Fees & FAQ

Service Fees:

My fee for a 50-minute counseling session is $70. I occasionally have sliding scale slots ($50/session) available for those with limited access to resources.  I am not able to take pro bono work at this time.

I do not accept insurance. You may be eligible for reimbursement through your insurance. Upon request, I’ll provide you with a receipt that you may submit to your insurance company.

Finding a therapist who’s a good fit for you is important. I offer a free, face-to-face, thirty minute consultation for all new clients. To schedule an appointment, please email, leave me a voicemail, or fill in this contact form.  I’ll reply within 48 hours.

My office is located at 526 NW 21st Ave, at the corner of NW Hoyt & 21st. Across Hoyt there is a convenience store; one block further down 21st there’s a Coffee Time; one block east of my office sits Couch Park. The office entrance is marked by a vintage wrought iron door underneath a large purple “Wise Counsel & Comfort” sign.

Parking in the Alphabet District can be tricky. Some nights there will be ample street parking, and other nights it’ll be necessary to drive around for several frustrating minutes before finding a spot.

Buses 77, 15 and 20 as well as Jeld Wen Field’s MAX stop may offer convenient alternatives to driving.  Check Trimet’s trip planning website if you’re so inclined.

When you arrive, please take a seat in the waiting room. Help yourself to some complimentary tea, and I will be with you shortly.
