As more of us become vaccinated, including children, I have now been providing both in-person and virtual services. I am using a HIPAA-approved platform, Doxy.me for virtual sessions. I can accommodate multiple people at one time. For in-person sessions, all people are required to wear masks. When we talk, we can decide which method is best for you. Stay safe!
On another note, I will be retiring in June, 2022. Until then, I will be continuing to work with current clients and will take on new clients who expect a shorter-term treatment. I will be identifying colleagues who can take over for me with families who continue to need psychological services after my retirement.
I am a licensed clinical psychologist providing therapy, evaluation, and consultation to children, adolescents, families, and schools. I have been in private practice in Portland since 1985. I worked as a school psychologist in several districts in the Portland area for 35 years and recently retired from that part of my work to focus on my private practice. I was also an adjunct professor at Lewis & Clark College’s Graduate School of Education and Counseling for 40 years. I am covered by most insurance plans, although I don’t take the Oregon Health Plan.
I work with both parents and children, using behavioral and cognitive techniques, including Collaborative Problem Solving, to address issues faced by many families–non-compliance, anger, anxiety, and depression. With my extensive experience in schools, I can help families navigate special education issues. I can also provide psycho-educational assessments to replace or supplement public or private school evaluations. My location in NE Portland provides easy access to families in the Alameda, Hollywood, Irvington, and other nearby neighborhoods.
