Insurance reimbursement: In order to be reimbursed for art therapy treatment you are required to have out of net work benefits on your policy. Or if your insurance company does not have an art therapist in their network they are required to pay for art therapy services. All insurance companies will reimburse for out of net work services and all insurance companies are required to pay an out of net work provider that you choose if one is not in their net work.
I prefer to work with clients who can pay out of pocket at the time of service. I will gladly bill your insurance company and proved a letter that you will need for reimbursement.
Professional Fees: I charge a $275.00 assessment fee that covers; 1-2 hrs of intake information, assessments, development of a treatment plan, and a letter to your MD if needed. After that most clients will pay $125.00 for a (60 min) session weekly. Depending on the need, many clients will have completed therapy with a 12 week course of supportive therapeutic direction including education with reading and homework assignments. You will also be trained in self awareness and how to utilize mental health skill building that will improve the overall quality of your life and those you interact with. The skill set you will use is for managing anger, anxiety, depression, PTSD, low self esteem and many other mental health issues.
Please note: I do not work with active addictions.
