Are you accepting new clients?

If you do not see a time that works for you, feel free to leave me a voicemail or email with a few options of your soonest availability for a callback after 2:00pm. I return calls within 24 hours or the next business day unless otherwise indicated on the office message.


Do you bill insurance? What about the No Surprises Act?

I am an in network provider for:

  • Aetna
  • Blue Cross Blue Shield / Regence

See specific details about using your insurance in Practice Policies on the client portal.

Some clients choose to self-pay for individual and group counseling or consultation services. I support clients and families who need convenient, specialized and flexible services in trauma, dual-diagnosis, acute and other recovery care. I provide “super bills” for deductibles and out-of-network benefits.

I offer a sliding scale rate from $125 to $145 per session when clients are paying out of network and the same day cash.

I am a learning participant in new national legislation for healthcare consumers. The No Surprises Act (NSA) supports transparency and cost planning for the uninsured. It’s headline is designed to prevent transparency for in network facilities that offer out of network provider care without notice to the patient or cost bearer.

Psychotherapists have a long history of collaborative transparency regarding managing costs in care planning (e.g. frequency of services with agreed upon cost per session; a social justice mindset on access and fair market pricing). Parts of the No Surprises Act affirm that all clients may request in writing an estimate of annual expected costs. Please feel free to ask for more information about cost transparency and see Practice Policies for more information.


Will you work with my doctor on medications?

I will help you be your own best expert in collaborating with your providers. And, of course, I will appropriately provide consultation to your doctor or prescriber or any professional entity with whom you feel it would be appropriate for me to advocate and coordinate your care.

I have nearly five years experience in coordinated care systems – both for urgent and long term care purposes. I am committed to helping clients build and maintain quality relationships with their appropriate providers and supports.

I have counseled hundreds of clients during ongoing medication therapy and trial/adjustments. I provide the experienced counseling support that works alongside medication symptom management.

If you feel that medication supports for depression, anxiety, mood, trauma, sleep, smoking cessation or other concerns might be a good fit for you, I can help you clarify your experience, expectations, as well as manage acceptance on the results of medication therapies.
