All fees are self-pay via credit card, cash, or HSA card. Insurance is not accepted, but I can provide a superbill for you to give your insurance for reimbursement.

What are the advantages of self-Pay?

To have therapy services covered under insurance, you must have a mental health diagnosis. A mental health diagnosis can be limiting and place the focus on something being "wrong" with the individual. It can discount the role of life circumstances, poverty, systemic oppression, and more that create stress in a person's life. Furthermore, a person may not be seeking treatment for a mental health disorder - they may be hoping for more balance, life purpose, or other positive traits.

Some individuals also prefer to not prefer to have their permanent health record void of their mental health diagnosis, and prevent insurance companies from having legal access to their diagnosis, treatment plan and case notes containing a great deal of personal information.

As a private paying client, some additional advantages include

  • No contact needed with a third-party payor (i.e. insurance company)

  • Ability to choose your counselor based on the needs and values you desire

  • Ability to determine length of treatment and care

Do you offer a sliding Scale?

I am committed to running an art therapy practice that contributes to a socially just society. I devote 50% of my practice to sliding scale for people who come from marginalized  groups. Sliding scale rates range from $50-95, based on what you can pay. My sliding scale spots are currently full, but you may request to be put on the waitlist. If you need a steeper sliding scale, please visit Open Path

If you can afford the full fee, please do so. This allows me to offer sliding scale spots to those in need. I am currently creating an art therapy fund to enable more people to have access to art therapy.

Does Going to Therapy mean something is wrong with me?

We all need assistance at different points in our lives. Art therapy can assist you wherever you're at in your journey. I do not believe you need a "mental health issue" or "diagnosis" to justify therapy. Therapy is an investment in you and your desire to seek assistance is a positive sign. Whether you're navigating a crisis (death, relationship change, medical diagnosis, etc.), coping with life stress (financial pressure, relationship strain, academic pressure, etc.), experiencing debilitating symptoms (depression, anxiety, etc.), exploring new identities (religious/spiritual change, gender identity, etc.), or a life with more meaning, art therapy can help.
