In sessions, I utilize my training as a psychotherapist plus my creative, artistic background to facilitate healing, to encourage growth, and to increase a sense of self worth in those with whom I work. While many of my clients engage in Creative Arts Therapy with me, some choose to utilize more traditional verbal therapies in sessions. I have extensive training in both verbal and non verbal approaches. Treatment plans and tools that are introduced are based on individual needs and goals.

Individual sessions are approximately 50 minutes in duration. At first, I typically recommend holding sessions once per week in order to develop goals and build the therapeutic rapport. After some time, I reassess this frequency based on individual needs. Usually I see individuals for anywhere between three months to several years. Sometimes we take breaks and resume sessions when extra support is needed. The way in which we use our time together, the frequency with which we meet, and the goals that we develop together depend on your needs.
Currently I am conducting all sessions via Telehealth from my office in Portland. This will continue for the foreseeable future, with the understanding that I will move back to in-person sessions once the current health crisis has been managed. I utilize the Zoom platform which is HIPPA compliant. My clients that utilize this platform have the responsibility of being in a confidential location and having stable internet access. For those who do not have access to a stable internet connection, I also offer phone sessions.
We will get through this together!
Sessions are $125 for 50 minutes. I accept private pay and some forms of insurance which are listed below. I also offer a sliding scale fee structure for those who cannot afford my full fee. Please inquire about additional details.
