Psychotherapy

Beginning April 18, 2021, I am available for online psychotherapy sessions (with residents of Washington state who are 18 years of age and older), currently specializing in the following issues:

  • Stress management
  • Coping skills
  • Women’s issues
  • Work/life balance
  • Grief and loss
  • Life transitions
  • Emotional eating

Telehealth sessions are available via a secure, HIPAA-compliant platform on Sundays + Mondays. If you’d like to make an appointment, please leave me a message on my confidential voicemail at (425) 276-1908 or request a phone call by emailing me at info@drmcwatters.com.

For additional details about my psychotherapy practice, please review my Psychology Today profile.

If you are seeking services that are clearly outside of my scope of practice as listed above, I’m not always able to return such calls in order to offer referrals. For example, I do not see children, adolescents, couples, or families. Also, I prioritize woman-identified clients at this time. Please check your current insurance provider directory for other options, visit Crisis Connections, or check out the American Psychologist Locator if I do not appear to be a good fit for your current needs.

If you are experiencing a life-threatening emergency, or need to speak with someone right away,
dial 911, call the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline at 1-800-273-8255 (TALK), or go to your nearest emergency room.

Once we’ve talked via phone and have scheduled an appointment for our initial intake, you’re encouraged to complete this ACE (adverse childhood experience) quiz in addition to the required new client packet, which I will email to you.

Below you’ll find additional details regarding fees and insurance. Psychotherapy is a significant investment of time, money, and energy, so it’s important to have all of the information you need to make the best decision when choosing a new treatment provider.

  • I am no longer active on any insurance panels. All psychotherapy services provided are “out of network.”
  • Payment is due at time of service. My current fee schedule can be found in the new client packet that will be emailed to you and is available upon request. If you’d like, I am happy to submit a bill to your insurance plan within 1-2 business days after our sessions so that any applicable reimbursement can be sent to you.
  • For your convenience, I accept credit card payment via Square, PayPal, and Zelle. I offer discounts for individuals who do not require insurance billing and also use a form of payment that deducts directly from your checking account (versus a credit card, which generates additional merchant service fees).

Please note that participation in educational programming offered separately through The SAVOR Project does not constitute a therapeutic relationship.
