Duration & Fees
50 minute session: $115
75 minute session, available upon request: $150
Payment is expected at the time of service, unless I am able to bill your insurance directly.
I am a preferred provider for some major insurance companies and accept PIP and L&I claims. (Note: I am a preferred provider for Regence Blue Shield and First Choice Network, though not for Aetna, or Premera Blue Cross ) When I am unable to bill your insurance company directly, I will supply a medical receipt, which you can submit to your insurance company for possible out-of-network reimbursement.
Please note that I no longer bill insurance for bodywork sessions. I do bill for counseling and therapy.
Outside of extreme circumstances, I require 24 hours notice for cancellation and prefer more time. Please note that I am not able to bill your insurance company for missed appointments and you will be charged for these appointments if proper notification is not given.
What to Expect
Sessions are tailored to your specific needs and therefore experiences vary.
In your first visit, we will take some time to discuss your concerns and perhaps aspects of your history. I will also answer any questions that you have about how I work. This is an important part of the therapeutic process in terms of building trust and allowing me to come to begin to know you.
In subsequent visits we will explore the issues that you bring with you as they manifest in the present moment. Aspects of the past and present are explored through the use of dialogue, Focusing technique, Complex Integration of Multiple Brain Systems.
If we are doing bodywork, I may assess you standing or in movement and/or scan the energetic field of your body. Craniosacral therapy can be done clothed and involves very light touch as I work with the fluid structure of your body. It is often experienced as deeply relaxing. If doing structural integration, I may ask you to undress to your underwear for assessment. Table time can involve your active participation in breathing and moving or can be quite passive. More active techniques like structural integration involve deep, stretching strokes to bring greater alignment, freedom and ease to your structure. Many people in pain often experience relief as a result of receiving myofascial work as imbalances, misalignments and rotations in the system unwind.
