It is essential for you to find the right fit for you — someone who aims to truly “get” you, who you feel comfortable with and supported by. In fact, research demonstrates that the therapeutic relationship is one of the most important indicators of successful therapy. I offer a free consultation for this reason, so that we can find out if we are a good fit to work together.
Fees for Counseling Services:
Intake sessions: $180
Individual 55-minute counseling sessions: $165
I am an in-network provider for the following insurance companies and networks:
Blue Cross Blue Shield (Regence, Anthem, Premera)
Many insurance plans offer out-of-network benefits, meaning that you could choose to work with a provider not in network with your insurance and receive partial reimbursement. I recommend that you check with your insurance if you do not see them included in the list above to see what benefits you may have. I will promptly provide superbills upon request, which you can then submit to your insurance for reimbursement directly to you. Please be aware that you are fully responsible for the initial and ongoing payment of all fees for services, and I cannot guarantee reimbursement from your insurance company.
I am also happy to work with clients who pay out of pocket (which can include using out-of-network benefits or not using them) if they are unable to find an available, right-fit therapist who is in network with their insurance company, such as Kaiser. You may also decide that you choose not to go through insurance whatsoever. Paying privately means that your treatment is solely between your therapist and you, and that your information, including a mental health diagnosis, which is required for treatment paid for by an insurance company, is not shared with an insurance company.
Method of Payment:
Payment is due at each session. I use a HIPAA-compliant payment system called Ivy Pay, which allows you to pay securely by card. You may also be able to use your HSA or FSA to pay for sessions.
All appointments must be canceled at least 24 hours before the appointment time. Appointments that are not canceled within this time frame will be subject to a late-cancellation fee of the full rate of the session.
