Am I the Right Therapist For You?

Seattle Anna Charbonneau Counseling

Finding a therapist who is a good match to you in terms of style, personality, and approach is very important for good therapy!

Everyone has different preferences and needs. Before we begin working together, we can talk about your needs for therapy and my style and approach. I welcome your questions! If I am not the right person for you, I'll do what I can to help you get connected to someone who is a good match.

My Office Hours, Therapy Sessions Availability, and Fees

Fremont Office Hours

My office hours for sessions at my therapy office in Fremont, Seattle are:

The fee for in office visits is $150 per session. Sessions in my office are 55 minutes. I accept cash, check, or credit card.

Sessions via Phone or Video

I understand that coming into an office each week is not ideal or possible for everyone. I aim to provide ethical therapy to people who can't come in to an office on a regular schedule. I give my full attention to each session and treat phone and video sessions the same as I do in-person therapy.

Phone and secure video sessions can be scheduled on:

Sessions via phone or video can be scheduled in smaller time blocks; you are welcome to schedule either a 25 minute appointment or a 50 minute appointment. I provide a discount for these services as they cost me less to deliver.

The fee for video sessions, using a HIPAA-compliant, private video service is $70 per 25 minute session. The fee for telephone sessions is $60 per 25 minute session. Payment for video or phone sessions can be arranged by check or credit card.


Insurance Information

Please contact me if you would like to use your insurance for sessions.

Using your insurance will require me to provide a formal diagnosis for you during our work together, which I am happy to do at your request. If you decide to use insurance, your insurance company will also be able to request your treatment records and see information about your therapy. Your insurance may not cover treatment for certain mental health conditions.

I am pursuing credentialing as an in-network preferred provider with the following insurances in Washington State:

For all other insurances, in office visits are eligble for reimbursement through any insurance providers under "out of network" benefits. I can bill your insurance on your behalf. This is called "courtesy billing." If you'd like me to complete billing for you, I will ask you to complete a form and bring your insurance card to the first visit.

Most insurances will only reimburse for in-office visits. Regence may begin reimbursement for video sessions. I encourage you to call your insurance company to verify which types of services will be covered.
