How to get Started

     Our music therapist begins every client relationship with a consultation to determine whether music therapy is appropriate and can adequately meet the needs of the individual or group. Our music therapist then begins the first official session with an assessment tailored to the group or individuals particular population.  Some items of information included in the assessment, but not limited to, are determining the level of orientation of the client(s), physical abilities & limitations, emotional triggers, family dynamics, behavioral issues, interpersonal relationships and social skills;  and music preference. The assessment fee is $85 for individuals and varies for groups depending on the size. After the completion of an initial assessment, the music therapist will be able to decide the duration of time for each session, the frequency of visits, as well as, how many sessions would be needed to meet the targeted goals.
