Finding the right therapist is important. Whether it’s your first time to therapy or if you are already familiar with the process, let's chat! I offer a 15 minute phone consultation for any questions you might have. Together, we can determine if my services feel like a good fit for your needs. I can also help with referrals if we determine that your needs are best met by another clinician.
Unless otherwise indicated, each session is 45-50 minutes.
For clients who would like more time, 80-90 minute sessions are available.
Fees listed below include home and community-based sessions.
A certain percentage of my business is reserved for clients that use a sliding scale. Feel free to ask, if your ability to begin/remain in therapy is contingent on a reduced fee. I will accommodate that need with clients as those slots become available.
Fees for 45-50 minute sessions:
Individuals - 120
Marriage & Couples - 140
Fees for 80-90 minute sessions:
Individuals - 145
Marriage & Couples - 165
Anchored Vision Family Therapy Services is a private pay practice. We do not bill insurance companies directly and client payment is due at the time of each session. As a convenience and courtesy, your debit number can be stored in our HIPPA compliant encryption software and charged automatically after each session.
Many insurance companies reimburse for counseling sessions at partial or full rates for out-of-network providers. If you wish to contact your insurance company for reimbursement, we can provide you with a receipt containing the appropriate billing codes and any other information you need. We do not guarantee reimbursement from any given company.
There are many benefits to engaging with a private pay therapy setting. In private pay, counseling is not limited by the diagnosis, treatment plan, or the number of sessions that health insurance companies often dictate. These factors often work against a client's best interest by narrowing the scope of therapy and continuity of care that clients can receive. Often, important issues end up going unexplored, which may reduce the impact of therapy and increase the likelihood that problems will return when therapy is complete.
More importantly, some diagnoses carry a stigma and can be used to justify decisions about life insurance coverage or may impact security screenings for some forms of employment. Most providers do not cover couples/relational or family therapy.
When therapists treat clients privately, they retain discretion over whether or not to provide an official diagnosis. The best way to ensure the highest level of privacy, flexibility and control of your mental health records under Washington State Law is to pay for therapy out-of-pocket.
