Rates & Insurance


Rates
Individuals, couples, and families are $125 for one hour or $185 for a one-and-a-half hour session. 


Insurance
Currently I am paneled with Premera, First Choice, and Regence, as well as several Employee Assistance Programs.  

If you choose to use insurance, it is important to understand your coverage. You should check with your provider about the following questions: What is your deductible? How many outpatient mental health sessions are covered per year? What is the reimbursement rate for out-of-network providers? How do you submit claims? I'll provide a statement for each session payment that you can submit to your provider for reimbursement.


There are several reasons that you may choose not to use insurance. All insurance companies require a diagnosis for treatment, and many cover a limited set of disorders. Treatment has to be medically necessary and you will have to be diagnosed with a mental disorder that your provider covers. The diagnosis and treatment become part of your medical record. Some employers use medical records when making employment decisions. Once you have been given a diagnosis, it may also affect your access to insurance and your cost if you change plans.

In addition, many insurance companies do not cover couples or family therapy.

I'm not able to guarantee reimbursement from insurance companies; you are still responsible for full payment at each session.

Reduced Fee
Sliding scale may be available on a limited basis depending on circumstances.

Payment
Cash, check and all major credit cards accepted for payment.

Cancellation Policy
If you do not show up for your scheduled therapy appointment, and you have not notified me at least 24 hours in advance, you will be required to pay the full cost of the session.
