How do I get started?

Begin by scheduling your free initial session.  You'll experience online music therapy first hand, as I assess specific needs, interests and preferences.  We'll discuss potential goals and how music therapy can be used to help you or your loved one achieve them.

Benefits of Music Therapy

Your online telehealth music therapy sessions are completely individualized to help you accomplish your desired goals.

Depending upon the client, music experiences may include singing, music listening, movement, instrument play, songwriting, lyric interpretation, guided relaxation experiences with music, improvisation, musical games and experience for cognitive stimulation and other opportunities for creative expression.

Session length is 30-60 minutes, depending upon the client's needs and goals.  To achieve consistent progress towards therapy goals, weekly sessions are recommended.  However, less frequent sessions can be considered in some situations.

Does your loved one live in an assisted living community, long term care facility or group home?  Would you like to join your loved one for a session because it's not possible to visit in person? 

It's possible with Music Therapy at Home!

One of the exceptional benefits of online tele music therapy is that loved ones who aren't present with the client can join the client's session remotely and experience music therapy together.  Whether participating with the client at home or remotely, family members and caregivers benefit from:
  • increased sense of connection that comes from sharing music experiences with your loved one 
  • the joy of seeing your loved one respond positively to music
  • opportunities to learn new skills and approaches to help support your loved one outside of the music therapy session.
