Katya Kalachevskiy, LPC
Licensed Professional Counselor
Katya Kalachevskiy is a Licensed Professional Counselor and began her career in the mental health field in 2001, graduating from Alaska Pacific University in 2011 with her Master’s Degree in Counseling Psychology. She provides counseling for couples, families, and individuals of all ages.
Katya’s passion for mental wellness started when she took a psychology class in high school. That spark led to her graduating from the University of Alaska, Anchorage in 2001 with a Bachelor of Science degree in psychology.
Katya’s career has provided counseling services and program supervision within many meaningful environments in our community to include the support of people with disabilities, residential treatment for children and adolescents, and community-based therapy for foster parents and birth parents seeking reunification with their children.
Katya’s work history developed a strong background in her current attachment-basedand strength-based approach to therapy. She builds upon that foundation with Internal Family Systems (IFS) and Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing therapy (EMDR) as primary approaches, seeking to support insight and growth in clients who
experience depression, dissociation, distress arising from trauma, attachment issues, and/or anxiety.
An avid learner committed to remaining current in her field, Katya has completed trainings in The Gottman Method, Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT), EMDR, IFS, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), and Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT). The depth of her experience and study have afforded her a capacity to introduce a wide
variety of interventions that fit her client’s needs. Katya’s professional guides and mentors include Esther Perel, Richard Schwartz, Janina Fisher, Dolores Mosquera and Collin Ross.
Katya believes that people are most likely to heal when they connect with a counselor in a way that motivates their efforts to be their best self. She meets clients where they are and encourages their patience and hard work throughout the therapeutic process.

GOOD FAITH ESTIMATE
Beginning January 1, 2022, federal laws regulating client care have been updated to include the “No Surprises” Act. This Act requires health care practitioners to provide current and potential clients who are not using insurance a “Good Faith Estimate” (GFE) on the cost of treatment.
This new regulation is designed to provide transparency to patients regarding their expected medical expenses and to protect them from surprises when they receive their medical bills. It allows patients to understand how much their health care will cost before they receive services.
When you set up services with Coastal Wellness, you will be provided with a verbal Good Faith Estimate (GFE) and will be given a written estimate once services begin. If you are a a current client, you will be provided with a GFE as well. Please contact us at 907-917-0191 with any billing questions.
In addition, the Good Faith Estimate offers specific protections:
You have the right to receive a Good Faith Estimate even if you get superbills, since we are not in-network with insurance.
You have the right to receive a Good Faith Estimate for the total expected cost of any non-emergency healthcare service or items.
You have the right to receive your Good Faith Estimate in writing at least 1 business day before your scheduled healthcare service or item. If a service is scheduled at least 10 business days in advance, the Good Faith Estimate must be provided within 3 business days (of the scheduling, not of the appointment itself). If a service is scheduled at least 3 business days in advance, the Good Faith Estimate must be provided within 1 business day of scheduling.
You have the right to request a Good Faith Estimate before you schedule a healthcare service or item. For services scheduled less than 3 business days in advance, please note that a Good Faith Estimate is not required by federal law, and will not be provided for you in written form except by request.
You have the right to receive a requested Good Faith Estimate within 3 business days.
You have the right to dispute a bill that exceeds your Good Faith Estimate. The federal government offers a dispute resolution process for this purpose.
Make sure to save a copy or picture of your Good Faith Estimate.
