Insurance, Fees & Policies

Session Length

Individual therapy sessions are 45-minutes long. At times, it may be beneficial to have partners, family members, or others present for sessions, which occurs only by choice of the client and agreement of the therapist. These collateral sessions are 60-minutes long.

The rate for 45-minute individual therapy sessions is $125.

 

For 60-minute collateral sessions with a partner, family member, etc, the rate is $150.

Reduced fee services based on financial need are available on a limited basis.

I am in-network with Moda, Regence, and PacificSource insurance plans as an outpatient mental health provider. Please contact your insurer by calling the number on the back of your card to find out:
 

  • If I am a covered provider under your insurance plan

  • If you have to meet a deductible before therapy sessions will be covered by insurance

  • If you need prior authorization from your physician before beginning therapy

  • The amount of your per session co-pay

Out-of-Network Reimbursement

I am considered an out-of-network provider on most other insurance plans. I am happy to complete documentation to be submitted to your insurance company for possible reimbursement based on your out-of-network benefits. To find out if your plan provides reimbursement, contact the number on the back of your insurance card. Recommended questions to ask include:
 

  • Do I have out-of-network behavioral health benefits?

  • What percentage of each session fee is reimbursed?

  • Are any mental health conditions not covered by my current plan?

  • Do I need prior authorization from my primary care physician?

  • Do I have to meet a deductible before being eligible for reimbursement?

Due to all sessions currently being offered online due to COVID-19, payments may be made via credit cards, venmo, and PayPal.

Cancellations

If something does come up and you aren't able to make your session, I ask for 48-hours notice. If you cancel with less than 48-hours notice or miss your session, you will be responsible for the full session fee.

If you'd like to schedule an appointment or a 20-minute complimentary consultation to see if we might be a good fit, please contact me here.
