COVID-19 UPDATE 2021: I have adapted my services to the pandemic situation.  I offer telehealth music therapy using HIPAA-compliant teleconferencing for those clients who are able to participate in music therapy online.  For those who can’t do online, I am able to offer in-person music therapy following the most current health ministry guidelines.  Currently those protocols include:

  • Symptom screening before sessions (and cancelling without penalty if the client or anyone the client has been in contact with has any cold symptoms).
  • Maintaining 6 feet of physical distance between myself and the client
  • Myself and the client washing our hands before the session
  • Myself and the client wearing masks and/or face shields during the session
  • Sanitizing all instruments and equipment before and after each session

As a contractor, I come to the client’s home (or a convenient place in their community) for each session.  Sessions typically occur once each week (though they can also be less frequent), and usually range from 45 minutes to 1 hour in duration.

Music Therapy Sessions:   One-to-one music therapy with an individual client, focusing on areas the client wants to strengthen.  Areas of focus might include social/communication skills, emotional regulation or expression, cognitive skills, spiritual expression or understanding, and physical strength and coordination.

Adapted Music Lessons:  One-to-one music lessons with an individual student. These lessons aim to help students of all ages and abilities learn basic music skills, songwriting, and basic music theory.

Respite Care:  I am occasionally able to offer respite care for families.  Please note that I do not offer music therapy to anyone during respite shifts.  $25.00/hour, minimum 2 hours per shift.

ABA Framework Music Therapy: For clients working with an Applied Behaviour Analysis team, I am able to adapt many of my interventions to support client goals within a behaviourist framework.  Because I have a background in ABA, I am sometimes available to offer traditional behaviour interventionist (BI) services.  I charge $30.00 per hour for these services.
