Scheduling

Appointments are typically scheduled in a 50-55 minute “therapy hour” and although many clients choose to come weekly, we will work together to create a therapy schedule that works for you. This may include sessions of a shorter or longer duration and/or sessions that occur more or less frequently.

Rates

Standard rate is $50 per therapy hour and is pro-rated for shorter or longer sessions. A sliding scale is offered to individuals with financial concerns on a case-by-case basis. We encourage you to inquire about sliding scale availability when scheduling your first appointment.

*Please note that we DO accept the medicaid reimbursement rate for self-determination plans and can bill your FI directly on your behalf.

Insurance

Insurance is not accepted at this time, however depending on your insurance benefits our services may qualify for out-of-network reimbursement for therapy sessions. We can help you complete the appropriate paperwork for reimbursement, however do note that payment is due in full at the time of the session regardless of eventual insurance reimbursement.

Payment

Session fees may be paid via cash, check, credit card or FSA/HSA debit card. Checks should be made out to Spotted Rabbit Creative Arts Therapy. Please note there is a $15 fee for any returned checks. Payment is expected at the time of services.

Since the scheduling of an appointment involves the reservation of time specifically for you a minimum of 24 hours notice is required for re-scheduling or canceling an appointment. Except in the event of illness or emergency, the full fee will be charged for sessions missed without such notification.
