Insurance, Fees & Policies

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.

You are welcome to meet with me by phone or in person for a complimentary 20-minute consultation to discuss any questions you might have and to determine if we are a good fit.

I am in-network with Moda Health, Regence BlueCross BlueShield, and PacificSource 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

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?

I accept payment via cash, check, venmo, and credit card.

Things happen. If something does come up and you aren't able to make your session, I ask for 48-hours notice; otherwise you will be responsible for the fee for the missed session.

If you'd like to schedule an appointment or a 20-minute complimentary consultation, please contact me here.
