$110 per 50 minute session, and $150 for the initial intake session.
Payment: Payment is due in full at the time of the appointment. I accept cash, checks, and all major credit cards.
Insurance: Mental health services may be covered in full or part by your health insurance or employee benefit plan - I am in-network with Regence Blue Cross Blue Shield, Aetna and several EAP plans. I can also bill other insurance providers and in most cases they still cover all or part of the cost of therapy. I encourage you to call your insurance prior to beginning therapy to find out what your benefits are, including any limitations, and to bring your insurance card with you to our first session. Please note that any claim filed with your insurance company will require me to include a mental health diagnosis. I encourage you to discuss this and any other questions or concerns you have with me about your privacy prior to our first scheduled appointment during the complimentary consultation.
Cancellation Policy: Please notify me at least 24 hours in advance if you are unable to attend your scheduled appointment. If you fail to cancel a scheduled appointment, I cannot use this time for another client, and you will be charged for the entire cost of your missed session. Consideration will be given for illness and emergencies.
