Affordable Therapy in Oregon
Before your first appointment
In the Weeds offers free, 20-minute phone consultations before your first session. During the consultation, we’ll discuss:
Your hopes and expectations for therapy
Questions or concerns about In the Weeds or the therapeutic process
Developing a working patient/therapist relationship
Anything else you would like to address
When you make an appointment, you are buying that time slot. If you’re unavailable to keep an appointment, a 48-hour cancellation notice is required or you will be responsible for the full payment.
For the health and safety of the community, all sessions are currently conducted via telehealth.
Please note, In the Weeds does not take insurance.
In the Weeds does accept OHP Medicaid (Health Share of Oregon only) on a case by case basis

**Groups meet once weekly over a 10-week period. Time and day TBD by each new cohort once the group is full. Two 50min 1:1 sessions are part of the package. This is a CLOSED group, which means new members cannot join once sessions have started. Participants MUST commit to the entire 10-week period; those who do not complete the course are still responsible for payment in full.
**Please note: I offer a 20 percent discount to those who pay for the entire course up front.
Not everyone who seeks treatment can afford to pay for it. In the Weeds offers a sliding scale payment model so you can reclaim your life without breaking the bank. Limited availability for reduced fee and supportive fee. If you need either please let me know when you contact me and we can work out the details prior to meeting.
Why Sliding Scale?
In the Weeds is committed to challenging the classist and capitalistic structures deeply ingrained in our society. Using a privilege-based sliding scale is one small way to combat systemic oppression and provide care for those who need it most. This policy is also geared toward realizing personal and economic justice at a local level.
I offer a regular fee, a reduced fee, and a supportive fee for each service.
A regular fee helps In the Weeds prosper while serving others with limited resources.
A reduced fee helps In the Weeds cover its basic operating costs.
A supportive fee helps In the Weeds hold and support you when you need it most.
All of these payment methods are acceptable ways of participating.
Consider paying more on the scale if you:
Own the home you live in or pay rent comfortably
Have investments, savings accounts, retirement accounts, or inherited money
Travel recreationally outside of Oregon
Have access to family money and resources in times of need
Work part time by choice
Have a relatively high degree of earning power due to level of education, gender privilege, racial privilege, or class background. Even if you are not currently exercising your earning power, I ask you to recognize this as a choice.
Consider paying less on the scale if you:
Are a person who experiences racism directly, or via systemic oppression
Are a Brown, Black, Indigenous, or otherwise non-white person
Are transgender and experience trans-related discrimination and/or violence regularly
Are gay/queer and experience related discrimination and/or violence regularly
Have medical expenses not covered by insurance
Have medical expenses, been denied work, or experience discrimination related to ableism
Are eligible for public assistance
Have immigration-related expenses
Are a sex worker who experiences occupational discrimination (personal or legislative)
Are an unpaid community organizer
Are a returning citizen who has been denied work due to incarceration history
Are supporting children or have other dependents
Are an elder with limited financial support
