Frequently Asked Questions about My Portland Counseling Practice


What is my rate?

I offer a sliding scale fro $60-$90 for a 50-minute session. Relative to other professionals, my rate is low given that I do not accept insurance, and typically persons cannot afford to pay out-of-pocket the higher rates of other professionals.

I also reserve several spaces on my schedule for persons with limited finances who are committed to their personal growth, and who would otherwise not be able to benefit from therapy. If this applies to you, please feel welcome to discuss this with me.

Which methods of payment do I accept?

I accept payments by personal check, credit card, cash, and Paypal. I accept the following credit cards.

* Although I do not regularly schedule sessions on the weekend, for the convenience of my clients who travel from afar, I can schedule weekend multiple-session intensives.

Frequency of Sessions

Sessions are 50-minutes long, beginning on the hour. Generally, I work with clients either on a weekly or bi-weekly basis. New clients often will begin meeting with me on a weekly basis, and then change to bi-weekly.

Telephone Sessions

I offer the possibility of telephone counseling to residents of Oregon. Given interstate restrictions on counseling by telephone, I am available to work by telephone with non-Oregon residents as a personal growth mentor and educator.

Cancellation Policy

I request that if it is necessary for you to cancel an appointment or workshop registration, you please do so at least 24 hours ahead of time. Otherwise you will be charged. Of course, exceptions are made for cancellations due to medical reasons. Group fees are charged by the month, irrespective of your attendance.

Do I accept insurance?

Generally my services are not covered by insurance.
