Music therapy can be a game changer for teens who are struggling with their mental health. 

Therapy for TWEENS AND TEENS

How Your CHILD BENEFITS:

HOW TO WORK WITH US

1.

SELF EXPRESSION:

Teens will have a private & confidential safe space where they can express themselves and their emotions.

2.

COPING SKILLS:

Teens will learn techniques for how to use music to cope with symptoms, stress, anxiety, and emotions. 

3.

FEEL BETTER:

Teens often experience relief from symptoms as music can increase dopamine and serotonin. 

4.

SELF CARE:

Teens can enjoy music and relaxation experiences that activate the parasympathetic nervous system and help them to relax and practice self care.

5

MAKE PROGRESS:

When brought alongside traditional counseling and psychiatry, music therapy can help your teen  to make faster progress toward their mental health goals.

Music therapy can be a game changer for teens and tweens! We would love to be a part of your child's mental health care. Here are some of the diagnoses and concerns that we work with most frequently:

  • Anxiety

  • Depression

  • Self confidence & self esteem

  • Self harm and suicidal ideation

  • Anger issues

  • Trauma

  • Bullying

  • Loss & Grief

​​

Benefits of music therapy include:

  • ​Your teen will have a private & confidential space where they can express themselves and their emotions.

  • Your teen will learn how to use music as  coping skill to deal with how they are feeling, stress, anxiety, and emotions.

  • Your teen can feel relief from symptoms and feel better as a result of music therapy.

  • Your teen will be better prepared to practice self care as they get older and become independent. 

  • Your teen may improve faster and achieve their mental health goals sooner as a result of adding music therapy to their care plan.

Music therapy sessions can include:

  • Songwriting

  • Music sharing and music listening 

  • Learning music based coping skills

  • Singing and self expression

  • Talking about and relating to song lyrics 

  • Playing instruments (such as piano, guitar, ukulele)

  • Creating musical autobiographies

We do advise families to pursue psychiatric care and traditional counseling prior to seeking our music therapy services. We do not provide professional counseling, but would love to refer you to a counselor that we trust. 

 

We do not accept insurance, but we are happy to provide super bills to submit to your out of network insurance. Music therapy is rarely covered by health insurance policies. Reduced fees may be available on a case by case basis. Fees subject to change.
