To Schedule a Consultation or an Initial Session
*Unfortunately, I am not accepting new clients at this time. I will be able to take new clients at the beginning of June 2019.*
You can go to Psychology Today or GoodTherapy to find therapists in your area.
If you have decided to move forward with the next step, congratulations! It's always a big step!
There are several options for our first communications or meeting.
Please see below to decide which is best for you and your circumstances.
Free 15 Minute Consultation
If you have questions, would like to inquire further about my services, or need to further assess if we are a good fit, I offer a free 15 minute initial consultation by phone.
To schedule this Initial Phone Consultation you can:
call and leave a confidential voicemail at 425-238-2765
send a confidential email to firstname.lastname@example.org
or fill out the Contact Form below.
I will return your call or email within 24 hours to schedule our call. There is no charge for this service.
30 Minute Consultation
After speaking on the phone or after communicating via email, it may be that you would like to schedule a 30 minute in-office consultation to further discern if we are a good fit. We will schedule this at the time of our initial phone call or via email.
60 Minute Consultation/Session or 75 Minute Intake Session
Some prospective clients may want to go ahead and schedule a full 60 minute session to thoroughly discern if we are a good fit, or we may have decided that we are ready to begin the therapy after the initial phone consultation. If this is the case, then we can schedule a 60 minute initial session.
I typically will schedule a 75 minute intake session for family, couples, or children.
Insurance or Self-Pay
Before you decide to move forward with the therapy in earnest, it will be important for us to know if your sessions will be covered by your insurance provider. I will collect your insurance information when we schedule your session and send this on to my medical biller, Puget Sound Medical Billing. It is best if you contact your insurance company as well.
At this time, I am in-network with these insurance providers:
First Choice Health
Tricare Prime/Tricare Prime Remote
Tricare Young Adult (Prime, Select)
Tricare Reserve Select
Tricare Retired Reserve
Tricare for Life
Out-of network services require full payment at the time of our sessions. You may be able to put your therapy fees toward your deductible and/or be reimbursed by your insurance company. Please check with them to find out what your options are. I provide the paperwork from my company that you will need to submit for your claims. You will also need to submit paperwork from your insurance company as well.
Some insurance companies may pay out-of-network directly so you don't have to pay out-of-pocket, These are usually because of extenuating circumstances. We can work together on this, along with my medical billing company, to see if this might be a possibility. However, you should expect to pay out-of-pocket for the initial sessions.
Otherwise, you are welcome to pay for your therapy without going the insurance route. In which case, I accept cash, credit, or check.
Finances are a critical component in the therapy work. It is part of the therapeutic "container" and the therapeutic boundaries that are vital for the work we will do. Please feel free to check with me for any clarification or information that I might be able to assist you with in this process.
