Payment

I welcome conversations around finances and invite you to discuss any concerns or questions you may have about my fees with me over the phone or at an initial session.  I offer a sliding fee scale that ranges from $60 – $100.  I accept all major credit cards, cash, and checks.

I am not currently in-network with any insurance companies, but I can provide you with a receipt for services (a superbill) to seek reimbursement utilizing your out-of-network benefits.  Many of my clients are unsure if they have out-of-network coverage, and if so, what it is.  It’s incredibly easy to find out, and in fact, I can find out for you!  If you simply give me a call and provide me with your insurance information, I’d be happy to call on your behalf to let you know whether or not sessions would be covered utilizing your out-of-network benefits.  In many cases sessions are covered, and my clients end up paying about the same amount as seeing an in-network provider.

All fees represented on my website and sliding scale reflect a cash discount when paying by cash or check. Due to additional processing fees, payment by credit/debit card will not be at the discounted rate but will be adjusted higher by 3.5%.  All fees will be payable at the beginning of each session unless otherwise agreed upon in advance.

A 24 hour notice must be given for cancellation of any appointment, otherwise the client will be responsible for payment in full.  In case of emergencies or illness exceptions can be made.

If a client’s payment by check is returned due to insufficient funds, the client will be charged for all NSF charges and penalty fees.

I received my Master’s degree in counseling from Multnomah University in 2015.  Currently I am a Licensed Professional Counselor Intern, R3926, and my supervisor is Christopher Cleaver, LPC# C3414.  My office is located in the Tigard/SW Portland area.
