Counseling appointments are generally 50 minutes in length. My fee per session is $120 for individuals and $145 for couples.
After the initial intake appointment, phone consultations lasting longer than five (5) minutes in length will be billed, pro rated, at the same rate as office visits. Note that if we are meeting under your Employee Assistance Program (EAP), my fee is paid by the EAP for the approved number of visits.
I am a preferred provider for:
Kaiser Permanente Access PPO, Options PPO, Omni PPO
United Behavioral Health
United Behavioral Health Washington Healthy Options
United Healthcare Community Plan
Value Options/Beacon Health Options
For other insurances, I will accept insurance payment but will generally be considered an out of network provider, meaning that the insurance will cover a portion of my rate and you will be responsible for the remainder. In some cases, the amount you would pay for out of network coverage is not much more than the copay for in network coverage. I encourage you to contact your insurance provider and inquire about the extent of your coverage for counseling services. I will generally verify your insurance coverage and, as a courtesy, file a claim with your insurance company. At the time of our appointment, you are responsible for paying any amount that your insurance does not cover. Please be aware that I may file your insurance claim electronically via the insurance company’s secure website.
Additionally, a credit card number will be kept on file and will automatically be charged for missed sessions and/or outstanding balances. Bills that remain unpaid for more than 30 days from their due date incur a one percent (1%) late fee per month that they are delinquent. Cash, check and credit card are accepted for payment. Credit card payments may incur an additional service fee.
Appointments are scheduled individually. If you need to miss a scheduled session, please provide 24 hours notice. If you do not provide 24 hours notice, you will be charged for the missed session.
