For new clients, I offer a free 20-minute telephone consultation to answer your specific counseling or coaching questions. My office hours are Tuesdays through Fridays which include some evening hours. Typically my sessions are 55 minutes long. The initial appointment is 90 minutes. Sometimes I find it necessary to schedule a session for families, couples, or specific trauma work for 90 minutes. All home visits are scheduled for 2 hours and require an initial office visit.
Payment & Insurance
My fees or a portion of the fees are typically covered by insurance. I am a preferred provider for Premera , so I will bill for directly to this insurance program. I expect you to contact your insurance company to find out the number of sessions covered. This needs to be done in advance of our first scheduled appointment.
The portion not covered by insurance is your responsibility. Sometimes their quote of covered sessions is not a guarantee of payment. Keep in mind that the number of sessions needed to complete therapy may exceed the number covered by insurance. Also, when insurance is chosen as a means of payment, the client diagnosis and personal information can become part of the medical record.
