Fees  and  Forms  

 As far as we can discern, the sole purpose of human existence is to kindle a light in the darkness of mere being.    
Carl Jung  "Memories, Dreams, Reflections", 1962
Sessions

Each person who comes to counseling has a unique reason for being here and therapy goals may differ. Sessions can be tailored to best meet your individual needs and preferences. Rather than the typical 50 minute weekly session, some clients prefer a 90 minute session weekly. Others may prefer two 50 minute sessions a week if they are going through a difficult period. Feel free to request different scheduling options.   

Our first meeting is an extended session so that a comprehensive evaluation can include your history, significant life experiences, and a clear picture of your current issues.  This information will help us devise a plan to address your therapeutic needs and determine what schedule will best support your goals.

Forms

Prior to your first visit it is helpful if you print and fill out the Client Information form. Also please print, read, and sign the Consent to Treatment and Disclosure forms as this will save time in our first meeting to focus directly on your concerns. The disclosure form provides more detail about my practice, confidentiality and mandated reporting.  I am happy to address any questions you may have about the information in these forms.   


Insurance
I am an In-Network Provider for Premera Insurance. I will bill Premera Insurance directly. If you are covered by Premera, you will only need to pay your co-insurance or the allowable amount if you have not yet met your deductible for the year.   
I am an Out of Network Provider for all other insurance companies.  Please check with your Benefits Representative for your specific coverage.  


Fee Schedule
   $ 120    for a 53 minute individual or family (couples) session
   $ 180    for a 90 minute individual or family (couples) session  (INTAKE)

For all non-Premera clients, payment is due at the time of appointment via cash, check, debit or credit cards. I try to be sensitive to the financial constraints of clients and have a portion of my practice available for sliding scale fees.  If you qualify, we can discuss this option when we first meet.  

Prices for all services are subject to change without notice, and current clients will be given a 30 day notification of any pending fee increases prior to them taking effect. 


Cancellations
Due to the time commitment made to you, I ask that you kindly provide 24 hours notice if you need to cancel your appointment in order to avoid charges for missed sessions.  Voice mail and email are both available 24 hours a day in the event that an appointment needs to be rescheduled.
