What are sessions like?
After scheduling an initial appointment, you'll receive info on setting up your Client Portal where you can review some starting forms and write a little about what you're looking for help with.
During the first few meetings we'll talk about what you've been struggling with, create a plan of action together, and you'll receive some feedback on next steps. I understand it can be tough sharing personal information, so I do my best to be respectful of any boundaries you may have around the information you choose or choose not to share. Once we know how you’d ideally like to be living your life, ongoing sessions are spent with us working together to identify and practice new ways of responding to stressors that move you closer to your goals.
Do you accept insurance?
I am in-network with the following insurance providers:
Premera Blue Cross
Regence Blue Shield
First Choice Health
If you have a different insurance provider, check your coverage to see if your plan offers out-of-network benefits. This means that your plan may reimburse some of the cost of services even if I'm not contracted in-network with them. Please review your plan's coverage for behavioral health services prior to our first meeting.
What does it cost?
If you are using your insurance coverage, you will be responsible for your plan's copay for behavioral health services if there is one. If your plan has a deductible, you will be responsible for the full session fee until your deductible is met. Please review your plan's benefits prior to our first meeting to ensure coverage.
Standard appointments are 50 minutes at $140 for private pay or out-of-network billing.
What is Telehealth?
Through audio and video over the internet, you can meet with your therapist from your desktop, laptop, tablet, or mobile device.
Telehealth allows us to connect anywhere in Washington State with secure and convenient appointments that save you time and hassle. All you need is a private space and a secure internet connection.
Is Telehealth appropriate for everyone?
No. You and your therapist will determine whether meeting virtually is a good fit for you or whether other services may be more beneficial.
How do you handle privacy and security online?
Your privacy and confidentiality is taken very seriously. Please read more here on the Security and Privacy Program implemented by SimplePractice, the platform used to manage the Client Portal and our online Telehealth appointments.
Can I pay my bill online?
Yes. Integrated credit card processing is included in your Client Portal where your card is securely kept on file for easy payments.
