Lauren Amigo, Founder and CEO

MA, ATR-BC, LCAT (NY), LMHC (FL)

I am a board-certified registered art therapist (ATR-BC) and licensed creative arts therapist (LCAT) in the state of New York, as well as a Licensed Mental Health Counselor (LMHC) in the state of Florida. I have been passionate about my career as an art therapist for over 10 years.

My therapeutic and humanistic approach focuses on encouraging agency, empowering individual goals, and facilitating healing. I believe in the transformative power of art and creativity as a means to explore emotions, resolve conflicts, and foster personal growth. Through a supportive and empathetic environment, I strive to help my clients unlock their potential, build resilience, and achieve a deeper understanding of themselves. The dedication to mental wellness and commitment to each individual's journey is at the heart of my practice.

Insurance and Reimbursement

We offer a variety of ways to pay for therapy, including major insurance providers.

Out-of-Pocket

If you are not currently covered by one of our accepted insurance plans, we offer paperwork to apply towards out-of-network benefits which you can submit to your insurance for reimbursement.

We also work with Mentayaa service that streamlines getting reimbursed for your therapy sessions through out-of-network benefits and helps clients often get a percentage back of their session fee. We have seen clients be reimbursed on average 25-95% of the session fee. When outreaching to our practice, there will be space to include your insurance information so we can see what your out-of-network benefits would look like!

Mentaya charges a 5% fee per claim, which includes handling any paperwork required, navigating denials, and calling insurance companies. It's risk-free: They guarantee claims are successfully submitted, or a full refund of their fees.
