Sliding Scale Therapy
My practice is based on the belief that everyone in Portland should have access to affordable, professional therapy. I strive to make it possible for you to visit on a weekly basis, if desired, without undue worry about expense. The initial consultation is complimentary, and is useful to determine whether we are a good fit going forward. The weekly cost is based on a sliding scale if you are not able to pay the standard fee of $100. Below are my current sliding scale rates:
- Individual Therapy: $60 - $100
- Couples Counseling: $60 - $100
- Family Therapy: $60 - $100
How We Determine the Sliding Scale Fee
At the end of the initial consultation we will discuss the fee and how you plan to pay for your visits. If you would like to take advantage of the sliding scale fee, you will need to decide what an affordable fee is for you within the range I provide to you.
It is important that you attend therapy on a weekly basis for at least five weeks in a row. If you would like to come in on a bi-weekly basis we will have that discussion together after the initial five weeks. Both the therapist and client must first get into a good rhythm and avoid long lapses in time. If a client comes in every other week to begin with, it is tricky to stay focused and integrate therapy as a part of your life.
