What kind of issues do you work with?

I am used to working with issues that affect families and meeting clients with a wide array of struggles. Most often I see couples, individuals, and families who struggle with relationship difficulties such as marital conflict, depression, and life transitions.

How much does it cost?

The cost is $95 for a 50 minute session. Because of my relationship with the faith community I am able to provide services on a sliding fee schedule so that financial hardship will not be a barrier to health care.

Do you accept insurance payments?

I do not accept insurance payments. Many insurance policies do not pay for counseling, and those that do often are time consuming to work with and pay limited amounts. If I accepted the responsibility of dealing with insurance I would have to raise my rates. I am sorry for the inconvenience this may cause some of you. I am more than willing to provide a receipt for services so that you may pursue reimbursement from your health insurance company or healthcare spending account.

How do I make an appointment?

To make an appointment call the appointment line at 425 301 1315 or email Brenda@Clearwatercounseling.org. Leave your name, number, and a good time to call back. Any messages you leave will be treated as confidential. I will generally return any calls or email I receive after Thursday at 5PM the following Monday.

Do you offer religious counseling?

I do not offer religious, biblical or theological counseling. My professional and personal ethics prevent me from evangelizing during therapy. I do however consider spiritual practices (as defined by the client) to be an important part of mental health.
