Therapists In-Network with First Choice Health in Seattle

First Choice Health is a common health insurance in Seattle, and individuals who have First Choice Health may wish to find therapists who are in-network with their health insurance.

When you see a therapist who is in-network with First Choice Health, each session you’ll pay only a copay, which typically ranges from $0-$75/session. Depending on your plan, you may first need to pay the provider’s full session fee until you meet your annual deductible, which is the total amount of medical expenses required before your health insurance starts to cover costs. Some plans cover the cost of in-network therapy sessions before the deductible is met; to verify whether your specific plan covers therapy sessions and at what rate, visit the First Choice Health website or call the number on the back of your insurance card and ask about your coverage for outpatient mental health.

It takes courage and self-care to reach out for help. Thank you for considering me as a Caring Presence in your healing process. You can feel safe to talk about whatever you need to because I work collaboratively, and my calmness and compassion undergird the therapy. Clients often talk about relationships with others, self and/or their body. My interactive and intuitive style helps you to recognize internal resources and use them, along with my support, to relieve distress and build energy for change.
I specialize in Somatic Psychotherapy and Clinical Hypnosis. Somatic (or Body) Psychotherapy helps you to feel more connected to and grounded in your body during times of stress and uncertainty. Change occurs by listening to, learning from and living more fully into your body. Change also can be fostered by taking a vacation from your body in Clinical Hypnosis, and then returning with less tension and greater calm. While I have extensive experience with a wide variety of medical conditions, the way I work can benefit you in healing from many emotional, relational and physical issues.
