How it works...
A free consultation call will be offered up to 25 minutes, providing us the opportunity to learn about each other. You can explore what my main therapeutic traits are, ask questions, and share some information on what you are looking to accomplish for you and your loved ones. We can then talk about what the therapy process might look like together. From here, you can decide if you would like to move forward with services, whenever you are ready.
Consent and intake
If you are ready to start services together, call or email me to let me know what type of service you are looking for. You can suggest how frequent and how long you prefer sessions to be. The length of a session may depend on how long your child may benefit during one sitting. I do recommend starting with sessions once a week to provide continuity, as we get to know each other. I will set up a client account for you on my servicing platform and send you a few forms before starting. They will include intake information, policies, payment, options for an instrument package, and consents. We will then be ready to schedule our sessions.
This session will be our first long meeting, exploring different types of music, instruments, and engaging in musical-play. Through observation and interaction, we will get to know each other more closely. I will be able to assess ways your child lives, behaves, and interacts with you or another. These are non-judgmental observations, which will allow me to gather information and process future goals for you and your child. We can move at your pace and explore goals and topics together.
scheduling and cancellations
For most clients, I recommend sessions to be once a week, to explore therapy within some continuity. This also allows for your child to have a sense of familiarity when coming to therapy. If you are unable to attend a session, please cancel at least 24 hours beforehand. If you cancel past this time, you may be charged for the full rate of the session. This being said, I understand that sometimes life happens, and therefore we will work together to make this process as seamless as possible. If I must reschedule, I will offer alternative times for our session.
billing and pricing
I am strictly private pay at this time. You can make your payment through your client account system by paying with Credit Card.
I offer 20 minute, 30 minute, 45 minute, and 60 minute sessions, depending on what makes the most sense for you and your child. Please inquire about pricing, depending on the length of your session.
insurance and reimbursement
I do not take insurance at this time and therefore I am considered an “Out of Network” service. Some insurances will reimburse you for part or all of psychotherapy services. If you would like to submit to your insurance, please inquire with me for these detailed invoices. This includes the document you can submit to your insurance for reimbursement. Reimbursement depends on your insurance plan. That said, you will be responsible for your full session fee upfront each session.
