Frequent Asked Questions
What will our first session be like?
You will come to my office a few minutes early and fill out some paperwork. During our meeting, you will be able to share what has brought you to counseling and what you are hoping to see change for yourself. We will explore what has been going on in your life. Together, we will come up with a plan to help you meet your goals.
How does counseling work?
Generally we start with meeting for 55 minutes once per week. Each week we check in around what’s going on in your world, how you are feeling, and decide what you want to work on this week. During the session, we might spend time exploring your challenges, doing an experiential mindfulness exercise, or learning how to have a different relationship with your negative thoughts so they don’t take over.
How does payment work? Do you accept insurance?
I accept First Choice Health, Lifewise, and Premera insurance. If you are using your insurance, your fee is set by the insurance company. My full rate fee is $125 per 55 minute session. I encourage you to call your insurance before our first meeting so you know how your particular plan works. I accept cash, check, credit cards, and hsa/fsa cards.
