Therapy is a partnership. The purpose of the initial consultation is to get to know one another before making this commitment. It is not a traditional therapy session. We will briefly discuss reasons for which you seek services and your goals for therapy and I will provide additional information about my style of practice. After this initial consultation, we will make a decision about whether I will be able to effectively address your needs and determine if this partnership will be beneficial for you. If we determine that we may not be a good match at this time, I will be happy to offer referrals to alternate therapists.
I primarily work with teens and adults. I will likely reopen to children in the coming days.
I specialize and hold certifications in Thanatology and ADHD.
I have a passion for supporting people of all ages through grief and loss, while also in addition to supporting clients and caregivers through the process of end of life and anticipatory grief.
ADHD is my newest interest, particularly in helping clients address facets of executive dysfunction in never-before-diagnosed adults.
Additionally, I typically include boundary work, self-care, and work/life balance education in my work with clients in conjunction with the issues they present. These issues range from symptoms of anxiety and depression, life transitions, relationship and family dynamics, work and school challenges. I am also a sex positive counselor and welcome clients who create their own meaning in their relationships.
Advantages of teletherapy
- Convenience and flexibility in time and place
- Increased accessibility to care for under-served populations in rural areas
- Flexibility during times of illness or other limiting factors when in-person is not appropriate
- Continuity and consistency of care, fewer missed sessions
- Potential cost savings in time away from work, travel time, and gas.
Additional notes: I am licensed to practice in Oregon, which means that both you and I need to be in the state of Oregon to have our sessions.
I currently bill Aetna, Cigna/Evernorth, Regence BCBS, PacificSource, Moda, and United Behavioral Health able bill as an in-network provider. I also accept payment from some insurance companies as an out of network provider.
If you have health insurance and would like to utilize it, please provide your insurance information before your first visit so that we can verify coverage. Some insurance companies will not reimburse the provider directly and so based on their policies, I may ask that you make the full payment while you await direct reimbursement.
I am also glad to provide receipts for fees so that you may seek direct reimbursement from your insurer, or any other third party.
Out of Pocket
I am pleased to offer several payment options.
In-Person visits: Credit/Debit, HSA, Cash, Check
Telehealth Visits: Credit/Debit, HSA, Check (if received prior to appointment).
Note: Other than illness or accident, if your appointment is canceled with less than 24 hours notice, you will be responsible to pay the fees for that scheduled time.
