Rates and insurance info

Therapy sessions are 55 minute hours. My regular fee is $130. 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. 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.

I do offer a number of reduced fee spots in my caseload. Please let me know if this is something you need.


I am an in network provider for Premera. I bill insurance through a secure clearinghouse in Simple Practice. Co-pays are due at the time of service.

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.

If you are hoping to use insurance, 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.

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