Come join us!

We are a growing and are seeking applicants interested in joining a small synergetic team either part-time or full-time in the early summer 2022 (flexible start-date).  The majority of our practice focuses on older adults. While we work primarily with adults with dementia, we also serve adults of all ages with developmental disabilities, neurological disorders, and adults in hospice care. We travel to our clients as they mostly reside in skilled nursing and assisted living care communities, as well as in private residences with carepartners. Our territory includes the city of Chicago, south, west, and north suburbs. Our new team member’s caseload will consist of both individual and group work, and will be scheduled according to location. We are looking for an independent music therapist who can manage their own caseload of individual and group sessions. However, our team has over 20 years of combined experience and we collaborate closely sharing knowledge, expertise, and resources.​ ​
