What if I'm not creative? Do we have to make art?
You probably are creative. We all are. And of course not. I never force art making. Our sessions are a collaboration and I will meet you were you are at on any given day.
What are Sessions like?
Sessions are collaborative and based on your needs. Art is always available for use. If you have an idea of something you want to create, let me know and I’ll make sure I have supplies stocked for you! If you need some guidance in the art making process I’m happy to provide assistance. If you would rather talk, we can do that as well.
Frequency, how often should I come?
This depends on what type of support you or your family needs. We can determine this together with the understanding that as treatment progresses the frequency may need to shift to support your needs.
How Young of Children do you see?
I typically do not see children under 5-years-old unless it is a specific referral.
My teenager doesn’t want to come to therapy, what should I do?
Forcing a teenage into therapy is pretty futile. That being said, I’ve had a lot of success connecting with teens using art therapy and with my general approach. Trying a session can be a good way to see if we might be a good fit. Please note, I charge for initial sessions.
Is Your practice for Children/TEens only?
Nope. I work with adults as well. I love holding space for adults while they connect with their creativity and inner guidance.
Fees and Insurance Information
I currently take Aetna, BC/BS, PacificSource, Providence, United Healthcare, and Regence Insurance
Please note that when using insurance I will need to assign a diagnosis (if and when appropriate). This diagnosis can be part of one’s permanent medical record.
Individual and Family sessions $135 per 55 minute session.
Individual and Family sessions with children 5 to 7 years old, $120 per 45 minute session.
Sliding scale: I have openings for clients that cannot pay the full fee please call to discuss a fee that makes sense for you/your family.
Out-of-Network: I can submit out-of-network to your insurance company. Please call your insurance company and ask how much they reimburse for mental health services with Licensed Professional Counselor. Also ask how many sessions they will reimburse you for. This allows you to make an informed decision about the cost of the services.
Please cancel or reschedule 24-hours before scheduled session. Cancellations that fall within 24-hours of the appointment will be subject to paying half of the session fee.
Please communicate clinical matters in session or over the phone and not in email or text. Feel free to communicate about scheduling via email, phone or text.
