The journey
of a thousand miles
begins with one step.

Where are you going?

Are you facing a life transition or feel ready to get out of a rut?

Do you need support with school or work stress or relationship issues?

Are you curious about strategies for success with ADHD or autism?

Specializing in work with emerging adults (Gen Z) and older, I have specific expertise with addictions, neurodivergence, anxiety, depression and grief across all age ranges. My practice is gender affirming and LGBTQIA+ informed.

My style is calm and warm yet, when appropriate, playful and curious. I focus on allowing people to be understood in their struggles while at the same time, noticing opportunities for growth. Through education, creative approaches, and curious, open-minded investigation, I really believe change for all individuals (and society) is truly possible.

I utilize an integrative approach of CBT, DBT, ACT, coaching and narrative therapy with an existential humanistic framework. My practice is trauma informed and I strive to acknowledge and understand my privilege and biases through a racial equity lens.

In 2022, I completed trainings to be a Brainspotting Therapist Level One. I’m currently in Level One training for Internal Family Systems and completing the Existential-Humanistic Foundations of Therapy Practice certificate program with the Existential-Humanistic Institute.

Online and in person session hours: Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday 11am – 7pm.

Frequently Asked Questions

Consultation

I offer a free 30-minute consultation (via telehealth or phone), so we can get a sense of whether we have a good match for working together.

After the consultation sessions, in person sessions will be available at my office. We can discuss more about how this works.

Telehealth

Just like a face-to-face appointment, your Telehealth visit will be private and confidential. The system for telehealth video conferencing is easy to use and will be set up along with the secure client portal. Access to sufficiently fast internet and a quiet location is required for this service.

Medication & Emergencies

As a licensed counselor, I am not authorized to prescribe medication. However, we can work together to identify prescribers for your mental health needs if medications are suggested.

If you are experiencing a mental health emergency, please contact the Marion County Psychiatric Crisis Center at 503-585-4949, nationally, the Suicide and Crisis Lifeline on the phone number 988 or chat.

Rates

45 minute rate is $140 per session.

60 minute rate is $160 per session.

Intake session rate is $200.

Income based rates also available.

Insurance

I take most major insurances: Regence Blue Cross/Blue Shield, Cigna, Evernorth, Providence, Optum/United, Moda, Pacific Source (including OHP) and several EAP networks.

Depending on your insurance, income based rates may be preferred.

Good Faith Estimate

No Surprises Act: Clients who are not using insurance can receive an estimate of the total expected cost of any non-emergency items or services. I will provide the estimate in writing at least 1 business day before we begin therapy.

For information, call 800-368-1019 or visit www.cms.gov/nosurprises.

Payments

With most services now online, payment through a secure Stripe online system is preferred immediately after session. Co-payments due at time of service unless we have arranged something otherwise.

Secure Online Portal

I use a secure system called Simple Practice to manage your health records. This system is HIPAA compliant, allows for all scheduling and billing, and provides the opportunity to fill out electronic forms and access telehealth video conferencing.

Cancellation Policy

If you do not attend your scheduled appointment, and you have not notified me at least 24 hours in advance, you will be required to pay $70 for a missed session unless another arrangement has been made.
