I believe that clients have the ability to change and improve their lives. I primarily use a Cognitive therapy approach, however, I also employ concepts, techniques, and strategies from other theories when needed or useful. I focus on helping clients to identify family and personal patterns, maladaptive thought processes, and their own strengths.
I work with adults to provide individual or relationship therapy.
Issues and populations I work with include:
Trauma recovery for survivors or witnesses of crime, domestic violence, childhood abuse, sexual assault, and traumatic death * Depression * Anxiety disorders * Sexual dysfunction (female) * Grief and loss * Women's issues * Assertiveness * Low self-esteem * Divorce and other life transitions * Difficulty with change (relationships, work, parenting, etc) * Meaning, fulfillment, mindfulness. * Clients with non-mainstream family and social arrangements (GLBTQ, BDSM, Poly) and religions (e.g. Wicca) * Kink Aware Professional * Sex-Positive Therapist * Clinical Licensure Supervision for LPC and LMFT candidates in the state of Oregon.
My standard fee for a 45-50 minute session is $80 for intake, all relationship sessions, and 60-minute individual sessions; and $75 for follow-up individual appointments. I offer sliding-fee rates based on income and need.
I provide teletherapy; it may be a covered service, depending on your insurance
I accept the following insurance:
BlueCross and BlueShield
Crime Victims Oregon
MHNet Behavioral Health
Reliant Behavioral Health EAP
**I can bill most other insurance out of network.
