How Does it Work and What Does it Cost?

Counseling Services

I work with individuals and couples age 20 and up. Counseling is completely confidential; however there are exceptions mandated by law that concern your safety and safety of others. For more information on confidentiality, contact Diana at diana@savvylifeskills.com.

The first counseling appointment usually is 90 minutes. Subsequent sessions are approximately 50 minutes. I accept many health insurance plans where you are responsible for the copay only. I also am an Employee Assistance Provider (EAP). Many employers offer this service where you have a limited number of free sessions. Contact your health insurance company or employer to determine your benefits.

Some people prefer not to use their health insurance for mental health services to avoid dealing with deductibles and to avoid having a diagnosis in their permanent health insurance record. In addition, many managed care companies restrict the number of sessions available.

If you decide to access counseling outside your insurance plan, the cost of the first 90-minute appointment is $140.00. Subsequent sessions are $100.00 per session. I do not accept credit cards. Payment is due at each session.

My office is located near the interchange of Highways I-5 and 217. It is convenient for Tigard, Tualatin, Beaverton, Lake Oswego, Wilsonville, and SW Portland.
