from the word “cadenza,” which is the musical term for a solo musical performance that showcases the performer’s virtuosity and improvisational skills. The Cadenza Center builds on the use of this term as a metaphor to describe our approach to services as supporting individuals while promoting health and healing.
