Today on The Jeff Crilley Show, Jeff sits down with Dr. Dean Beckloff, a Licensed Professional Counselor with Beckloff Pediatric Behavioral Center
This place looks great however website does not mention anything about any type of insurance they accept. I tried calling and kept getting voice mail. No real person was available to answer my question.
Parenting teenagers is tough work. While there's nothing new about that, we can all agree that the pressures teenagers are facing today are far more profound than in generations past. If you have a teenager, or will have a teenager in your home, you will not want to miss our episode today on The Jennifer Hargrave Show with Dr. Dean Beckloff, founder of Beckloff Pediatric Behavioral Center. https://www.drbeckloff.com
I am Robert “Bobby” Berger; I am a Certified Music Practitioner; certified to perform therapeutic music to patients at the bedside. I can also perform for other venues using my skills to heal. I have performed live therapeutic music sessions in various venues such as; hospital, skilled nursing facility, day habilitation, retirement home, and online. I have an expansive selection to perform to meet the needs. Therapeutic music a valued medium reaching people in crisis. Live therapeutic music is non-invasive and can heal without the danger of invasive medicine. Live Therapeutic Music gives the patient in the moment experience that is lacking confined to a bed or wheelchair for example. Live therapeutic Music is tailored to the needs of the patient either their moods or level of pain.

At this time with concerns of COVID-19 I am able to perform Virtual Live Therapeutic Music through the internet either with iPads or other computer equipment.

Working as a CMP, there are many attributes I love being involved with. There are many skills acquired throughout my years that apply. I enjoy sharing my love of music. I get satisfaction reaching others and the results helping them get through their struggles communicating through my music.

Stories of my experience:
I was in the hospital going to my next patient; in the elevator, a man commented it was nice I was performing for people. I asked him if he wanted me to perform for who he was visiting where he commented his wife is in a coma. I said I would be happy to play for her and can be therapeutic. We went to her room and his daughters were there. He asked me if I knew the song 500 Miles; I told him I don’t remember all the words and I didn’t have it on file; we all sang with such beautiful harmony. His wife although in a coma, displayed very positive readings on the monitor showing of many things her blood pressure went way down. The next time I visited, he said before I originally came, they were approached by the nurses and the doctor to consider removing life support. Following my original visit, the decided to keep her on life support.

Finishing the day on Neuro ICU and closing out at the nurses station, one nurse told me a patient’s daughter was really stressing out and was having difficulty accepting the staff couldn’t do enough. The daughter saw me across the hall and asked if I could play for her mother; I accepted happily.
I played appropriate music for the patient which was also pleasant for her daughter. Following a few songs and instrumentals, her daughter asked me if I knew and Jewish songs. I replied I did and played some standards. She was so elated and relaxed; her mother (actually the patient) relaxed also.

Hello, is this office currently operating? I sent a contact request a while ago. Got a call from someone who said I’d have to talk to the intake coordinator. Then an email. I responded to the email three times so far with no response from Vanessa. Her initial email told me to call the office if I wanted to schedule an appointment. I called, and they told me I had to email her. What is wrong with this communication cycle? My three kids need help, and I’m beginning to think this office needs new staff who actually care about kids and obtaining new and interested clients.
Life in the age of COVID-19 brings some incredible challenges for young people and a host of emotions with it—anxiety, stress, anger and disappointment, hopes dashed, and loss.

Testing results often provide valuable information for prescribing physicians and schools in the process of formulating academic accommodations.

A thorough diagnostic process represents a crucial step for children and their families as they navigate the road to recovery.
