Telehealth - Oregon


If I am outside Oregon, can we continue our therapy session?
You must be in Oregon for us to have our session. At the beginning of every virtual session, my clients must be in Oregon and share their address/location.
What is telehealth?
I provide virtual ‘telehealth’ therapy through SimplePractice video conferencing. SimplePractice is a HIPAA-compliant service where you can access your private portal documents, messages, and appointment reminders.
What insurance plans are you in-network with?
I am in network with PacificSource, First Choice Health, Aetna, and Canopy Employee Assistant Program (EAP).
If I’m out-of-network, can you provide a superbill so my insurance provider can reimburse me?

Yes. I can provide a superbill to out-of-network clients. How does that work? Depending on the coverage, clients pay the full rate at the time of our session and can submit superbills to insurance providers for reimbursement.

Questions about using out-of-network benefits and if superbills work for you? Contact your insurance carrier directly.

What are your rates? How does self-pay work?

15-minute consultation | Complimentary
50-minute session | $150
1-hour session | $180

I accept all major credit cards and checks.

With self-pay, you have the right to request a Good Faith Estimate (an estimate of expected psychotherapy charges before scheduling your first session). Learn about your right to a Good Faith Estimate.

What kind of therapy do you provide?

In my practice, I treat anxiety and depression (aligned with relationships and life-change events) with a combination of tools which include: Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) for values, intention, grounding, and actions; Gottman therapy for communication within relationships; structured Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy for Insomnia (CBT-I) for improved sleep; and Exposure Relaxation and Rescripting Therapy (ERRT).

I use Gottman tools within individual therapy sessions because communication skills are useful in ALL relationships (including family members, friends, neighbors, children, and work colleagues).

You aren’t a couples therapist, so why do you focus on relationships?

All individuals need private space to discuss and reflect on their relationship history and current relationships and an open place to address and align with the relationships they want. My clients emerge from our process with a deeper connection to their true selves and with the tools to create secure and nourishing relationships.

Song lyrics?
I reference song lyrics.
Do you insist on knowing the names of my pets?
Yes. And if you have an animal present in our telehealth session, I will likely demand to see that lovely animal (whether it’s a bird, dog, or cat – no pet discrimination occurs.)
