As a licensee of The Oregon Board of Licensed Professional Counselors & Therapists, I will abide by its Code of Ethics. To maintain my license I am required to participate in annual continuing education and professional development. In this coursework, I keep current in subject matter that is relevant to my practice. At times, I may substitute professional supervision with another licensed therapist who has been approved in the role of supervisor by the State of Oregon.
All information you or your child shares in a counseling session remains confidential unless:
- You have signed a release form for disclosure.
- You or someone else is in danger or threat to you, self, or another.
- Physical abuse of a child or elderly person is involved.
- If subpoenaed by a court of law.
Sometimes parents need to talk outside of regularly scheduled appointments.
I will do my best to return a call for a brief conversation, but not a counseling session. I also ask that parents do not communicate sensitive and confidential information through e-mails.
My fee for service is $140.00 for a 60 minute session. This fee applies to every session, whether I am seeing a parent, parent(s) and child, or the family. The first appointment I will meet with only the parent(s) to do an intake and assessment to determine “fit.” At the second session I will meet with the child in the 40-45 minute block and then meet with parent(s) in the remaining time. This will be the structure for the majority of our time together.
Counseling appointments are arranged on a weekly basis. If we determine that more frequent sessions are needed, we can discuss this at the time, and as my schedule and your schedule allows.
