Appointments & Fees

Scheduling a First Session

Finding the right professional is very important for your success in therapy. Please contact me in order to set up an initial phone consultation, free of charge. We will discuss your needs as well as what services I can provide. If, during this initial consultation it appears that my services may not be the best fit for your needs, I can offer alternatives in the community. If we appear to be a good fit, we can schedule your first session.

Fees

The fee for the first appointment is $180. This includes time spent in scoring any evaluation measures and review of previous records. My fee for a 45-50 minute individual therapy session is $140. Reduced fees are available on a limited basis based upon income and financial need. If this is a concern, please discuss this with me. If I cannot accommodate your financial situation, I can provide you with other referrals in the greater Seattle area.

Cash or check are accepted forms of payment and due at the beginning of each session.

Insurance Reimbursement

I do not currently accept insurance.  Depending on the type of your insurance plan, many clients submit their claims independently and are able to obtain partial or full reimbursement for services. If you wish to use these out-of-network benefits, I can supply you with an invoice for my services that you may be able to submit to your insurer for reimbursement.

Cancellations and Missed Appointments

When you make an appointment with a psychologist, you are reserving that time for yourself.  I will make every effort to schedule a time that will be convenient for your schedule.  If you cancel an appointment with less than 24 hours notice, you will be responsible for paying for the missed appointment.
