Private Therapy at Rainbow Tree:
The Rainbow Tree Advantage
Rainbow Tree strongly values partnership with the family and supporting children in natural environments including the natural playground and the home environment. We work very closely with caregivers and at times will include you in the session when appropriate. We value your opinion and will ask you to be heavily involved throughout the process of intervention. We recognize that family dynamics can impact child function and thus may look at the entire family systems and use an approach that encourages support at the family level too. Rainbow Tree is an intimate setting with access to nature and animals. We value natural landscapes for growth and development.
Our package prices reflect all that goes into a meaningful and supportive therapy experience from the planning each session to meet individual needs to communicating progress through formal documentation and lastly working directly with families to ensure carry over and progress at home.
*** Please review ALL of the information below!
- Private Therapy is generally offered in the Fall, Spring & Summer. We promote and encourage generalization of skills to our therapeutic nature camps offered in the Summer months. Sessions are NOT offered during the months of December and January.
- This is nature based therapy where most of the therapy will occur outside with some therapy indoors if needed for success of child. We value nature as a space where change is driven by the child in a natural space that invites curiosity, provides low stress and ignites motivation!
- We do provide intensive interventions along with the nature based focus including Safe & Sound Listening Protocol (for anxiety or history of trauma or social engagement challenges), Kawar Protocol (for balance, vestibular function, ocular motor function), Wilbarger Deep Pressure Protocol (for sensory challenges, particularly tactile) and we use the vibration plate to support balance and core strengthening.
- Our focus is to work heavily with you as the caregiver to ensure that we are supporting in your home environment. You are a big part of the success of therapy. Your carry-over and participation in the therapy process is critical.
- We package our sessions for 10 sessions at a time and then re-visit need and goals. See packages below. Packages allow for added benefit of coaching call for carry over at home where the change matters the most!
- Private therapy is scheduled during the weekday. We apologize but no sessions past 4:00 p.m. Sessions must end at or before 4:00 pm.

We would be happy to direct you where to get quality therapy but this private therapy setting would not be appropriate for children who have: 1) Complex medical needs 2) Not yet or unable to walk on an uneven surface. 3) Significant developmental delay where safety of running away could be a concern. 4) May be better supported in a facility where the environment is more controlled. 5) Significant and overwhelming fear of being outdoors.
Home Program with Parent Coaching
A home program without private sessions is an option for situations where intensive private therapy is not warranted because of level of concern or if it is not feasible because of family constraints. A home program is only provided after the evaluation process is completed. Please inquire for fee of this service.

"We sought out private therapy for our son at Rainbow Tree after years of sleep issues and challenges with emotional regulation that no longer seemed developmentally appropriate. Prior to our time at Rainbow Tree, it took our son an hour or more to fall asleep every night. He would have frequent meltdowns and seemed uncomfortable and anxious in his own body. Lisa is incredible. Our son immediately felt safe and seen at Rainbow Tree. The tools and resources Lisa has provided us are invaluable. We feel much more equipped to support our son through any challenges. After just a few weeks of the Safe and Sound Protocol, our son is beginning to feel safe enough to voice and work through his big feelings for the first time! He looks forward to his sessions with Lisa and truly feels at home on the grounds at Rainbow Tree. The natural playground is any child’s paradise and showcases the team’s ingenuity and dedication. We are so grateful for all Rainbow Tree has done for our family."
- An evaluation must be scheduled prior to services starting. Per the medical license of Occupational Therapists, an evaluation is required to proceed with therapy. Please allow 90 minutes for evaluation. We would accept a recent evaluation completed by a Licensed Occupational Therapist within the past 6 months. The fee for evaluation is $200 for on site evaluation at Rainbow Tree Therapies,LLC. Payment will be collected at the time of the evaluation.
Contact Lisa Haverly at email@example.com to set up an evaluation time. The fee includes evaluation session, analysis and scoring of results, producing a written report, and sharing of evaluation findings.
- The evaluation information will be shared with the caregiver over the phone. The assessment findings and functional need will dictate whether therapy is recommended or not.
- In collaboration with the evaluating therapist, goals will be established and written to represent functional, meaningful and measurable goals. Goals will be reviewed after 10 sessions and progress note written and provided. Progress documentation will be shared electronically or in person.
- Additional sessions may be recommended to continue to meet goals or to work toward new goals.

1. Do you have supportive options OTHER than private therapy?
Yes, we have group format therapeutic nature camps. Please see our camp offerings for information or check the blog post for recent updates. We also have coaching calls for caregivers to be collaborative problem solvers for the home environment. Please note that an evaluation may be recommended and required to offer specific guidance.
2. How many sessions will be child required?
Sessions will be prescribed based on continued need and assessment results. You can plan for a minimum of 10 sessions to facilitate change. To optimize results, packages that include the most home involvement are most successful. Therapy may come to an end once the child has reached the established goals and/or the parents request a break from therapy and/or the child's needs would be better met with a different type of professional. At Rainbow Tree, we see breaks from therapy as a positive thing and to see if skills learned are generalized into daily routines at home.
3. What does therapy in the winter time look like or when there is severe weather?
Your child will be expected to dress for the weather. Therapy can happen outdoors even in the winter. Playing in the snow is wonderful heavy work. We do have a heated building space that can also be utilized in the event of dangerous cold conditions or severe weather conditions. The building space may be utilized for some skill development if needed. There are NO services provided during the month of December and January unless scheduled separately with your therapist. Summer time is reserved for camp offerings so private session options are limited and private therapy clients are encouraged to attend a group format camp!
4. What is your cancellation policy? If for some reason, you have to cancel a session the policy is as follows:
- If cancellation is provided more than 24 hours in advance, then we will work with you to re-schedule.
- If a therapist has to cancel for any reason, you will be rescheduled or reimbursed in full or credited the full session fee toward a future session.
- Cancellation by you on the same day as your therapy session results in forfeit of the entire session fee.
- If schools in the area are canceled due to weather conditions, session will be attempted to be made up but there is no refund due to weather conditions.
5. What are your payment options?
Sessions are paid for up front. Families have successfully used their Health Savings Account to pay for sessions. Upon request, I can provide you with what's called a superbill that you could submit to insurance for possible reimbursement. However, we cannot guarantee reimbursement. A superbill is provided after sessions have been completed and paid for.
