Overview of the Therapy Process

  1. Assess
    Every child and every family are unique. There is no one-size-fits-all counseling approach that works. I start with an assessment of the family’s strengths and challenges, and a screening of the children’s social-emotional skills and symptoms.
  2. Plan
    According to each specific family’s needs, counseling sessions could be with all family members together or with the parents alone to focus on parenting. After the first (intake) session, we will discuss and agree on the goals of counseling and the number of sessions desired.
  1. Collaborate
    I help clients express and overcome difficult emotions/experiences through a combination of art therapy, play therapy and mindfulness techniques. This ensures that family members of all ages can engage in the process in both verbal and non-verbal manners.
  2. Re-assess
    We periodically re-assess the improvement, discuss what techniques have helped the most, and plan whether any changes in the treatment are necessary, whether goals have been successfully met, and whether referral to additional services is needed.

Insurance Reimbursement

I do not receive payment directly from insurance companies.  However, your insurance company may reimburse you directly for the cost of psychotherapy with an out-of-network provider. I will provide you with the necessary receipts.

I encourage you to call your insurance company before the first appointment, to find out what your benefits are for individual and family sessions with an out-of-network provider, if there is a deductible, and how many sessions per year are covered.

For the purpose of insurance reimbursement, I am considered an “out of network provider.”  Your insurance can look me up with my National Provider Identification (NPI): 1427567965.
