Frequently Asked Questions

What is music therapy?

Music Therapy is the clinical and evidence-based use of music interventions to accomplish individualized goals within a therapeutic relationship by a credentialed professional who has completed an approved music therapy program.

Who can receive music therapy?

Individuals of all ages and abilities may benefit from music therapy. Music therapists work with expectant mothers, in Neonatal Intensive Care Units, with children and adults with medical diagnoses, intellectual and developmental disabilities, or mental health needs.

What does a typical session look like?

Because each session is tailored to the individual client’s goals and objectives, there is no such thing as a “typical” music therapy session. Music therapists use client-preferred music to address cognitive, social, emotional, physical, and communication goals using a variety of instruments and therapeutic techniques.

Do you have a facility or do you come to my home?

Either one! Nikki, the clinical director, has an in-home studio in southwest Fort Worth. Most of our therapists do home visits throughout the DFW area.

Do you accept insurance?

Heart and Harmony Music Therapy is considered an out-of-network provider for private insurance companies and services may count toward out-of-pocket deductibles.  We do not file for our clients at this time, but we have an NPI (National Provider Identifier) number and are happy to help you file for private insurance reimbursement by providing an official assessment report, treatment plan, and appropriate CPT codes. We also accept private payment for our services.

How much does a music therapy session cost?

Individual music therapy sessions begin at $75 per hour. Many of our clients receive reimbursement through Texas Medicaid waivers or grant programs. Please contact us for more information about potential reimbursement.
