My practice is operated in a private room out of my home in Shoreline, Washington. The house is very small and from the 1940s. It is not wheelchair accessible. People using mobility canes will also encounter difficulty navigating tight corners and the sharp edges of furniture (I know this from experience with my father, who is blind), so I recommend you allow me to find and refer you to someone who is set up to better meet your needs. I apologize for the inaccessibility and plan to obtain an accessible office space one day a week just as soon as I can afford it!
**For those who reside in Washington state, but cannot make it in person to sessions, I can now also provide video conferencing or telephone sessions.**
The household contains dogs, cats, and other humans. Your privacy is deeply respected, and during session times, you will not encounter any humans other than Michelle. Some measures have been taken to reduce the possibility for allergic reaction to the animals by the use of air purifiers and vacuuming, but if you are severely allergic to animals, please do not risk coming to sessions with me. The house is also not scent-free and at times there may be the presence of cut flowers or the use of essential oils.
I am near 175th St and 5th Ave NE and accessible via the 373, 347, and 348 King County Metro bus lines. Parking for your car while you are in session is provided in my driveway. Upon arrival, please knock on the door or send me a text letting me know you are here. Please refrain from ringing the doorbell as it will cause the dogs to bark!
Because I practice from my home in Shoreline, Washington, I screen potential clients thoroughly before inviting you into my practice. I will first gather information about you via an intake form that you will submit to me electronically. If what you want to work on aligns with my areas of expertise, I will contact you to set up a free 20-minute phone consultation. During this time, I will further assess my ability to serve your needs and feel out the level of fit for our potential working relationship. If I determine that you would be better served by a colleague at any point in the process, I will provide a referral for you to someone I trust.
If you and I both feel we will work well together, I will provide you a link to schedule an appointment online. Note that sessions require prepayment at time of booking*. Once your booking is confirmed, I will send you the address for my home office. Please do not show up early for your appointment as I may be finishing up with another client. There should be no overlap if clients arrive at their specified appointment time.
My cancellation policy is 48 hours prior to your appointment time. I do not make exceptions for any reason. If something goes wrong and you cannot cancel your appointment using the online scheduler, send me an email immediately so that the time stamp indicates that you’ve attempted to cancel according to the policy. Otherwise you will be charged a full session fee.
I do accept short-notice same-day appointments for urgent situations with established clients if there are spots available. There are no cancellation refunds on appointments made for time slots occurring 48 hours or less of the time of booking.
*If you have difficulty with the online schedule or cannot use a debit/credit card to prepay, please contact me and let me know your situation.
