Making the first phone call is often the most difficult part of starting therapy. You may feel awkward, embarrassed, or uncertain at first, but please don’t let those feelings stop you from sending that email or making that phone call. The sooner you make contact with a therapist, the sooner you will begin to feel hope and relief.
I am very easy to talk to, and you will quickly feel at ease. Please call me at 503-545-6312 or email me to get more information about your options for counseling and psychotherapy, or to schedule your appointment. I look forward to talking with you!
My office is conveniently located in The Professional Building on the corner of SW 11th Avenue and Yamhill, directly across the street from the Central Library in downtown Portland’s cultural district.
The office is just a few steps away from Max lines, the Portland streetcar, multiple bus lines, and public parking. Restaurants, shopping, cafes and public parks are all nearby.
A public parking garage is located just 1/2 block away, on SW 10th Avenue between Yamhill and Morrison. On-street parking is usually available nearby.
I accept most major insurances, and I will work with your insurance company to ensure that you get the maximum benefits available to you. I accept the following insurances:
- Aetna Student Health
- American Behavioral Health
- Blue Cross / Blue Shield
- First Choice Health
- First Health Network
- HealthNet / MHN
If your insurance company is not on this list, it is very likely that you can still use your out-of-network insurance benefits to pay for counseling. I am happy to work with you and your insurance company so that you can access these benefits and get maximum coverage for your counseling and therapy costs.
My counseling services are also available through many Employee Assistance Programs. Please contact me by phone or email to see whether I accept your employee assistance plan.
I offer flexible, family-friendly appointment scheduling to accommodate your work schedule, your family responsibilities and other life demands. Day, lunchtime, and evening appointments are available. Just let me know your scheduling preference, and I will find an appointment time that meets your needs.
You can also just call me at 503-545-6312 or email me with any questions about counseling, my background or counseling approach, or to find out whether I would be a good fit for you and the issues you want to work on. I’m happy to answer any questions you might have.
