Children who are not group ready or who are not group appropriate may be seen for individual creative arts therapy provided by a master’s level, board certified or registered art, dance, poetry or drama therapist. These services are provided based on a sliding scale fee of $55-$100 per 50 minute hour. Our therapists are also available for in-home therapy for medically needy children. Please call for those sliding scale fees.
