How will we work together?
Are you someone that did all the things successful adults are supposed to do, and yet something is missing? Are you feeling as though you do everything for others? Do you seek relationships where you are seen and heard? Do you have a calling to understand and help heal injustice? Are you curious about mindfulness, holistic health, and spiritual development?
I have created effective skills in my last nineteen years of helping people who are at a turning point in their life. I specialize in working with adults, adolescents, and substance use. I have found there is more to people's life path that is the foundation to their ultimate healing.
My counseling style is psychodynamic—meaning I listen for current patterns in your life that connect to your earliest developmental experiences. This approach is trauma-informed and attachment-oriented and built upon my clinical experience and research working with addiction. I am LBGTQ and competent in working with gender non-conforming folks.
I am a certified yoga teacher and yoga therapist and I find that many of the practices I have learned in over two decades of practicing help my clients with lifestyle and mindfulness life coping strategies. I am also a certified Enneagram teacher, and if it serves you, our counseling can be informed by this map of self awareness and healing.My integration of yoga, spiritual healing, and the Enneagram are tools we might work with in conjunction with the counseling relationship we build together.
Clients tell me that I am both supportive and directive, in-depth and fun, analytical and creative. I have examined my own privilege and culture and invite continual conversations about how this shows up in your community and mental health. Ultimately I am here to support your emotional, mental, and spiritual wellness.
Payment & FAQ
I charge $160 per hour for my services. Sessions will be conducted over telehealth or in my office at 120 Pear Street NE Olympia, Washington, USA.
If paying out of pocket, we can discuss sliding fee options. I can accept cash, check, Health Savings Accounts, and credit cards with Square Cash. Payment is due at the time of service.
I am in network with Premera and Lifewise. If your insurance is out of network, then you are responsible for payment each session and I can provide insured clients with a receipt which they can submit with a claims form to their insurance company for reimbursement. Check with your insurance company to determine what their rate of coverage is for out-of-network mental health services to help you understand what the cost to you will be.
You can call the number on the back of your insurance card and ask if you are covered by an “out-of-network Licensed Mental Health Counselor.” I do not interact with insurance companies that I am out of network with on the clients’ behalf except under extreme circumstances. Your therapy sessions will also apply towards your health insurance deductibles. If you have a Health Savings Account, you may use those funds for your therapy.
If you need to cancel or reschedule your appointment, please make every effort to notify me at least 48 hours in advance, otherwise, you will be charged full price for your session. Thank you!
