Please contact our office to discuss your needs and schedule your first session. JB Music Therapy welcomes new clients all year round.
Our core value is creating connection – connection to music, connection to our agency partners, connection to our clients and their families, and the team’s connection to one another.
We believe there is no more efficient and effective treatment to create the feeling of connection in a therapeutic context, than music therapy.
Although not covered by basic health care plans, music therapy services may be covered by some extended health programs and insurance plans. Contact your employer or insurance provider to inquire about MT services and coverage.
