Tim Ringgold has been a board-certified music therapist since 2008. He has provided music therapy to thousands of teens and adults in residential treatment, and is a sought after speaker, having shared the stage with some of the top minds on the subject of music and the brain. Tim was the first person to give a TEDx talk on music therapy in 2012. Tim is also a former Regional President of the American Music Therapy Association. Personally, Tim walked into his first 12-step room on February 17, 2003, so he knows first-hand what it's like to work and play a program of recovery.
