MUSIC THERAPY
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 an effective treatment for many different types of disabilities and challenges, even in those who are resistive to traditional treatment approaches. Music Therapy is used to improve and enhance the cognitive, physical, social, and emotional well-being of individuals of all ages by setting specific goals accomplished through the creative process. 

MUSIC THERAPY INTERVENTION CAN BE DESIGNED TO:
• Promote Wellness
• Manage Stress
• Alleviate Pain
• Enhance Memory
• Improve Communication
• Promote Physical Rehabilitation

INDIVIDUAL MUSIC THERAPY
Individual sessions enable the therapist to work in the specific needs of the client, 
encouraging self-expression and creative development. Throughout each session, 
we will develop functional non-musical goals, design therapeutic music interventions
 to effectively meet goals, and document and evaluate ongoing progress.


INDIVIDUAL MUSIC THERAPY SESSION RATES:

30 MINUTE SESSIONS: $720
45 MINUTE SESSIONS: $1,080
60 MINUTE SESSIONS: $1,440
