Our Care Partnership Process

1

Book Your Discovery Call

In our discovery call, we'll work together to figure out your needs. We'll also take a look at what resources and spaces are available as well as which of our available packages can suit your your clients best. This helps us set clear goals and work within your budget.

2

Match With a Therapist 

All of our certified therapists are experienced in working with a variety of ages and populations. We'll match you with one of our available team members who aligns with your needs. We'll collaborate to design a tailored program, schedule sessions, and create a comfortable setting in your community.

3

Implement and Monitor

Using our tried and true method of implementation we will provide an initial presentation for your care team, and begin with referrals and assessments. Together, we will create a schedule and caseload and will adjust based on the results we observe, ensuring that the program we've put in place enhances your community's quality of life.

Join Partners who Bring MIYA Creative Care to Their Communities
