  • What is art therapy and who does it help?
    Art therapy is a form of psychotherapy that uses the creative process of art-making to help people express and understand their thoughts, feelings, and behaviors. You don't have to be an ‘artist’ to benefit from art therapy, you only have to be willing to engage in the process. We focus on the experience of creating, observing, and reflecting. Art therapy is useful for people in all stages of life. Art-making has also been proven to have cognitive benefits, meaning it’s good for your brain! Making art helps with stress relief, self-expression, problem solving, and promoting insight. Learn more about Virtual Art Therapy here.

  • What are your rates? Do you take insurance? What forms of payment are accepted?
    I'm an out-of-network provider and am in network with Cigna insurance. The self-pay rate for individual sessions and family sessions is $200. If you have out-of-network benefits, I can provide you with an invoice which you can submit to your insurance company directly for partial reimbursement. I accept all major debit and credit cards, health savings account (HSA) or flexible spending account (FSA). For more information schedule a consultation or send an email.
  • How long is a session and how many sessions do I need?
    Each session is 50 minutes long. We start with weekly sessions for the first month and determine your needs moving forward. The typical length of therapy with me varies from 3 months to a year. While everyone’s path is different, by the end of the first month, my clients have experienced a significant decrease in symptoms of anxiety and depression, goals are clearly established, and we have already started taking action towards progress. The journey from there varies for everyone, depending on goals and circumstances. We’ll know that you’re ready to move on from our work together when you’ve been using the tools we've cultivated and have seen results related to your goals.
  • I want to do a parent/family support session. How does this work?
    We’ll discuss your goals for involving your parent or loved one in your journey. From there, we can explore options for approaching them with the idea, and ultimately having them join the therapy process. With your permission, I can reach out to your family member to invite them to participate. Keep in mind, not everyone is ready for therapy, some parents/loved ones may decline the invitation, and we respect their decision.
  • Do you provide emergency services?
    No, I do not provide crisis or emergency services. If you're experiencing an emergency, please call 911 or your local crisis hotline. If you or a loved one is feeling suicidal, please call the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline at 1-800-273-TALK or text HOME to 741741. Both services offer free, 24/7 crisis support in the US.
