Getting Started

My practice is a little full and it can take some time to get an appointment, so until then, here are some ways to continue your healing journey.

If you’d like to be on my waiting list, please use this link to tell me a little bit about yourself:

You’ll find forms, statements and even a private online journal at your client portal:

Insurance

I’m in network with Kaiser and Pacific Source. And some clients are able to get an authorization from Care Oregon to see me with a single case agreement that their case manager set up for them.

Most other insurance plans offer out of network coverage. When you join my waiting list, we will check your benefits and give you an estimate of your co-payment. Once we confirm your benefits, usually at the time the first EOB (Explanation of Benefits) arrives, we will know your co-insurance amount. We will bill your insurance and you need only cover the copay.

Some clients are concerned for their privacy and prefer to pay out of pocket. Though your sessions are completely confidential and HIPPA compliant, if you use health insurance, they have the right to do a records review in order to pay for the services you are receiving. And you may not want your personal information disclosed.

If you have a Health Savings Account, this could save you 15 – 25% of the cost based on tax savings.

You might also contact your CPA or tax adviser to find out if the cost of therapy might be tax deductible, especially if your issues are related to work, career, business or school.
