The first session includes an intake and assessment, which explores some background information and why one is seeking therapy/counseling services. Understanding the issues accurately is the only way to plan skillfully for the therapeutic path to healing.

I offer a 55 minute session for individuals billed to insurance for $160.00 and a 55 minute initial intake and assessment for $195.00. My out of pocket fee is $160.00 for the initial intake/assessment and $140.00 for on-going therapy sessions. I am contracted with various insurance companies and am currently accepting the following insurance:

  • Aetna
  • Amerigroup
  • Regence Blue Cross/Blue Shield
  • Community Health Plan of Washington
  • First Choice Health
  • Kaiser
  • Lifewise
  • Premera
  • OptumHealth
  • Tricare/ United Behavioral Health
  • Triwest/ Veterans Community Care Network

To inquire about your health insurance coverage you can call the number on your insurance card and ask the following questions:

  • Do I have Mental Health/ Behavioral Health benefits?
  • What is my deductible and has it been met to date?
  • How many sessions of out patient psychotherapy are covered?
  • Do I need to get a referral from my primary Care Physician?
  • What is my co-pay per session?

Kindness should come from the heart, not the mind.
