Whether you’re coping with the effects of mental health disorders or overcoming other challenges, consider getting support from a mental health professional online. Finding in-person treatment can be challenging due to transportation issues or a lack of available providers. With a platform like BetterHelp, access to mental health care can be more convenient and flexible.

With BetterHelp, you can work with counseling psychologists, marriage and family therapists, and other professionals from the comfort of your home at a time that works for you. This flexibility can make treatment more accessible for anyone with a busy schedule like a college student pursuing a doctoral degree or a busy working parent trying to avoid burnout. 

BetterHelp does not have medical doctors or nurse practitioners at this time, so providers cannot prescribe medication, but the clinical psychologists and other licensed mental health professionals on the platform have at least a master's degree and extensive experience with clinical psychology. 

Whether you need help coping with the symptoms of a mental illness or want to understand human behavior better, therapy can help. If you’re looking for an online therapist, OR has many options available. The counselors and therapists listed below are licensed to provide online therapy across the Beaver State.

I am a Licensed Professional Counselor practicing in Portland, Oregon since 2012. I work with individuals on a wide range of issues including depression, anxiety, gender and sexuality, life transitions, stress management, and relationship matters. I use empathy, compassion, and openness to help my client's feel comfortable and confident in their decision to address difficulties in their lives and create fulfilling paths for the future. I believe that counseling is most effective when the client and therapist work together to identify strengths and areas of opportunity in an effort to create a richer life experience for the client. I believe that it is important to use treatments and techniques that have been carefully researched and found effective, so I take an evidence-based approach to therapy. I have in-depth training in cognitive behavioral therapy and dialectical behavior therapy, and experience using mindfulness, solution-focused therapy, and motivational interviewing. I pull from each of these domains to create a therapy experience that is tailored to the needs of each individual I work with. I hold a B.A. in Psychology from Arizona State University and an M.A. in Counseling Psychology from Pacific University. I have specialized training in working with LGBTQ individuals and in trauma-informed care. I have varied experience including work with youth and adults, mandated clients, community mental health, and private practice. I look forward to working with you!

Frequently asked questions (FAQs)

Some commonly asked questions can be found below.

How much does a therapist cost?

Mental health professionals can differ in price. Forbes found that the average cost of in-person therapy in the US is around $100 to $200 per hour. Pricing can also vary based on your location. 

BetterHelp offers payment plans of $60 to $90 per session, charged monthly in a lump sum. You can also take advantage of this pricing on one of BetterHelp's sister platforms, like ReGain for couples or TeenCounseling for teens aged 13 to 19.

Many therapists may be upfront about their pricing and whether or not they take health insurance from the beginning. Additionally, some in your area may offer a sliding scale plan to allow those with lower incomes to pay less for therapy. However, services online can often save individuals a few hundred dollars per month.

How do I know if I should get a therapist?

Mental health services and mental health providers may help you navigate various concerns. You do not need a diagnosis or condition to attend therapy; You can discuss grief, relationship concerns, stress, or life changes and ask for general advice. A counselor may help you gain power over your life and emotions while you navigate day-to-day experiences.

Mental health issues don't always present as a crisis. Many professionals provide talk therapy and support for life transitions, skills learning, relationship problems, or life coaching. Online therapy sessions in Oregon can allow clients seeking therapy to experience professional help through video, phone, or live chat sessions without commuting to an office.

Does insurance cover therapy?

Different counseling services can vary in cost. Therapists must apply to accept insurance through insurance companies, which may take time and money, so not every therapist offers services through insurance. If you cannot find a therapist that accepts your plan, BetterHelp may be cheaper than visiting an in-person therapist.

Is online therapy safe?

Online therapy through BetterHelp and its sister platforms is safe. Therapists are licensed, experienced, and vetted before being contracted with the platform. If you experience any concerns with your therapist, you change your counselor through the platform or app at any time.
