Insurance

Clients who wish to use their health insurance are responsible for informing me of any change in their insurance information and keeping abreast of their benefits such as deductable and co-pay amounts. I  am currently an in-network preferred provider for the following insurance providers:

  • Premera Blue Cross
  • Blue Cross/Blue Shield
  • LifeWise
  • University of Washington GAIP
  • Regence Blue Shield
  • First Choice Health
  • Kaiser

Please note that when billing your insurance company, a clinical diagnosis and treatment plan must be submitted and recorded as part of your medical records. For this reason, some clients choose to defer using insurance and pay out-of-pocket to ensure a higher level of confidentiality regarding their mental health records. Full out-of-pocket rates are $160 for a 60-minute initial assessment and $140 for a 50-minute counseling session. I can receive cash, checks made out to Colombara Counseling LLC, or take credit card payments.

Complementary Phone Consultation

Before committing to therapy, I offer a complimentary 20-minute phone consultation as an opportunity for you to ask questions and see if we would be a good fit for each other. If I cannot help you, I will gladly assist you by providing referrals.

Cancellations

Cancelled appointments must be done at least 24 hours prior. Otherwise, the full rate of the session will be charged.
