FAQ

Frequently Asked Questions

  • How long do sessions typically last?
    Sessions are 45 minutes unless the therapist recommends otherwise.
  • For how long should I work with a therapist?
    This is completely on a case by case basis. Some clients get what they need out of 5 sessions, others see that music therapy is part of their life for the long term.
  • Do you accept insurance?
    Contact us with your insurance plan, and we will work with you to try and get you covered.
  • Can I change therapists if I want?
    Yes! You can also work with more than one therapist in a given week if that is what’s needed.
  • Do I need musical instruments at home to participate in online music therapy?
    The short answer is no! Amazingly, because of technology, online music therapy can be conducted with or without instruments! If you have an instrument you would like to use or learn during your sessions, please let your therapist know.
  • What can I expect from each session of my online music therapy experience?
    The first few sessions will include some form of assessment where you and your therapist will decide your treatment plan goals. Throughout your treatment period you can expect to participate in therapeutic music experiences. These experiences may include improvising, re-creating, composing, and listening to music with the support of your music therapist.
  • Why should I pay for a music therapist when I can listen to and create music on my own?
    Music can have therapeutic benefits with or without a therapist involved, but music therapy is more than just listening to and creating music. A music therapist can help you reach non-musical goals by using musical interventions. Music therapists are specially trained through an approved music therapy program to help you accomplish your goals. Please see  https://www.musictherapy.org/about/quotes/ for more detailed information about the clinical practice of music therapy and the training required for those who hold the “Music Therapist-Board Certified” (MT-BC) credential.
