Meet Our Team

Backline’s team is made up of mental health practitioners with experience in the music industry — and have made sure that our foundation is both clinically strong and ethically appropriate. The rest of our team comes from the music industry itself. Our approach is based in experiences and a desire to build a sound clinical outlet for a community that so critically needs these services.
