Location and Contact
I am offering sessions via walking outdoors, on video, and in person in my office in Maple Leaf. While in-person sessions provides the privacy and contemplative atmosphere that best facilitates the therapy process, concerns about COVID as well as practical considerations such as transportation and childcare can be a barrier to meeting in person. As I get to know your situation and therapeutic needs, we can come up with a treatment plan together that includes in what setting we will meet.
I currently only have mid-day openings.
Nuts and Bolts
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.
Rates and Insurance
I am currently in-network with First Choice, Kaiser PPO, and Premera. If you have another insurance carrier, I can provide you a monthly statement as an out-of-network provider. Many insurance companies reimburse around 50% out of network (call yours and ask). My fee is $175 per 53-minute session.
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 (community or family, access to joy, access to nature, and internal resiliency). 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.
