Seattle Online Therapy
For those who cannot reliably make it into our Queen Anne office for therapy, we offer secure online therapy sessions for individuals and couples. Online therapy and online counseling are a great way to access the treatment you need from the comfort of your home, or wherever you might be. Don’t let the constraints of this pandemic (or your busy lifestyle) prevent you from getting the help you want and need.

Is Online Therapy right for you?
Despite its benefits and wide availability, online therapy is not right for everybody. We offer online therapy under the right circumstances, but there are some caveats and guidelines to which we must adhere. These requirements have to do with your privacy, our compliance, and the success and efficiency of the therapeutic process.
Ultimately, the goal of therapy is to make you feel better, so it’s essential to ensure we remain within the guidelines. Some things to know about online therapy:
- We offer online therapy throughout Washington State only
- Online therapy is for individuals as well as couples
- Therapy sessions are conducted over a HIPAA-compliant telehealth platform and are completely secure and private
- You must access online therapy from a secure and reliable connection
- You must have a quiet, private place to access your session; many clients who do not have privacy in their homes choose to have sessions from the quiet comfort of their car
Seattle Online Therapists
My therapeutic method is designed to help you let go of what’s holding you back and create a more authentic version of who you are. My approach is about building confidence; it’s about supporting people as they learn how to trust themselves, their own instincts and intuition. My clients often tell me that I’m very grounded and down-to-earth but ultimately, I’m inspired by them.
I’ve spent the last four years inside community mental health settings with many different kinds of people from all walks of life, and what I know is that we can find an integrated and holistic approach that is just right for you. No matter what brings you to my practice, I meet you exactly where you are and adapt our time together to include art therapy, meditation instruction, EMDR, and any number of other modalities.
What devices will work with online therapy?
You can use virtually any internet-connected device with an up-to-date browser, such as Chrome or Firefox. Prior to your session we will send you a link to connect with our telehealth platform. All you have to do is click the link. No need to download anything to your phone or computer.
If you have any questions or concerns about these or any other aspects of treatment, please connect with us directly so that we can help.
How does Online Therapy work?
From our perspective, online therapy sessions are really no different from individual therapy sessions. Online sessions are conducted from a private space in our office over a secure, HIPAA-compliant connection. We do everything we can to make you feel comfortable and at-ease.
Is Online Counseling as good as in person?
Maybe you’re new to our practice, or maybe you’re already engaged in therapy with one of us. Either way, you may be initially hesitant or uncomfortable with the remote aspect of online therapy. We want you to know that in our experience, folks find it easy to settle in once they allow themselves to give it a try. If you have concerns, we’d be happy to answer any questions you may have before we begin.

We do not participate with any insurance panels. Anchor Light Therapy Collective is considered an out-of-network provider. We have chosen to not panel with any insurance companies and instead focus on providing the best care to our clients. Bypassing insurance allows us to create treatment plans that are not influenced by criteria dictated by insurance companies and offer the utmost privacy to our clients.
As a courtesy to any individual clients who wish to utilize their insurance benefits, I am happy to verify your out-of-network plan benefits to tell you what portion, if any, may be covered by your health insurance provider.
The client will pay for their session at the time of service. We will then file an electronic claim on your behalf, as well as submit any additional documentation required by your insurance company.
If your plan offers out of network coverage, they will reimburse you directly by mailing you a check.
Out of network insurance coverage varies. Most insurance plans offer out of network coverage that reimburses at 40-70% once you have met the out of network deductible.
