scheduling & fees
I believe that therapy is most effective in a consistent relationship. This can be different for each person; however, I generally find that scheduling clients on a regular, weekly basis is most helpful, especially in the beginning of treatment.
The fee for counseling is $165.00 per 50-minute session and $220.00 per 80-minute session. Payments are due at the beginning of each session. I accept cash, checks, and personal credit cards through my online client portal.
In response to current health and safety conditions, my practice is operating exclusively via telehealth (also known as telemedicine). I use a secure and HIPAA compliant platform for virtual sessions. In accordance with Washington state SSB6061 requirement, I have completed required trainings to conduct sessions virtually. In alignment with state certification requirements, I can only provide services to clients who are physically located in the state of Washington.
While I do not take insurance directly, I will work with your health insurance provider as an out-of-network provider. Please contact your insurance provider directly prior to initiating services to clarify whether they will offer reimbursement for outpatient behavioral health services, for greater clarity, you may also provide them with:
• My NPI: 1679125728
• My License number: LH6119457
• Services anticipated to occur weekly: 90834 Individual Therapy
I will provide you with a receipt for all services for you to submit to your insurance provider for potential partial reimbursement (a superbill). You will be responsible for turning in the necessary receipts to your insurance provider for reimbursement.
good faith estimate
In compliance with the No Surprises Act that went into effect on January 1, 2022, all healthcare providers are required to notify clients of their rights and protections against “surprise billing.” This Act requires that we notify you of your federally protected rights to receive a notification when services are rendered by an out-of-network provider, if you are uninsured, or if you elect not to use your insurance.
