Individual, couples, and family counseling are available in my North Portland office as well as by phone.

Approach: I work primarily from Cognitive Behavioral Therapy theory though am trained in Dialectic Behavioral Therapy and therefore draw heavily on a Mindfulness approach.  I work with mothers/parents to reduce stress, improve parenting and relationship skills, and thrive in all aspects of their lives.  My practice is not limited to parents only.  I work with clients ages 6 years and up on issues including depression, anxiety, work stress, life transitions, grief, loss, and addiction.   I believe that my clients are wise and intuitive and thus have their answers within.  By working together we will uncover and craft meaningful path forward!

Insurance:  I am paneled with Blue Cross/ Blue Shield, Pacific Source, Moda, and Aetna.  My billing service will contact you to obtain insurance information, verify your benefits, and then submit claims.  I suggest checking into coverage even if your carrier is not listed above, as I find that I am paneled with some additional plans due to changing contracts within insurance companies.

Scheduling: I schedule sessions with clients in the office on Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursdays.   I ask for 24-hours prior notice if you need to cancel or change the time of an appointment, otherwise you will be charged a missed session fee.   I will make reasonable efforts to reschedule sessions, which are canceled in a timely manner.
