Getting Started

I work with clients who are 16 years old or older, and I help clients with a wide range of issues, including (but not at all limited to): every day life stressors, transitions, anxiety, relationship issues (including dealing with toxic relationships), symptoms related to past trauma, depressive symptoms, perfectionism, and improving work-life balance. 

Phone consultation: If you're interested in starting to work with me, contact me and let me know the best time (after 5pm) to schedule a phone consultation with you. I offer free 20-minute phone conversations, so you can get a sense of whether we might work well together. 

Location and timing: My practice is in Eastlake, and I currently see clients on Wednesday evenings only.


FEES

Therapy is an investment, and I recognize that. 

Insurance: I am an in-network provider with Regence BlueShield and First Choice Health. If you have another insurance provider that you would like to use, I will charge you as a private pay client and provide you with a receipt. You can use the receipt to complete an out of network insurance claim with your insurance provider, and it will reimburse you the allowable amount per your plan.

Private Pay/Out of Network: I collect the full fee at the time of service, and rates are as follows: Intake sessions are $175 for a 75-minute session; on-going visits are $130 for a 55-minute session. You may also prepay for 4 visits at $480 (which is a $10/week discount). One reason individuals may choose to seek therapy and not use insurance is because they may do so without receiving a mental health diagnosis (which insurance companies require); without a diagnosis, we may focus on work on what’s arising and creating stress or imbalance for you rather than solely trying to address specific symptoms.

Missed sessions: Like most therapists, I require at least 24 hours notice if you wish to cancel your session; if an appointment is missed or sufficient notice is not provided to cancel a session, I do charge for the session at the regular rate. 


FORMS

If you've decided you would like to start therapy with me, I ask that you fill out and review several forms before we start.
