Individual sessions are 45 minutes and the fee is $175.00. Couple therapy sessions are 50 minutes and the fee is $200.00. The fees I charge are competitive and within the normal and customary range for mental health services in the Portland metro Area.
I am considered a preferred, in-network provider with a number of insurance companies. These include:
- Pacific Source
- Regence Blue Cross Blue Shield
If I am not in your network and your health insurance carrier allows you to choose an out-of-network provider (generally a PPO or POS plan), I can provide you with a statement of services so that you can seek reimbursement. I am also willing to do “courtesy billing” in which I submit the request for reimbursement to your insurance company. You may want to check with your carrier to verify coverage for out-of-network providers and for rates of reimbursement.
Appointment Cancellations or Changes Consistency is an essential aspect of therapy. I meet with patients at least once per week. Once we agree on a regular time(s) to meet during the week, I will reserve those hours for you. I will not charge you for sessions you cancel with at least 24 hours notice, up to three weeks per calendar year. For all other sessions where you provide me with 24 hour notice, and you would like to reschedule for another time, I will do my best to accommodate your request. Please be aware that my practice is generally full or close to full, so rescheduling may sometimes not be possible. If rescheduling is not possible and you have already missed three weeks for the calendar year or you are unable to provide 24 hours notice, you are responsible for payment for the missed session(s). If you are using insurance to pay for therapy, insurance companies will not pay for missed sessions and so you are responsible for paying the full insurance reimbursement for a missed session.
Your patient records and information will be kept confidential and shared only when necessary to provide care and services, or by your authorization, or when required or permitted by law.
I accept cash or checks. I do not accept credit cards or PayPal.
