Insurances Accepted

A formal psychiatric diagnosis is required for treatment authorization and billing of insurance. We will begin an assessment during the initial session so that I can formulate this diagnosis. A diagnosis can evolve over time depending on presenting symptoms and how they affect your daily functioning.

Co-pays or deductibles are the responsibility of the client. These payments are due prior to the session starting. Contact your insurance ahead of time to receive authorization for mental health care (if required by your insurance) and to determine if you will be responsible for deductibles or co-pays.

I am a preferred, in-network provider for: 

  • Aetna

  • Beacon Health

  • CIGNA Behavioral Health

  • First Choice

  • Humana

  • Kaiser Permanente

  • Medicare

  • MHN (pending)

  • Optum/United Behavioral Health

  • Premera

  • Regence


Private Pay

If you are not covered by insurance or choose not to utilize your insurance, the private pay rate per session is $140.00. This payment is collected prior to each session. Payment methods accepted include cash, check, and debit/credit card. 


Cancellations and Fees for Late Cancellation 

 

If you need to cancel an appointment, I ask that you do so 48 hours prior to the scheduled appointment by calling the scheduling staff at 425-640-7009. This allows me to serve another client during that open time. If you cancel less than 48 hours in advance or do not show for your scheduled appointment, I will assess a $90.00 fee. Insurance will not cover this fee. I do understand that there are circumstances that are out of your control and a timely cancellation is not always possible. In these cases, we can discuss a possible waiver of the fee. If there is a pattern of late cancellations or missed appointments, the fee will not be waived. I conduct private practice therapy and this fee ensures my time set aside to provide therapy is compensated.
