Frequently Asked Questions
Do you offer telehealth sessions?
Yes, I do. You can learn more about these sessions on the Telehealth Sessions page.
What happens during a complimentary 15-minute consult?
A phone or video call consult is your opportunity to ask any remaining questions you have about my practice and process. We can discuss the reasons you are seeking therapy. At the end of the consult, you and I can talk about the next steps you’d like to take.
What can I expect to achieve in therapy?
In our sessions, we focus on recognizing what happened to you, and what has happened to your community. You will identify your current coping abilities, survival strategies and learn more about mechanisms of trauma with me. You will develop your own unique wellness skills and tools by employing your own strength and gifts. You are going to further explore what happened to you and process your past experiences with the approach most suited to you.
Do you accept insurance?
Yes, I am in-network with OHP, Cigna, Regence, PacificSource, Providence, Moda Health, Blue Cross Blue Shield and Kaiser Permanente.
What are your fees?

What if I cannot afford your full fee?
I have some appointments available on a sliding scale for clients who cannot afford the full fee. We can talk about this more in the complimentary 15-minute consult.
