Fees – Psychotherapy
My fee for individual therapy is $125 for a 50-minute session. The initial evaluation session is $165 for an 80-minute session. I will accept clients on a sliding scale when needed. I accept cash or check at the time of your appointment. I am able to accept credit cards through my online system—an option much preferred by clients. I do not take insurance. I do require 24-hour notice of cancellation of an appointment.
Forms and Intake Information
I use a paperless management system. Prior to your initial visit, I will email two forms (see below) for you to read and e-sign. I will review the highlights of these statements and respond to your questions about them in our first session.
Informed Consent & Disclosure Statement. This document describes my practice and policies with regard to my professional qualifications, approach to treatment, fees, scheduling, cancellations, and consent for treatment.
Notice of Privacy Practices Statement. This form explains my policies related to confidentiality as well as the limited but important exceptions to your privacy. Washington State law requires that I provide clients with contact information for the Department of Health should you have any complaints against the services I provide.
In the case of working with minors, I will send parents an Informed Consent and Disclosure Statement for Working with Minors.
Prior to your initial visit, I also will send you a form called Initial Intake Information, which asks you for important personal background information, including a statement of what you want to achieve in therapy. Your client information and my notes and documents are encrypted and legally protected.
You will also be able to enter important contact information, as well as enter your credit card information. Clients are automatically billed after every session. You will be emailed a paid invoice for each session.
And then the day came,
when the risk
to remain tight
in a bud
was more painful
