She particularly enjoys seeing children and adolescents with autism spectrum disorder (ASD) overcome trauma and grow to their full potential.
Fun fact about Lillian: She knew from 8th grade that music therapy was her calling; she just didn’t know what it was called at that time. During her undergraduate studies of music and psychology, through research, prayer, and curiosity she learned what her passion and this profession were called. During her sophomore year, she found Anderson Music Therapy and Noel Anderson gave her the opportunity to experience music therapy while shadowing Cassie. Now they're co-workers!
