About Life In Harmony Music Therapy, LLC (LIH): Amy Schaack, MT-BC, founded Life In Harmony Music Therapy, LLC in 2008. The company initially provided services out of individuals’ homes and in 2011 moved to a small office in Onalaska, WI. Since then, the business has continued to grow requiring a larger, state of the art facility and two additional music therapists to be added to the team as independent contractors. We currently work out of a 2000 sq foot clinic, which allows us to provide group and individual services. We are also beginning our mobile music therapy studio in 2015 that will travel to nearby locations to provide clinic-based services in rural WI. LIH currently provides services to over 85+ individuals on a weekly basis and we are reaching capacity with our current therapists’ availability.

HOURS: While we do have some morning and mid-day clients, many of our clients attend school during the day and require after-school appointments. Depending on clients’ needs, your position may include Saturdays. Our clients are seen in their homes, other community locations, at our facility, and in our mobile facility (bus). Most clients receive weekly sessions (30 min/45 min). Please do not apply for this job if you are not available during the early evenings as we will not be able to provide you with adequate hours.

DOCUMENTATION: Ability to articulate the effectiveness of music therapy using a SOAP note and other documentation formats is essential. All of our notes are typed, so word-processing experience is vital. A set amount of documentation time will be allotted for each visit. It is the therapist’s responsibility to learn efficient note writing abilities to keep up with the demands of his/her caseload. Assessments, quarterly reports, treatment planning, data collection, and discharge summaries are also required documentation for our clients.

DRIVING RECORD: A clear driving record is required in order for LIH to use you in our regional areas through the use of our mobile studio. You would not be transporting any individuals, as the bus would remain stationary for the duration of the visit.

LOCATION: Our facility is located in West Salem, WI, which is in the heart of La Crosse County in beautiful, Southwestern Wisconsin.

We do have contracts in an extended area so if you live in Southwestern WI or Southeastern MN we may be able to utilize you without you needing to move!

WORKING FOR A PRIVATE PRACTICE: It is important to understand the unique needs of a private practice and how you play a vital role in the success of the business and LIH’s reputation in the community.
