We accept debit cards, all major credit cards, and health savings accounts (HSA).
A superbill is a document that contains the information your insurance company needs in order to reimburse you directly. The information includes the name of your therapist, our office address, national provider ID number (NPI), business tax ID number, your diagnosis, dates of service, procedure codes, and the amount you paid.
Your card on file will be automatically charged at midnight on the day of your visit. At the end of each month, you will automatically receive a superbill in your secure client portal that contains all of the sessions attended and payments made that month.
You have the right to receive a “Good Faith Estimate” explaining how much your medical care will cost. Under the law, health care providers need to give patients who don’t have insurance or who are not using insurance an estimate of the bill for medical items and services.
For questions or more information about your right to a Good Faith Estimate, visit www.cms.gov/nosurprises.

Some insurance companies reimburse for couples therapy but some do not. Please contact your insurance company and ask what the out-of-network reimbursement would be for couples therapy.
We believe a good match with between you and your therapist includes financial considerations. We encourage you to review your budget and be honest with yourself about what you are able to invest in therapy if you attended weekly sessions. If we are not a good financial fit for you, we would be happy to provide referrals for therapists who are within your budget or are in-network with your insurance. Contact us with your specific needs and preferences for a therapist and we would be happy to help. You can also search for therapists by insurance and budget on the therapist directory Psychology Today.
Our therapists work Monday through Friday, from 9:00 am to 5:30 pm. Some have early morning appointments at 8:00 am and some have evening appointments at 5:45 pm. We are not available on the weekends. If you have a specific time in mind or schedule limitations, please contact us to see if we can accommodate your schedule. You can schedule a free 15-minute phone consultation for us to learn more about your needs and see if one of our therapists can meet during the times that work best for you.
We are conveniently located in the Ballard neighborhood at 5306 Ballard Ave NW, Suite 212, Seattle, WA 98107.
Both paid and free street parking are available near our office.
Yes, we offer online therapy.
It depends. Here in the United States, each state has different laws and regulations regarding whether a therapist outside of that state can provide online therapy to a client who is traveling to or living in that state. In other countries, the laws and regulations also vary regarding whether a licensed therapist in the U.S. can provide online therapy to a client traveling to or living in that country. If you are interested in working with one of our Washington State licensed therapists while you are traveling or if you live outside of Washington part-time or full-time, please let us know. We will do the research into whether online therapy across state lines or internationally will be allowed depending on your location.
We use an electronic health record system called Simple Practice which is also our online therapy platform. Once you are matched with a therapist, we will create a client portal for you in Simple Practice where you will access your online sessions. There is also a Simple Practice app that you can download onto your phone or tablet to access your sessions. You will receive a reminder email for your appointments that also contains the link to your session.
The length of treatment depends on your concerns and how deep you want the change to occur. Your work with your therapist is unique to you. Research shows that by the 10th session, most people report feeling better. Some clients stop therapy after they began to notice improvements in their symptoms. Some clients decide to continue therapy even after they are feeling better to dive into deeper and older issues and to prevent relapse in the future. The deeper and more transformative work takes more time but clients also report longer-lasting change.
Our therapists prefer meeting with new clients on a weekly basis for the first two months to establish a strong working relationship and to get the momentum going. Some clients start with twice-a-week sessions if they are in distress or want to see results faster. After two months, you can talk with your therapist about whether you want to decrease the frequency of treatment.
Depending on the time of your scheduled phone consultation, you may be talking with either our Client Care Coordinator, Tori Belanger, or one of our therapists.
We have a 48-business hour cancelation and reschedule policy. If you need to reschedule or cancel an appointment, please do so before the 48-hour window. Otherwise, we charge our full fee for late cancelations and no-shows.
We do not have a waitlist. If you want to work with one of our therapists but they are full, we encourage you to contact us again in a few months to see if an opening becomes available.
Schedule a free 15-minute phone consultation to see if we are a good fit.
