This links to my Policies and Agreement Form.  

It gives details about my education/training, experience, and the types of counseling I use. It also details appointment scheduling, my rates, explains confidentiality (with a link to information especially for teens and their parents), my cancellation policy, and your rights. Please feel free to ask me about anything on it, or any other questions you might have.



As stated elsewhere, I accept some insurances.  Insurances Accepted. For those paying out of pocket, or Out Of Network,  my rates are $100.00 per 50 minute hour. If I accept your insurance, but you have a high deductible, I will charge you my contracted rate with your insurance.  I can arrange for a bit of a reduced fee if you need to pay out of pocket, or if I do not accept your insurance. The Resources page can get you started if you are uninsured or if financial issues are a barrier. All major credit cards, checks and cash are accepted. Payment is due at time of appointment, unless other arrangements have already been made. Please feel free to contact me for more information at (360) 771-0192.


By law, counseling IS completely confidential.  This applies to almost every aspect of counseling, including even if you are a client or not. The only day to day exceptions to that are giving insurance companies information they need to reimburse me for services.  I am bound by state laws to keep virtually all other aspects of our work confidential except  1) if you give me written permission to talk with someone (this is when you would sign something called a Release of Information) or 2) under very specific circumstances which are rare, but I describe in my Policies and Agreement form.  


I accept various insurances: Insurances Accepted. Please see my article About Insurance for new changes in the law as well as general information about Mental Health/Behavioral Health benefits.  If you wish to avoid using your insurance and pay out of pocket for services, that can be arranged as well.


I've put together a small list of Resources that might interest you or be helpful.  Please feel free to ask me any questions, all calls are free and confidential.  Here's my Contact Information
