General Info & Policies
Recurring Music Therapy Sessions
Recurring clients meet with their Music Therapists weekly. The recurring option is great for clients looking for a consistent and reliable schedule, and they are billed on a monthly basis. Music Therapy clients may keep their regular time slot as long as the Music Therapist is available and the monthly payments are made on time.
A La Carte Music Therapy Sessions
For Music Therapy clients who need more flexibility, our A La Carte option is designed so you can sign up as needed. If you have an unpredictable schedule, A La Carte sessions help you engage with Music Therapy when your calendar allows.
