I provide therapy for individuals 18 and older of all gender identities. The consultation and initial session provide a time for us to get to know each other. We'll talk through your hopes for counseling and decide if you want to move forward with weekly sessions.

Rates and insurance info

Therapy sessions are 55-60 minutes. My fee is $170 for intake sessions and $145 for following sessions. Payment is expected at the time of service. Due to the virtual nature of these sessions, I only accept electronic payment by card. I accept all major credit cards as well as HSA cards. A credit card is required to remain on file and will be charged after each session through your online portal in Simple Practice via Stripe.


***Please note I will be private pay only as of 6/22/23. This means I will no longer be taking insurance.***

Until June 22, 2023 I am in network with Premera. My billing company, Prestige Medical Billing, processes these claims. Co-pays are due at the time of service. For insurance clients, your payments are taken by this billing company through Inbox Health via Stripe.

Otherwise, I am an out of network provider. If your insurance offers out of network benefits for therapy, I can provide you with a superbill. This is similar to a receipt for services. You can then submit this to your insurance company and they may provide you with partial reimbursement for the session. Please note I do not accept any Apple Health plans, including Community Health Plan of WA, United Healthcare Community Plan, Molina, Amerigroup, Coordinated Care Corporation.

If you are hoping to use insurance or superbills, I recommend calling the number on the back of your card to ask about your benefits. That way you will know what your co-pay is and if you have a deductible to meet as well as if you have out of network coverage.

Please note that a diagnosis is necessary to bill insurance. We can discuss this together.
