Payment and Insurance

I’m an out-of-network provider and am glad to provide receipts of our time together for insurance reimbursements. If you’d like to utilize insurance, please confirm your coverage prior to our first meeting together.

In order to determine eligibility, your provider will need to know I’m a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist in Washington State. For most insurance companies, therapy services qualify for out-of-network reimbursement. Please note that I do not bill insurance companies but am glad to assist you in that submission process. Consultation appointments and group meetings do not qualify for insurance coverage.

Sessions are 55 minutes in duration. The initial appointment is $150. Individual therapy and consultation sessions are $130 per session. Group meetings for parents are $75 per group. Groups specific to twenty-somethings are discounted to $25 per group meeting. I offer this discounted rate because these are often lean years of financial struggle.

Payments are to be made in cash or check at the time of each appointment. Credit cards may be accepted via PayPal using my email address to access my account.


Directions and Parking

My office is located in the heart of downtown Kirkland, above Milagro’s Cantina, across the street from Anthony’s Homeport, and doors away from Ben and Jerry’s. Yum! Enter the office suite through glass doors leading to the lobby at the top of the stairs on the 2nd floor. Please wait for me there and I’ll greet you shortly.

Free parking is provided in the lot designated for restaurants Milagro’s Cantina and Hectors. Street parking is also available.


our first meeting together

As we begin our relationship, it’s helpful for me to have information about you and your goals for therapy and/or consultation. Also, state law requires a contract and disclosure form are completed prior to working together.

Please download and complete the appropriate forms provided below. If you cannot download these forms before our first appointment, please let me know and I’ll have them for you to complete on the day of your first appointment. Please arrive 15 minutes early to complete this information.
