Frequently Asked Questions

 
 

All questions are okay.

Have Other Questions?

 

Do you accept insurance?

Not at this time. I can provide you with a statement that you submit to your insurance company for partial or total re-inbursement.

What is a sliding scale for POC and marginalized groups?

I offer a reduced rate for persons of color and others who have been excluded because of their appearance, sexuality, economic or educational status, and more. People who have experienced discrimination and systemic oppression are often in need of mental health care. The healthcare system itself is guilty of such discrimination. Sometimes POC and marginalized groups find it difficult to trust providers.

Can I Bring my Child or Baby to the session?

That depends. Will they be a distraction to you? Remember this is carved out time just for yourself, and you deserve it. If you are a new parent, it may be very difficult to have time away. You’re are always welcome to bring your baby to session if it makes you comfortable. If your child is older, consider a play date or caregiver to have fun with, there isn’t a waiting area that can accommodate a child.

Can we have an online session?

Absolutely. For some new parents, online may be the only way to get a therapy session in. Once your baby is older, we can transition to meeting in the office studio.

How about a Home visit?

Most of the time, I can do sessions in your own home. This depends on schedule and location.

Do I have to do art therapy?

Nope.

Do you have kids?

I have two boys, 8 and 5 years old.

Do you see children?

Not at this time. If it is appropriate to meet your child regarding the goals of your treatment, then we will arrange to do so. I also work with teenagers.

Are you an artist?

100%.

Do I need to be an artist to do art therapy?

Not at all. Everyone can do art therapy. It’s most exciting to try new things, materials, and explore. Novelty contributes to neurogenesis.
