Project Description

We have reopened our offices and look forward to serving you in person.

The health and safety of our clients and employees remains a very high priority.  For the safety of all, clients will be screened prior to entering the office and we ask that clients please:

  • Wear a mask for the duration of your visit with us.
  • Put a card on file for payment to limit personal contact (optional)
  • Continue with teletherapy (online or phone) if you have contracted the Coronavirus or have been around someone who has contracted the virus
  • Continue teletherapy if you are at high-risk for contracting the virus due to your work or other circumstances
  • Take your temperature the morning of your appointment.  Reschedule if your temperature is 100.4°F (38°C) or higher

We are still offering secure video and phone counseling sessions.

We are accepting new clients.  Call 253-770-5956 or Click Here to Schedule Online.

By the end of your first session, we share a preliminary assessment of your situation and a plan for moving forward.

Are you ready for CHANGE and LASTING SOLUTIONS? We will help you envision, fall in love with, and create your best future.

Aim for change. Let’s HOPE together!

Do you feel bound and unable to move past your hurt?

Are you facing severe challenges in your home & family life?

What is the condition of your heart?

Everyone experiences periods of stress, sadness, grief and conflict. So, when you’re feeling "off" or if things aren't going well for you at home or work, it can be hard to know if it’s time to see a professional.

Here are several signs you (and maybe your spouse and family) should see a therapist as soon as possible:

  • You and/or your family have gone through a traumatic situation and can't stop thinking about it

  • Your feelings and emotions seem more intense than normal

  • You and your spouse are no longer talking or your communication is always negative

  • There is a breakdown in communication between family members

  • You feel disconnected from the people and activities you love

  • Your friends have told you they're concerned about you

  • You or your spouse are contemplating divorce or having an affair

  • You have unexplained and recurring head-aches, stomach-aches and are sick more often.

INSURANCE

Winds of Liberty Hope & Wellness Center is a private pay practice and an out of network provider with many insurance companies. We do not bill insurance companies directly and client payment is due prior to each session.

After you pay for your session, we can provide you with a superbill that will contain the appropriate billing codes and any other information you need to submit to your insurance company for reimbursement.  Subsequently, your insurance company will reimburse you per their out-of- network policy.  We do not guarantee reimbursement from any given company.

Check out Reimbursify to streamline and track insurance claims for you and your family.

Services may be covered in full or in part by your health insurance or employee benefit plan.  Check your coverage carefully by asking the following questions:

  • What is my Out of Network coverage for mental health services?
  • What is my deductible and has it been met?
  • How many sessions per year does my health insurance cover?
  • What is the coverage amount per therapy session?
  • Is approval required from my primary care physician?

Mental health coverage is a requirement for most insurance companies in Washington State so you may be eligible to receive reimbursement for counseling services through out-of-network benefits, medical spending or health care savings accounts.

Many clients choose not to involve insurance companies in their mental health care. Their counseling is not limited by the diagnosis, treatment plan or session limits that health insurance companies dictate. Additionally, insurance companies often limit the number of sessions and even the type of therapy and many do not cover couples/relational or family therapy.

By paying privately or out of pocket, we can assure private pay clients of the highest degree of privacy, flexibility and control of their mental health records allowed by Washington state law.
