"Music therapy is a discipline in which credentialed professionals use music purposefully within therapeutic relationships to support development, health, and well-being. Music therapists use music safely and ethically to address human needs within cognitive, communicative, emotional, musical, physical, social, and spiritual domains.”

Music Therapy in Kitchener

Assessment Package

Our assessment package starts at $230, which includes your first 5 sessions (30 Minutes) and a written assessment report. The music therapist will conduct the assessment where goals for therapy will be created. Between the 5th and 6th session, the music therapist will present the family with the goals and objectives for therapy, which can be discussed and modified. Once mutually agreed upon, the goals and objectives are the basis for the rest of the therapy sessions.
