Currently accepting new clients 
To make an appointment, please call my office and leave a confidential voicemail at (503) 267-3149

Fees

My usual and customary fee is $125 for a 50-minute counseling session. Payment is due at each session.

 

Convenient payment plans are available - no fees, no interest. We decide what you can pay each pay period and set up for that amount to be automatically paid on the day of the month you chose.  Then we continue therapy as often as needed. The payments continue until the balance is paid in full. No fees, no interest.

I am happy to provide you with a invoice that you can submit to your insurance company for reimbursement. It will have all the coding your insurance company needs - you send it in and they send you a check for what they cover.

Insurance

 My services may be able to be reimbursed in full or in part by your health insurance or employee benefit plan. Please check your coverage carefully by asking the following questions:

 What are my mental health benefits?

  • What is the coverage amount per therapy session?

  • How many therapy sessions does my plan cover?

  • How much does my insurance pay for an out-of-network provider?

  • Is approval required from my primary care physician?

Studies have shown that talk therapy works as well as pills do for depression, anxiety and other disorders. Actually, it works better, if you take into account the lower relapse rate. The advantage of cognitive therapy (over drug therapy) is that it seems to keep working even after the therapy sessions are over. Often a majority of those who are treated with medications alone may relapse. But the majority of those treated with talk therapy continue to do well. A cost-benefit analysis shows that while cognitive therapy may be as expensive as drug treatment to start with (since it involves extended one-to-one sessions with a highly trained specialist); it is cheaper in the long run because there are no prescriptions to refill. And the new skills you learn will be with you the rest of your life.

After the issues you are struggling with are resolved with the help of therapy, you may become more efficient and more productive in your work life. You may be able to set better goals and reach for the kind of success that will give you a sense of real fulfillment; once you are not being hindered by the heavy weight of old struggles and problems.
