Referrals/Requests for Music Therapy

Haley Music Therapy may take referrals from physicians, Far North Regional Center services Coordinators, family members, care team providers, or from the client as a self-referral. Requests for music therapy can be as simple as calling to inquire about services.

Upon receiving a referral/request, a new client will complete the intake process (filling out forms, providing us with relevant medical and personal history, etc.) and participate in a brief consultation. At this point, a therapist will be assigned and frequency and duration will be determined, along with days/times of sessions.

A new client may be appropriate for group, 1:1 or both individual and group sessions.

Music Therapy Session Rates

Rates for music therapy include direct client sessions, preparation, and documentation. A minimum of one annual report will be provided with updates on progress. If requested, our therapists make every attempt to attend relevant meetings (IEP, Quarterly Meetings, etc.) to provide feedback on our work with our clients as it relates to their overall quality of life.

We also encourage collaboration between providers and care team members. With permission, we will share and communicate appropriate information with care team members to ensure that the best all-around care is provided.

For clients receiving support from Far Northern Regional Center, music therapy can be provided through the Self-Determination Program. Information about the SDA can be provided by your FNRC service coordinator or by clicking HERE.

Some private insurance is accepted. Please contact Haley Music Therapy for more information.
