Frequently asked questions

What is Art Therapy


Sometimes words alone cannot fully express feelings and experiences. Art therapy is based on the belief that the process of creating art, in itself, is healing. The product may also help clients gain self-awareness and resolve issues. Art therapy includes the use of images, painting, drawing, collage, and clay to help express and explore feelings. Anyone can use art and the creative process. You do not need to be ‘artistic’. The goal is not to judge or interpret the artwork. It simply adds another dimension to communicate and explore emotions. Some clients choose not to use art and are successful in resolving issues through verbal therapy only. Art is used when and if clients feel comfortable.




What is EMDR?


EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing) is a psychotherapy technique that helps people to heal from the trauma symptoms and emotional distress that are the result of distressing life experiences. Please click on link for more information: http://www.emdr.com/what-is-emdr/




Do you take insurance?


No, I am not currently on any insurance panels. However, if you have PPO health insurance, you may be eligible for reimbursement of a portion of the fees and I can supply a summary of services or "super bill" to provide to you insurance carrier.
