Special needs programs
How often do I have appointments?
As each person and family is unique in their needs, programs are personalized to reflect this. In a typical 12-15 session foundational program, we will meet every 1- 2 weeks for the first few sessions. Programs typically run for 1 year with frequency of appointments decreasing as new patterns become habit. Additional sessions and the total length of personalized therapy depends on your needs, ability, and motivation.
With younger children, in-person visits are typically less frequent, as parent coaching and a play-based approach are the main focus. We see much success when younger children work alongside an older sibling or parent who is going through the full program.
Do you have online appointments?
Yes! We do offer regular sessions and parent consultations for young ones via Zoom.
Do you accept insurance?
Clover Valley Wellness is a fee-for-service practice. We provide you with a super bill and supportive documents to submit to your medical insurance company for reimbursement.
We do accept payment through HSA health savings accounts.
How much does therapy cost?
We offer individual sessions or packages depending on your needs. Please contact our office for our fee schedule.
