Fees and Location
One of my primary values is to make therapy affordable and accessible.  I have a sliding scale and will work with you and do my best to make sure money is not a barrier to obtaining services. I also except Medicaid.

My office is centrally located in Seattle.  I have evening and some weekend appointments available.  After we talk, if we decide to set up an appointment, I will e-mail or mail you my one sheet with information, directions, and other details about my office and our initial visit.

How do I pick the right therapist?
There are many different types of therapists and we all have different styles and personalities.  The most important thing is that you feel like you can work with the person and that they meet your needs.  You can make a list of questions before you contact a potential counselor.  Below are some common questions that people often use to see if it’s going to be a good fit.
