My goal is to have open communication about all aspects of treatment. I strive to be as clear as possible about fees and insurance payments, and I do my own billing and scheduling.
I strive to treat all clients with respect without regard to race, ethnicity, national origin, religious belief, ability, age, gender, gender identity, sexual orientation or financial circumstances.
I have 30+ years of experience working with children, adolescents and adults. I specialize in women and teen issues. Parents are an integral part of treatment for children and teens.
My approach is based on Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) integrated with knowledge of child development and person centered therapy. I encourage clients to set goals to work on in between sessions, but do not routinely assign homework.
Although the world is full of suffering, it is full also of the overcoming of it. -Helen Keller
TELEHEALTH: I prefer in-person appointments, as I find them to be more effective. Telehealth is still available, and useful during times of illness, bad weather, or transportation problems. Please confirm your insurance coverage for telehealth now that the public health emergency has expired. Clients must be within the geographical boundaries of Oregon at the time of telehealth appointments.
I use HIPAA compliant Zoom Professional for telehealth appointments.
I am in-network with the following insurance plans.
I do not accept Medicare or Oregon Health Plan. I am out of network for Providence Health Plan, but I can bill out of network benefits.
