FAQ

What does holistic mean?

When I state that I work from a holistic framework, what I am referring to is my approach of taking into account the entirety of a person (i.e. social health, emotional health, physical health, and mental health) rather than simply focusing on the physical symptoms an individual is experiencing.

Do you accept insurance?

At the moment, you may be able to submit claims to your insurance to get reimbursement for the fees you have paid.  In this style of claim, I am considered an Out-Of-Network Provider.  Please consult your insurance to verify eligibility.

Do you take debit/credit or PayPal?

Yes, I currently accept cash, check, debit, credit, and PayPal.  Payment is due at the time of session. If you’d like to use PayPal you must pay ahead of your session. To use PayPal go to the Schedule page.

How do you approach couples/marital therapy?

My approach to relationship counseling is all about helping you as a couple to meet your goals.  I don’t have an agenda or desired outcome in mind; I view my role as one that is supportive and accommodating of your needs and desires.

How long are your appointments? What is your availability?

Counseling sessions are 50 minutes long.  Typically, sessions may run 10 minutes longer.  If you are interested in meeting for a 90-minute session, I am happy to do so provided I am given enough notice to schedule that time for you and you are comfortable with paying for a session and a half.  My availability is flexible and I try to provide times that meet a variety of needs.  I am available Monday through Friday starting at 9am with the last offered appointment time at 7pm.  Appointments are generally scheduled for once a week. We can discuss alternate frequencies.

How does consent for a Minor/Child work?

In the State of Oregon, I am required to gain parental consent for working with anyone under the age of 14.  If the minor/child comes from a home with married parents, I require only one of the parents to sign a consent form. However, in situations where custody is shared or divorce has occurred, I legally must have BOTH parents’ signatures regardless of how custody has been determined.  If you have any questions regarding this process I would be happy to speak with you further.

What happens if I miss or cancel an appointment?

Your appointment is solely for you. I understand that emergencies happen, however if you need to cancel please call 24 hours in advance or you will be billed half the cost of your normal session fee for a no-show.  If you are going to be more than 10 minutes late, please call and let me know. If you find yourself continually needing to cancel or reschedule your appointment, I will be unable to continue reserving that time for you.
