Treatment & Evaluations
The therapists at Thriving Minds Behavioral Health offer Cognitive Behavioral Treatment (CBT) for Selective Mutism to children ages 2-18. Research has repeatedly demonstrated that CBT is the most effective treatment method for Selective Mutism, resulting in increases in communication and decreases in anxiety symptoms.
Three types of treatment are available including: individual treatment, consultative treatment and intensive treatment. Intensive treatment can take place either in the school setting or through Dr. Kotrba’s weeklong treatment camp, Confident Kids Camp.
We are very proud of the progress we have been able to make with children who attend our Confident Kids Camp and love to hear stories such as the one below.
Thriving Minds Behavioral Health accepts Traditional and PPO Blue Cross Blue Shield. We make every effort to determine the coverage of patients; however, we also ask that patients explore their own coverage and are knowledgable about co-pays and deductibles prior to the first appointment.
TMBH is an "out-of-network" provider for all other insurance carriers. However, many other insurance plans cover part or all of the costs of psychological services out-of-network. In fact, most patients report 60-100% reimbursement from their insurance company. If you plan to file for reimbursement with your insurance company, receipts are given for personal submission so that insurance companies can reimburse patients directly.
Payment is expected at the time of service by cash, credit card, or check.
