Making the decision to contact a therapist is a big step. I understand it can be difficult and I am here to offer compassionate help. I agree with Antoine de Saint-Exupery's observation, "A goal without a plan is just a wish". I will work collaboratively with you to develop and put into action a personalized plan to successfully reach your goals.
Here you will find important forms to download and print. If you do not have a printer, please let me know and I will have a packet prepared for you that you will need complete before the beginning of our session.
Payment is required in full at time of appointment. I accept all forms of payment and my fees are reasonable and competitive. The first session is a comprehensive 2 hour appointment and costs $280. Typical follow up visits fees range between $160 to $240. Please call to discuss what type of services are best for you and and we will work together to develop a plan of care that best meets your needs.
I am choosing not to be “in network” with any insurance companies except Kaiser Permanente (formally know as Group Health) at this time. If you have insurance that offers “out-of-network” benefits, you may be reimbursed for your visit directly by your insurance company. It is important to note that Medicare patients are not able to seek reimbursement from Medicare or a Medicare supplement.
It is possible that you may find your out-of-pocket expenses without insurance are not very different from what you already pay, particularly if you have a plan with high deductibles, copays or coinsurance. Some of my clients tell me they also appreciate that their private information is not disclosed to their insurance company for billing purposes.
