Frequently Asked Questions
What can I expect in the first session?
Do you take insurance?
I do not take insurance. There are many advantages to keeping your treatment separate from insurance, which include a higher level of confidentiality when records cannot be accessed by your insurance company, less need for a diagnostic label permanently attached to your health record, and care dictated not by the insurance company but rather by you and your provider based on your own needs. If your plan offers out-of-network benefits they may reimburse you for our work together and if so I can provide paperwork to submit for reimbursement. In that case, a diagnostic label would be required by your insurance company, who may also ask for your clinical records from time to time.
What are your session rates?
Sessions are $225 per session. Sliding scale is often available on a case by case basis.
Where are you located?
My practice is based in Portland, Oregon. I am able to see clients in Oregon, as well as in New York and Vermont where I also hold licenses.
