I highly recommend scheduling a free 30 minute consultation. This is time for you to ask me questions about my style, approach, practice and any other questions you might have. It's also a good idea to meet with a couple of therapists to make an informed decision. You can schedule a consultation right away under the contact section.
I have a sliding scale for 50 minute sessions of 125-150.00. You will be provided with a good faith estimate per the No Surprises Act at the beginning of services with the rate agreed upon listed.
There is no fee for missed appointments. Life happens! I appreciate notice and will work with you to reschedule your appointment.
Everyone is different and coming to therapy with different needs. Some people find that every couple of weeks works well and others find that weekly is better. Together, we will agree on a reasonable and therapeutically valuable cadence. Sometimes, people find they are going through a challenging time and need more support and we can adjust frequency to meet that need. Other times, life is improving and/or busy and more spaced out sessions make sense.
What if I am not a good fit for you? That's OK! It happens. We will work together to ensure you have resources to find a different provider. This is your journey and it's critical you feel comfortable with whomever you are going to work with in therapy.
In some cases, you may need a different provider with a specialty that I do not possess. I will be sure to collaborate with you to identify the right expertise recommended and provide resources.
I see clients virtually as well as in person. My in-person practice is located in NE Portland in the Beaumont Neighborhood. There is plenty of free parking, ADA accessibility and is in a suite with several others providers.
When you schedule a virtual visit, per telehealth law, you must be in the state where your provider is licensed at the time of the session. For my practice, that means, you must be physically present in Oregon or Washington when the virtual appointment happens. If you have any questions please feel free to contact me.
