Fees & Appointments
Appointments are available weekdays, with some evenings available.
Fees & Insurance:
Please contact me regarding fee rates. I am a preferred provider for Premera, Lifewise, and KPS; although I will submit paperwork for these companies, you remain responsible for the payment of your bill in the event that a claim is rejected for some reason. Insurance reimbursement typically takes from one to two months.
I will provide you with the necessary paperwork for filing your own insurance claims if you are with a different insurer. Payment is expected at each session unless you & I have made other arrangements.
Policy for Missed Sessions:
Once we both decide to begin working together, it is very important that we keep a consistency and a momentum to the process in order to give a real chance for change to set in. This will require a certain level of commitment on your part. Once an appointment time is established for you, a missed or canceled appointment will be charged to you at the regular session rate unless you are able to give me 24-hour notice. Bear in mind that I cannot charge your insurance for a missed session, so you would personally be responsible for the fee.
