Payment and fees are typically discussed at the free initial consultation. It is also possible to discuss your payment and insurance options over the phone before we meet.
Payment is required at the beginning of each session. You may pay with cash, check or card.
Free Initial Consult
I provide a thirty minute free initial consultation. The purpose of this consultation is to find out if we will be a good fit moving forward. We will spend a few minutes filling out paper work together and then we will discuss what brings you in. If we both feel like it would be a good fit we will make an appointment for the following week to get started with the therapeutic process. If I feel like you can be better served by a different therapist I will let you know and provide you with some referrals.
I also accept insurance payments if your provider covers mental health benefits. I would be happy to call your insurance provider on your behalf to find out how much your co-pay will be and how many sessions are allowed.
I am in network with the following insurance providers:
- Health Republic Insurance
- Oregon’s Health CO-OP
- Providence Health Plan
- Regence BC/BS
- United Behavioral Health
I am an out of network provider for all other insurance providers in Portland.
Sliding Scale Fee
My standard fee for individual therapy or couples counseling is $100. However, I am able to slide as low as $60 per therapy session if you are paying out of pocket. If you would like to take advantage of my sliding scale fee, you will need to decide how much you are able to pay for a weekly session.
