Appointments, Forms & Fees
My office is located on the west side of Queen Anne in North Seattle, just above Interbay. When you contact me, I can give you specific directions.
Length of Appointments, and Fees
The length of my appointments is one hour ($120) for individuals and 1.5 hours ($175) for couples.
My fee is payable at the beginning of each appointment. (Click here to make a payment online). I do have a few appointments each week on a sliding scale for clients who have limited income or are experiencing unexpected financial hardship. If you have concerns of this kind, let me know. I can't promise that I will be able to meet your needs, but I am happy to discuss your concerns with you.
Insurance covers individual therapy only. Please note that insurance companies do not cover couples therapy, even if their websites make it appear that they do. Please contact me directly for further discussion about this issue: I know it’s complicated and want to be sure all your questions are answered. For individual therapy, I am a preferred provider with Regence.
If You’re Thinking About Insurance
Whether or not you have insurance coverage for our work together, you may want to think twice about seeking insurance reimbursement. Many of my clients prefer to keep our relationship just between us for reasons of confidentiality (insurance companies will not pay the bill without receiving information about you, including a diagnosis of a “disorder”). In addition, many clients have told me that their own financial investment in their work was another way for them to feel empowered and motivated. It’s up to you, but you may want to reflect on this before seeking insurance reimbursement.
I meet with clients on Tuesdays - Saturdays. My latest appointment begins at 6:00pm on Tuesdays and Wednesdays. To schedule an appointment, you can use my online appointment request form, email me, use my Contact Form, or call me at 206-214-7650. I look forward to hearing from you!
A Note about Your Privacy
Your privacy is important to me. If you request an appointment online to make an appointment, please know that all data you enter is encrypted during transmission. I also maintain my email account and voicemail to the highest possible level of security. Your online appointment request will generate an email to me, and unless you advise me not to, I will respond to you by email. Information contained in these emails may be seen by a third party. Please note that your confirmation email may not arrive immediately.
To Cancel an Appointment
To avoid a cancellation fee equal to the appointment fee, please contact me 24 hours in advance of the appointment you wish to cancel. It’s best when cancelling to call me at 206-214-7650 rather than sending me an email.
