*Please Note: Reason for private pay also known as an out-of-pocket fee, clients choose not to involve their insurance companies in their child’s mental health care as a diagnosis must be associated for insurance coverage. Once a mental health diagnosis is made, it becomes a part of the child(ren) permanent health record. Insurance coverage also limits the number of sessions and time of sessions based on the diagnosis.
*With private pay/out-of-pocket fee, we can assure our clients the highest quality degree of privacy, flexibility, and control of how often therapy is attended, not the insurance company. We also operate on a sliding fee scale based on your income level, as we believe every child should have access to therapeutic counseling and empowerment services.
Our team utilizes these types of psychotherapy (child) techniques:
Cognitive Behavior Therapy (CBT) helps a child improve anxiety, moods, and behaviors by understanding their thinking process.
Acceptance and Commitment (ACT) this helps a child understand and accept their inner emotions.
Play Therapy involves the use of blocks, toys, sand, paintings, drawings, and puppets to help a child identify with their feelings and make connections to verbalize.
Support Therapy which provides coping skills and allows children and young teens to differentiate with unhelpful and helpful behaviors improves self-esteem and reduces stress.
*Payment due in cash, checks, money orders, Cash App ($ANCounseling or 786-499-1698), and or credit card.
