ASIAN FEMMES: ARE YOU READY TO EMBRACE YOUR SELF-CARE, WHILE HONORING THE RICHNESS OF YOUR HERITAGE AND FAMILY CULTURE, SO YOU CAN BUILD HEALTHIER RELATIONSHIPS?
Prioritizing your care doesn't mean that you need to feel guilty or apologize.
Licensed Mental Health Counselor
Licensure Supervisor for Associates
I help people:
support others without doing things for them
create less frequent interactions from toxic people in their lives
not give beyond their budgeted time, energy or finances
honoring their commitment to themselves about what they will and will not tolerate in relationships
This is for....
Asian Femmes who want to show up weekly for themselves and want to prioritize their own well being before care-taking for others.
Asian Femmes who want a DO IT WITH YOU framework, where they will be given a general process and a safe container, but the majority of the work will be up to them to implement.
Asian Femmes who are open to doing body based work, not just traditional talk therapy.
Asian Femmes who are willing to examine how internalized white body supremacy might show up in their urges and bodies, which lead to burnout.
Asian Femmes who are looking for someone to challenge their existing patterns.
Asian Femmes who are open to introducing a new way to have a relationship with their work that might make them feel uncomfortable (in a good way).
Asian Femmes who are open to examining their family of origin and childhood wounds.
This is not for....
People who are looking for quick fixes or short term therapy (anything less than a year)
People who are looking to use their insurance to supplement the cost of therapy. Weekly therapy sessions are $250 per 50 minute session. I can provide super bills for you to submit to your insurance carrier if you have out of network benefits.
People who are looking for sliding scale slots. I don't have any at this moment.
People who are looking to meet bi monthly or once a month. I only see people weekly.
People who are looking for in person meetings. I only see people virtually.
People who live outside of the state of Washington. If you live outside the state of Washington, but want to work with me, consider joining my group coaching program at The Unburnout Strategy.
People who want their therapist to "fix" them or "rescue" them. Therapists can provide a framework, but the work will be up to you to implement.
babies, children, adolescents, teens, or families.
People who struggle with: OCD, insomnia/sleep disorders, substance use, eating disorders, psychosis, or actively struggle with suicidal/homicidal ideation. Due to the nature of my small practice, I am unable to accommodate folx who are in crisis.
People who want to be seen during evenings and weekends. I only see clients Mon-Wed from 6am till 1pm.
WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS FOR NOT USING INSURANCE?
To protect your confidentiality
No limit to how many sessions you can attend
No clinical diagnosis on your medical record
More choices for therapist based on your fit
Ability to continue with your current therapist even if you lose insurance or change insurance/jobs
When a mental health diagnosis is filed on your record, it is considered a pre-existing condition. In the future, this could potentially increase the costs of your insurance or prevent you from getting coverage altogether.
There is no limit for amount of sessions. With the use of insurance, there is sometimes a limit for number of sessions covered.
WHAT IS A GOOD FAITH ESTIMATE?
Beginning January 1, 2022, federal law requires health care practitioners to provide current and potential clients who don’t have insurance or who are not using insurance a “Good Faith Estimate” (GFE) on the cost of treatment.
This new law is designed to provide transparency to clients regarding their expected medical expenses and to protect them from surprises when they receive their medical bills.
While it is not possible for a therapist to know, in advance, how many therapy sessions may be necessary or appropriate for a given person, this form provides an estimate of the cost of services provided.
I expect treatment will require continued weekly or bi-weekly sessions
continuing through the end of the year, at $250 per session for a total of 48 weeks, accounting for vacations and holidays for an estimated total of $12,000 (weekly sessions).
WHAT ARE YOUR RIGHTS WITH THE GOOD FAITH ESTIMATE?
You have the right to receive a GFE for the total expected cost of any non-emergency healthcare services, including therapy services.
You can ask your healthcare provider, and any other provider you choose, for a GFE before you schedule a service.
You have the right to initiate the client–provider dispute resolution process if the charges you are actually billed substantially exceed the expected charges in this estimate (at least $400 more than your GFE).
You are entitled to disagree with any recommendations made to you concerning your treatment and you may discontinue treatment at any time.
Make sure to save a copy of your GFE or take a photo of it.
This estimate of costs is not a contract and does not obligate you to obtain clinical services from your provider.
