Creativity, Knowledge, and Resources. Rolled into one community.

There were so many times throughout my career working with children that I questioned my knowledge. I questioned my knowledge of:

General child development
Counseling skills for children
Musical and Play development for typical and atypical learners
Child mental health, wellness, and trauma
Supporting the emotional and social needs of all children

Most of all I questioned if I was alone in feeling this (spoiler alert: I wasn’t). Here is the good news; you don’t have to question those things. If you find yourself asking these questions, then this community is for you.

You’ll save time because it’s all in one place.
You’ll save energy because the information is tailored just for you.
You’ll save money because you’ll gain CMTE credits for participating.
The best part? You’ll GAIN a community to lean on, to learn from, and to grow with.

In this community, you will also…

  • learn about child mental health, development, music, creativity, and play skills
  • take part in 15 group consultation calls (schedule of topics below)
  • receive access to a private Facebook group with like-minded therapists
  • opportunity for individual office hours with Kate to dive into your needs
  • obtain access to all of the protected resources and old newsletter content
  • receive HUGE (50%) discounts on courses (more coming soon!)

Children now, more than ever, need supportive adults in their lives who can easily enhance their mental wellness. Whether we are supporting bi-lateral coordination, turn-taking, eye contact, or using a talker, WE will always have the opportunity to support the emotional well-being of children.

If this sounds like a place for you, contact me to get on the waiting list! The community will open in September 2020 with only a VERY limited number of spots (there are only a few spots left!), so reserve yours below before it fills up. You can download the full description here.

How Does This Work?

This is easy peasy lemon-squeezy.

First, you’ll be sent an email with your membership login and password. From here you will be able to access the “members only” area of the website where you will find interventions, songs, visuals, videos, and all material ever created in Creative Therapy Umbrella.

Then, you will then receive access to the private Facebook group for community members only. This is a safe space for us to come together as clinicians and share ideas, learn from each other, and have fun!

You will be sent a zoom link for every group consultation call (click here to view schedule and topics) directly to your email. These links will also be provided in the private Facebook group.

Throughout the year, I will open up additional office hours for 30-minute private consultation calls to support you with your direct and individualized needs as a clinician.


Frequently Asked Questions

Why do I need to know this information to be a great clinician?
When we develop goals, create treatment plans, and implement interventions, we need to know age-appropriate development and emotional development. How do we know where to support if we don’t know what children should be doing at a particular age? For example, do you know when children begin to pretend play (which is essential for healthy development)? How do you support that skill? What types of phrases can you say in the therapy room to enhance creative thinking, support emotional development, and demonstrate empathy? 

What are the group consultation calls like?
The most fun ever (but I am biased!) Each call I will present information, resources, and clinical examples on a particular topic. From here, we will open up to questions and focus on how to apply this information into your sessions and your work!

Can I join for just one month?
Unfortunately, no. At this time the membership is an annual commitment with the option to pay monthly or annually.

Is this just for music therapists?
No! Clinicians, educators, caregivers, and parents can find this space incredibly useful to develop their knowledge of child development as well.


What Is The Schedule Like?

Group Consultation calls will occur on every 3rd Monday at 9:00 PM EST. Three additional calls are scheduled throughout the year. You can view the full schedule and topics here.

Themes will focus on learning new information, applying ideas to sessions, and open discussion.

Links and recordings of group consultation calls will be sent via email and be available in a private Facebook group. Reminders for each group consultation and link will be sent out before each consult. A detailed schedule can be found here. The topics include:

Welcome & Child Development, Child Play Development, Child Musical Development, Play Therapy Skills, Relational Neurosciences, Infant Mental Health, Open Consultation & Resource Share, New Member Welcome & Goals, Theater Play and Music, Art in Music, Non-musical Toys in Music, Multi-Sensory Interventions, Multicultural Considerations, and More Play Therapy Skills.
