I cannot draw well. Do I have to be good in art in order to participate in art therapy?
NO! Anyone can participate in art therapy. You don't have to consider yourself an artist to participate and benefit.
Do you take insurance?
Yes, but please call or check with your insurance company to see if I'm in network.
Do you prescribe medication?
No, I am not licensed to prescribe medication; however, I can refer you to other practicioners that could help you if you are interested in medication.
How do I know if you'll be a good fit for my child?
I always suggested you meet me and have your child meet me for at least two sessions before deciding if it will be a good fit. I truly believe the best therapy takes place when the client feels comfortable in the therapeutic relationship. If it turns out that I'm not the best therapist for you or your child, I will be happy to recommend another. Unfortunately it may take a few therapists before you find the 'right' one for you or your family.
