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:
Regence Blue Cross/Blue Shield
Community Health Plan of Washington

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.
