Are you Licensed? What are you Credentials?
I am a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist (LMFT) in the state of Washington (LF60721688). I have received a Bachelor of Science from California State University, Chico and a Master of Arts in Marriage and Family Therapy from Antioch University, Seattle. To obtain these credentials one must meet an exhaustive set of requirements set forth by state laws and statues including extensive training, supervision and training in the field.
Do you bill insurance?
Yes, I am contracted with Premera, LifeWise, and UnitedHealthcare insurances. I am also considered an out-of-network provider. This does not mean that you will be responsible for 100% of the cost of your appointments out-of-network, as a licensed professional, many companies with out-of-network benefits will reimburse for services after the deductible has been met. I have found the percentage of reimbursement can range anywhere between 50-90%. Please check with your insurance company regarding out of network benefits, deductibles, and number of sessions covered per year.
Listed are a few questions to ask your insurer: What are my out-of-network benefits? What percentage of my out-of-network visits are covered after I meet my deductible? What is my deductible and how much has been met this year? How many sessions am I provided per insurance year?
In most cases I am able to bill insurance companies directly electronically. If this is not the case, I will provide you with a complete detailed statement that can easily submitted to your insurance carrier for reimbursement. In all cases I am happy to assist you in getting reimbursement from your insurer.
What forms of payment do you accept? What do you charge? What If I need to cancel an appointment?
I accept Cash, Credit Cards, Checks, PayPal, and Health Savings Account.
I charge $140 per individual, couple, and family session.
24 hours' notice is required for appointment cancellations. Missed sessions (not canceled 24 hours prior) will be billed at the regular rate and are not covered by insurance.
