I would love to hear from you. I always try to respond to emails promptly and my voicemail is confidential.

Please note that I do not currently have openings and I do not keep a wait list because of the difficulty of accurately estimating when openings will occur. Here are a list of therapists who support loved ones of people with substance use disorders and may have openings.

Please keep in mind that using regular unencrypted electronic communication has security limitations.

Preparing for Your Appointment

My fee for individual, couples or family sessions are $150 for a 50 minute clinical hour and $200 for longer 80 minute sessions. I do not bill insurance directly, however I can provide detailed invoices to people seeking out of network reimbursement from their insurance plan. There are benefits as well as drawbacks to using insurance for counseling and we can discuss these together if you are interested. I can offer a reduced session fee (sliding scale), if my fees are not accessible to you please discuss this possibility with me. Once you are scheduled to meet with me, I will send you first session paperwork that you can complete ahead of time in order to preserve the length of your first session.

I look forward to meeting you!




Office Location

My office is the town of Edmonds, just north of Seattle, with plentiful free street parking.

My Edmonds office can only be accessed by stairs. Have mobility challenges? I offer virtual sessions to those who can not access my office via stairs.
