What makes therapy work? Truly connecting with your therapist. Bottom line. Research has proven the biggest reason change happens in therapy is not based on techniques and specific interventions as much as the therapeutic relationship itself.
This is why I only take a few individuals at a time and keep my groups small. I want to be fully present and take the time to really hold space for what needs to emerge in therapy. As an art therapist, I also want to allow my clients the time they need to create in session without the frustration of the time constraints often imposed by insurance.
Payment and Rates
I provide individual sessions based on your needs and what we discover during the in-take process. I accept cash, VISA, or MASTERCARD. You are responsible for full payment at the time of services and can check with your insurance regarding out-of-network reimbursement. I offer a discount package as noted below for investing up-front in a minimum of 6 sessions.
The intake session is a time to collect information and begin developing a treatment plan that will work for you and your child. It can feel like the inquisition and is not what a therapy session will feel like, but it is very important and gives both parties an opportunity to set realistic expectations and decide if we are a good match.
Please allow 60 minutes and plan on you, your spouse/partner, and your teen being present. This is non-refundable.
60 Minute Session
This is where the magic happens! I love working with invested children and parents who are ready to feel better! Sessions will be focused on what is most important in the present moment and identified treatment goals, while also engaging in a variety of counseling interventions including art therapy, DBT-informed art therapy, cognitive behavioral therapy, Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT), Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR), and a variety of mindfulness techniques. Individual sessions are available whether your child is enrolled in a group or not.
