Music therapy is the clinical and evidence-based use of music interventions to accomplish individualized goals within a therapeutic relationship by a credentialed professional. It is a well established allied health profession that uses music therapeutically to address behavioral, social, emotional, communicative, physical, sensory motor, and/or cognitive functioning.

An assessment session is the required first step. In this session, the therapist will review the case history and evaluate the individual’s musical strengths and needs as well as determine their response to music therapy interventions. After the assessment, the therapist follows the individual treatment goals in the delivery of weekly music therapy intervention. The assessment typically takes 2 sessions to complete.
Individuals are generally seen once a week for 40-60 minutes, dependent upon need and availability. Progress is evaluated and treatment may last from several weeks to several years. No long term contracts are required and clients may choose to discontinue service at any time. For therapeutic purposes, two weeks notice is requested.
