Specalizations

While I am able to work with a wide arise of mental health concerns, from anxiety to depression there are a couple of areas that I specialize in:

Attachment Therapy

For Adults

Often individuals come to see me because they feel like their lives are lacking in acceptance and understanding. They may see these qualities as simply absent from their internal lives, or within their relationships, or a mixture of these two. Often when these qualities are lacking we move in:

 

-Perfectionism

-Codependency

-Historical Trauma

-Inner Child Wounding

Somatic Experiencing 

Our central nervous system holds so much of our stories, as well as aids in our performance and ability to function in the world. Dysregulation of this system can often lead to intense anxiety, difficult emotions, lack of an ability to cope, and, broken zones where we seem to have very limited choices. As a result of this practice we learn:

 

-How to increase our capacity to be with difficult things

-Decrease anxiety or depression

-Recover the body’s inherent capacity to relax and recover from intense experiences

Integrate our experience with states of non-ordinary consciousness..

Trauma, specifically religious trauma

While I have a lot of experience working with trauma, and am able to address trauma that may be coming from a variety of areas, I specialize in working with trauma surrounding religion. This may be religious trauma that came from growing up a home environment where they didn’t believe the religious messages they were being taught, or shame that results from religion, or simply feeling like something is “off” or “stuck” as it relates to the core of their identity.

Burnout

From medical professionals to executives I've with a variety of professionals seeking to recover from or prevent their burnout. Qualities of burnout may manifest as:

 

-Perfectionism

-Anxiety

-Depression

-Somatic Concerns

Fees for Individual &Couples Counseling

50 Minute Individual Counseling  Session – $150

I am currently in-network with Pacificsource and offer out of network reimbursement when possible.

*Please note that I do have two sliding scale spots, and I do seek to work with people. Please make sure that if you are requesting a sliding scale spot, you include this information in your consultation request.

Payment

The fee is payable by cash, check, credit card or debit card (Visa, Mastercard, Discover, and American Express, including HSA cards) and is due at the beginning of each session.
I am not affiliated with any insurance panels. However, we are happy to provide you with a detailed invoice that you can easily submit to your insurance company.  If you have out-of-network benefits, you may get a percentage of your counseling fee reimbursed.  

 

 

Are You Eligible for Insurance Reimbursement?

To determine if you have out-of-network benefits, check your policy carefully.  Call to ask the following questions of your insurance company:
·Do I have mental health benefits?
·Do you pay for out-of-network providers? Registered interns (if applicable)?
·If so, how much does my plan cover for an out-of-network mental health provider? What percentage of the fee is covered per therapy session?
·Does my plan cover couples counseling?
·What is my deductible and has it been met?
·How many mental health sessions per calendar year does my insurance plan cover? Do you give me these upfronts or do you require me to incrementally ask for more until I reach the maximum amount per year?
·When does my insurance coverage for a year begin/end? When do my benefits renew?
·Is approval required from my primary care physician before I see a therapist?
·What is your turn-around time for sending me a reimbursement?
The way that this works is that you pay the full, advertised fee for counseling up-front. At the end of each month, we will give you a detailed invoice. You submit this invoice along with a reimbursement form directly to your insurance company.  They will process your paperwork according to whatever you discover from asking the above questions. The reimbursement check will be mailed directly to you. In our experience, out of network benefits tend to reimburse 50-80% of the session price.
