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:
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.
