Location and Contact
My office is in the Maple Leaf neighborhood of North Seattle, and I offer both virtual and in-person appointments.
Nuts and Bolts
Rates and Insurance
I see people on a weekly basis. I do not provide bi-weekly or monthly therapy. Weekly contact allows us to establish and maintain a relationship of consistency and trust. This is essential to doing the deeper work.
I am currently only in-network with First Choice, which includes Kaiser PPO plans. I am able to submit out-of-network claims to Blue Cross plans as well. If you have another insurance carrier, I can provide you a monthly statement as an out-of-network provider. Many insurance companies reimburse 50-80% out of network (call yours and ask). My fee is $225 per 53-minute session. I reserve some lower-fee slots for people whose insurance does not offer reimbursement for therapy.
Length of Treatment
The length of therapy depends on many factors, including your goals and commitment to the process, the complexity of your current needs, and the supports in your life. I have provided short-term therapy (4-20 weeks) as well as longer, deeper work. I prefer depth. However, money, time, and life circumstances are very real factors, and much can be accomplished in a short time for those who are ready for it. Our initial assessment period will include identifying your goals and any limitations around length and cost of treatment.
