Counseling

Schedule

I currently see clients by appointment only Monday-Thursday 9:30 AM~ 7:30 PM and Fridays 10 AM-2PM in my Bellevue

location ~ additional appointment times are occasionally available. 

Location

40 Lake Bellevue Drive Suite 220

Bellevue, WA 98005

My counseling practice is located in a serene setting on Lake Bellevue,

near NE 8th, 116th, the Group Health and Overlake Medical complexes,

convenient to downtown Bellevue, and the I405, I90, I520 freeways.

Fees

An initial 20 minute phone or in-office consultation is offered at no

charge, to give us both the chance to determine if our styles, goals and

skills are a match. Moving forward from there, the fee for a 60 minute

session is $120, $160 for a 80 minute session.

* (Please see note below regarding reduced fee opportunities).

Payment is expected at each session, unless prior alternative arrange-

ments have been made. 24 hours notice is expected to cancel an

appointment, except in cases of unavoidable emergencies. If 24 hour

notice is not provided, full payment for the time dedicated for your

session will be expected.

Insurance

I am a preferred "in-network" provider for the Lifewise Plan of WA and

Premera Blue Cross networks. Your health insurance company may

likely also reimburse a portion of my fee as an "out of network" provider.

I am happy to provide you an invoice to submit to your insurance

company; however,I cannot guarantee reimbursement & am not involved

in your claim process. I encourage you to check your coverage carefully,

and ask the following questions:

Do I have mental health benefits?

What is my deductible and has it been met?

How many sessions per calendar year does my plan cover?

How do you pay for an "out of network" provider?

Is there a limitation on how much you will pay per session?

Is primary care physician approval required?

Forms

In preparation for your first appointment, please view, download, print,

Private Yoga Instruction

Schedule, Location, Fees

Many yoga students, either new to a practice, maybe experiencing specific

issues or concerns due to injuries or chronic health conditions, or those

just wanting to deepen their knowledge and personal yoga practice, can

benefit greatly from individual yoga teaching sessions.These private 1:1

sessions provide personalized attention, more in-depth explanations,

guidance, modifications, and sequencing specifically designed to meet

your personal needs and goals.

Some find 1-3 sessions effective in addressing specific concerns, while

others use ongoing private yoga lessons as a powerful complement to

regular weekly group classes to quickly gain understanding, strength,

balance, flexibility, and skill development. Privates are held at my Lake

Bellevue office. 

The fee for a 80 minute session is $60 ~ a 5 session series is priced at

$250 ~a $50 discount. If you are looking for combined yoga/counseling,

the fee is the counseling rate of $110.

Groups, Workshops, & Retreats

Please check back here soon for upcoming Wellness-based ongoing and

single event workshops, groups, and retreats. Locations vary ~ either

various venues on the Eastside or at a private, serene Cle Elum area

mountain setting ~ depending on the event.

A note regarding fees ~

It is my policy to offer a limited number of counseling sessions and

classes per week at a reduced rate for those genuinely unable to afford

regular fees, due to your current circumstances or challenges. Please

contact me to discuss the details, conditions and availability of this

program.
