Rainbow Health Center COVID-19 Resources
During this time of social distancing, the providers at Rainbow Health Center want you to know we are still here for you. For many of us the ways we are here look different. Check below to see the providers who are scheduling new appointments and if we can fit your needs.
** Healthy and strong together **
Dr Jill Corey, ND: Dr. Corey is still available for appointments via telehealth and phone. Dr. Corey is able to offer a wide range of health support and hormone therapy support virtually. Dr. Corey accepts Regence, Premera, Lifewise and Firstchoice insurance plans. They also offer sliding scale cash pay rates to those that qualify. Call or text 206.971.6708 for more information.
Dr Chelesa Unruh, MD: Dr Unruh is available for telehealth visits for established patients and in person visits for new patients. Dr Unruh manages hormone therapy for all ages (including children/teens and puberty blockers), can write letters for state and federal gender marker change requests, and refer for surgery. Dr Unruh accepts United, Premera, FirstChoice, Cigna, Regence, Amerigroup, and has a discounted cash rate.
Sharonne O’Shea, L.Ac.: Under the Governor’s “Stay Home – Stay Healthy” proclamation (20-25), “alternative medicine” providers, such as acupuncturists, may continue to see/treat patients. Some acupuncturists with immunocompromised family members have closed their practices temporarily. I remain open to see patients at RHC on Fridays and in Lacey on Tuesdays.
As acupuncture breaks the skin surface, I have always been compliant with best practices to limit infection such as changing linens between each patient, cleaning my hands before and after treatment, and – as required by federal law – using one-time use, sterile needles. In addition, I now screen everyone for fever and/or symptoms of upper respiratory infection and reschedule folks who have one or both. I am also wiping down surfaces that I normally would not, such as door knobs and shared pens, and wearing a mask while treating patients as I cannot perform acupuncture from 6 feet away – I may have long arms but not THAT long and no one wants me to play darts with them as the target.
Perhaps more importantly, I am diligently working at not succumbing to pan(ic)demic mindset; I leave a roll of TP on the shelf for the next person, I get outside daily, I keep a regular schedule, and – since my schedule has freed up considerably with no kid activities, meetings, etc. – I am getting lots of rest. It is possible to take the situation seriously and lightly simultaneously. For instance, my kids share with you this message of empowerment during these times of uncertainty: “Wash-your-hands-ington” residents like to “give high fivers not high fevers.” https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5jhwyAsZAvo. Stay well, not just virus-free.

* I am offering more sliding fee and pro-bono sessions right now as there is need, and I do so with the clear recognition of the people and oppressive systems that led to this need: that I am intending and currently able to be flexible in providing more counseling with sliding and no fee is in direct response to the corrupt, neglectful, and oppressive actions and laws of the wealthy people, corporations, and US government that profit without care for the rest of us.

Erin Daly, MA, LMFTA, ATR-P
I am currently offering telehealth sessions via phone and HIPPA compliant video sessions. I am currently available for telehealth sessions for anyone in Washington State.
I offer therapeutic services for individuals for ages 12 and up, as well as relationship focused therapy for families and romantic partnerships. I provide psychotherapy (i.e. talk therapy), as well as Art Therapy, Mindfulness, and Somatic Based Therapies.
Fees: My regular fee is $110/clinical hour. As always, I believe in supporting access for all to the best of my ability. To do this, I am continuing to offer flexible sliding scale rates. I work with people on what makes therapy more accessible to them.
Insurance: I am an out of network provider, and am not able to bill insurance companies directly at this time. If your insurance company offers reimbursement for out of network providers, I can provide you with the necessary paperwork to receive reimbursement.
