DBT Skills Mastery through Music

About Us

We are a group of Board Certified Music Therapists who have completed Behavioral Tech’s DBT Skills Training Program, as well as an in-depth year long DBT informed Music Therapy program that includes 11 months of clinical supervision from a DBT-Linehan Board of Certification Certified PsyD clinician.  We all have experience facilitating DBT informed music therapy groups, and are often found co-leading groups with psychologists, social workers, and other DBT skills group leaders.

Deborah Spiegel MT-BC

Deborah Spiegel MT-BC was first introduced to DBT in 2001 when she worked as a member of a Dialectical Behavior Therapy based treatment team at the Colorado Mental Health Institute. She was trained in DBT alongside her treatment team by representatives of Behavioral Tech.

Being a Board- Certified Music Therapist, she found herself using music to teach the skills in her DBT skills training groups, and also reinforcing the DBT skills in her music therapy groups. Over the next 11 years this evolved into her passion for using music therapy to support patients in strengthening DBT skills. 

Author of a book in 2010,  the 2nd edition, called Creative DBT Activities Using Music – Interventions for Enhancing Engagement and Effectiveness in Therapy, was published by Jessica Kingsley Publishers in 2020.

Deborah’s passion for integrating DBT with music therapy  led her to spearhead a research project.  Plus it led her to present workshops nationwide since 2011, and eventually online. 

She is CEO and director of The Spiegel Academy, which provides online continuing education for music therapists and allied professionals. This includes specializing in providing a comprehensive DBT informed music therapy training program in conjunction with Dr. Lauren Bonavitacola.

Bailey Hinz MT-BC

Bailey Hinz has always had a love of music and of people. While earning a bachelor’s degree in music from North Central College, she spent summers as a camp counselor, an experience which inspired her to further pursue work in a helping profession. 

In 2013, Bailey received her master’s degree in music therapy from Colorado State University; her graduate thesis was on the utilization of therapeutic music for young women with negative body perception and disordered eating.

Bailey has had the opportunity to work with a variety of populations including mental health, at risk youth, substance abuse, veterans’ needs, hospice, autism spectrum, developmental disability, and diseases of aging. Her greatest passion and life’s purpose, however, lies in mental/ behavioral health.

She loves incorporating music and other creative arts to affect meaningful change in the lives of individuals she serves. 

To continue her growth as a clinician, Bailey received her designation as a DBT informed Music Therapist through Behavior Tech and The Spiegel Academy in 2017.

In her free time, Bailey lives an active lifestyle. She enjoys running, cycling, swimming, camping, and hiking with her trusty pup Benji.

Stephen King MT-BC

Stephen King explored his interest in Music and Psychology with his undergraduate work at Harding University, after which he studied the Masters in Music Therapy program at Texas Woman’s University. 

His Music Therapy career allowed for experience with older adults, addiction and recovery, children with developmental challenges, and most recently adolescents with behavioral and emotion regulation difficulties.

 In early 2018, Stephen enrolled in The Spiegel Academy in conjunction with Behavioral Tech, to earn his designation as DBT informed Music Therapist. 

Combining his interest in electronic music and technology, Stephen brings unique skills to the community of Music Therapy with sessions both online and in-person.
