Payment and Fees

Creative Ways Therapy accepts Amerihealth DC Insurance, DC Health Services for Children with Special Needs, and DC Crime Victims’ Compensation Program. If applicable, we will bill these sources directly for your therapy sessions.

We do not accept any private insurances, and we are not able to submit claims directly to your private insurance provider. We advise you to contact your insurance provider to inquire about their coverage of services provided by an out-of-network provider. If your insurance provider finds you eligible for reimbursement or partial reimbursement for services rendered by Creative Ways Therapy, we will provide you with a monthly invoice with the insurance-required information. You will need to pay for each therapy session, and then await reimbursement from your insurance provider.

For self-paying clients, whether or not you will be submitting invoices to your private insurance provider, payment is due at each session unless other arrangements have been made. Please pay with cash or check made out to Creative Ways Therapy. We do not accept credit cards.

Our fees for services are as follows. Please feel free to discuss your situation with your therapist, and we will do our best to offer a sliding scale to meet your needs.

"In between my therapy sessions, I think about what we discussed and it helps me look at things with a new perspective. Some of my relationships felt "stuck" but now I’m starting to make some positive changes." - Adult Female Client
