Preparing for Your Appointment

I have appointment times available on Tuesdays and Thursdays in north Seattle and in Edmonds on Wednesdays. My fee for individual, couples or family sessions are $125 for the clinical hour and $175 for longer 85 minute sessions. Saturday Family Recovery workshops are $180 for one person and $260 for two people attending together. I do not bill insurance directly, however I can provide detailed invoices to people seeking out of network reimbursement from their insurance plan. There are benefits as well as drawbacks to using insurance for counseling and we can discuss these together if you are interested. I can offer a reduced session fee (sliding scale), if my fees are not accessible to you please discuss this possibility with me.

In order to preserve the length of your first session, I encourage you to print and review the initial session forms provided below. Please bring these papers with you to your first session along with payment for your first session by cash, check or credit card. If you have any questions you can email me for the fastest response.

I look forward to meeting you!
