adult men, women, and teens.

SUPPORT

GROWTH

Counseling is your chance to talk to a Therapist about YOU, your life, your wants, needs, feelings, and relationships. This is your opportunity to be seen and heard….and to get the support you need to feel better. Counseling can treat many many things from small concerns to major ones. You do not have to have a ‘mental illness’ to seek therapy and counseling support.  You can be a well functioning professional individual who want to make changes or improve your self awareness.

WITH US THERE IS NO…SHAME.ONLY GROWTH & SUPPORT!

NEEDING CONNECTION…

Remember, there is no shame in seeking therapy and seeing a counselor. We are all human beings and we all need connection to survive.  Reaching out for help takes courage and strength. We are happy to help you navigate this process and get connected.

Some of our therapists, but NOT all, can accept and bill to…

  • Premera
  • FCHN First Choice Health Network

Please know billing your insurance does not mean that your insurance will pay for services in part or in full… that is strictly decided by your insurance plan.

How MUCH DOES COUNSELING COST?

Counseling is billed to the card on file of your choice, for you at a rate of $160 for intake and $150 per 50 minute session.

WHAT SERVICES DO YOU NOT PROVIDE?

PLEASE NOTE WE REFER OUT TO SPECIALISTS FOR ALL:

ACTIVE COURT CASES: including custody of children in active divorce cases or modifications, issues of immigration, issues with social security disability claims and benefits cases

WRITTEN LETTERS: We do NOT write letters of any kind. We also do not complete documentation for emotional support animals or certification, disability benefit approval, immigration, custody, FMLA, short term disability, etc

STATE MEDICAL INSURANCES:  Please call Greater Lakes MH in Lakewood as they accept your insurance.

Unfortunately, we cannot be helpful with any of the above concerns as they are beyond our scope of practice and mental health licensing in WA, other local professionals can assist you with these items. We would hate to disappoint anyone when we have to tell them ‘no’ if we have already begun care.

WHAT HAPPENS IF I MISS MY APPOINTMENT & WHY?

Therapy is hard work! Your hour is your hour, set aside for just you, to do this hard yet rewarding work… and WE WANT YOU TO BE HERE!

If for any reason you cannot be here, a 24 hr accountability notice is required to avoid being billed in full for your missed appointment. Sadly, if you cannot attend (like we want you to) and we do not know a few days ahead of schedule, we cannot help anyone waiting for an appointment either. So we can’t help you, and we can’t help them.

$150 is the full fee for one session. 24 clock hours notice is required to reschedule for ANY REASON…. yes ANY REASON. 24 hr accountability billing is automated so please be sure to stay 24 clock hours ahead when rearranging appointments. Our voicemail system is time and date stamped to be helpful in tracking this process of rearranging appointments.
