The treatment fee is $190 for our initial (intake) session. After the first meeting, ongoing psychotherapy sessions cost $170 for a 55-minute session.
Cash and checks are accepted forms of payment. The client's portion of the treatment cost (a "co-pay" if you're using insurance) is due at the time of our session.
Health Care Insurance
I am a preferred provider for Premera Blue Cross and LifeWise plans. If you have one of these insurance plans, you will be responsible for the co-pay at the time of the session, and I will bill your insurance directly for the remainder of the cost.
If you have insurance other than Premera or LifeWise, I would not be an in-network provider for you. I will ask that you pay the session fee and will provide you a special statement that you submit to your own insurance. Their reimbursement would go directly to you.
If you don't have health insurance or you choose not to use your insurance for therapy, you'd simply pay the full therapy rates, above.
If you miss our scheduled therapy appointment or you cancel it with less than 24 hours notice, you will be responsible for the full cost of the session. Of course, sometimes we all get sick, and infrequent cancellations due to illness will not be charged.
