AvAILABILITY & Fees:

Phone calls: I do not charge for phone calls under 15 minutes. However, phone calls that exceed 15 minutes with clients or collateral contacts (ie. school counselors, doctors, CASA or social workers, etc) will be charged at a prorated individual fee of 100 per hour. Please note that many insurance companies will not reimburse for phone contact.
Openings: As of April 1st, 2017, I will not be taking new clients due to a planed personal leave from June-September. Please check back in August for more information regarding my availability.
Insurance: I bill most major insurance companies and I am currently an "in-network" provider for:
- MultiPlan, MultiPlan: Limited Benefits Plan, PHCS, and PHCS: Healthy Directions Network
- Kaiser Perminente/ Formerly Group Health Cooporative: Options and Alliant Plus plans
- Community Health Plan of Washington
- Regence PPO
- First Choice Health PPO
Please check with your insurance company to determine your out-of-network benefits as it is likely your insurance company will cover a portion of the cost. When speaking with your insurance provider, you may consider asking the following:
- Do I need prior approval/referral from my primary care physician?
- How many outpatient mental health sessions are covered per year?
- Is couple or family therapy covered? If so, is a mental health diagnosis for one member required for reimbursement.
- What is my deductible and has it been met?
- What is my reimbursement rate for an out-of-network provider?
Reduced Fee Time Slots: 4 reduced fee time slots vary throughout the week and are subject to availability. Please contact me to discuss the availability of these slots.
Reduced Fee for Counseling Program Students: I offer a reduced fee of $35 per session to counseling program students when insurance coverage is not available. Please be prepared to bring proof of enrollment. Upon the student's graduation or exit from the program a re-negotiation of fees will take place.
Cancellations: Please provide 24 hour notice via phone if you need to cancel a scheduled appointment to avoid being charged for the session (exceptions for sudden illness or emergencies will be discussed on a case-by-case base).
No show/No Call fee: Full session fee
Late cancel (within 23-0 hrs of session): Half sessions fee unless otherwise determined
