Plus Answers To Your Frequently Asked Fee & Insurance Questions
Counseling is an investment of time and energy for both people. You may have been struggling for a long time, or you may be newly-diagnosed with an illness or disorder. Either way, you deserve the time and energy it takes to work on yourself. It may be hard at times, but it will be worth it.

Do You Offer Sliding Scale Fees?
No, not at this time. If it would be burdensome for you to pay my full fee, I work with many insurance companies through the fine folks at Emerge Natural Health Care.
Do You Take Insurance?
Yes, I am panelled with several insurance companies in Oregon and Washington as an employee of Emerge Natural Health Care. For an up-to-date list, please contact their front desk at 360-787-3615. If you have health insurance with a company that I don’t work with and would still like to work with your insurance, your insurance may provide some reimbursement. To help, I can provide a monthly superbill that you may submit to your insurance for reimbursement.
How Do I Discover What My Insurance Will Cover?
To find out what your insurance may cover, contact your insurance and ask if you have out-of-network mental health coverage. If you need to provide a “CPT code” or a “service code” you can provide the following codes:
- Individual psychotherapy, 60 minutes – CPT 90837
- Intake interview – CPT 90791
You may also want to mention the type of license that I have to ensure services with my type of credential are covered. I am a Licensed Professional Counselor in Oregon and a Licensed Mental Health Counselor in Washington. My degree is a PhD in clinical psychology. Other things you may want to ask about are:
- What your deductible is
- What your co-insurance payment will be
- How many visits you get per year
- If you need authorization for your visits
- Details on how to submit a superbill
