Services & Fees
We specialize in the assessment and treatment of psychological disorders involving depression, anxiety, trauma, and emotion regulation. We currently offer individual assessments and therapy.
Our services start with a comprehensive initial assessment. The initial assessment includes one or two sessions in which a clinician asks you a variety of questions about the problems you are currently experiencing, other possible symptoms that might be relevant, and your background and history in order to make decisions about appropriate treatment options. The results of the assessment and any resulting treatment recommendations are shared with you in a feedback session. If the assessment reveals difficulties that may be effectively addressed by treatment services we offer at our clinic, then we would discuss a recommended treatment plan at our clinic with you. Referrals to other local mental health care providers may also be made when the results of the assessment indicate that your needs would be better met by services or interventions other than those we provide at our clinic.
Individual psychotherapy is available to adolescents and adults who are experiencing a variety of mental health symptoms. We specialize in time-limited interventions that use principles from cognitive behavior therapy (CBT) and behavioral activation (BA). Individual psychotherapy typically includes one 50-minute session per week for 12-16 weeks, where you work collaboratively with your therapist to identify problematic patterns, learn new coping strategies, and improve mood and functioning. Clients typically complete activities or exercises in between sessions in order to develop skill and independence in dealing with difficulties and improving their quality of life. Specific arrangements regarding the length and frequency of sessions may vary across clients and are collaboratively negotiated with your therapist. We provide evidence-based treatment for a variety of psychological disorders, including depression, panic disorder, agoraphobia, social anxiety, generalized anxiety disorder, OCD, PTSD, phobias, and trauma. Individual psychotherapy services are supervised by Drs. Crystal Dehle, Melynda Casement, and Heather Scott.
Fees for clinic services are established using a sliding scale that is based on income. Fees for assessment services and treatment sessions range from $10 to $50 and are due at the time of service. We do not bill insurance. Currently enrolled UO students, active service members, and military veterans pay the minimum fee for assessment and psychotherapy ($10).
We are committed to serving all individuals, especially those who typically have limited access to mental health care services, and we never turn anyone away for a lack of funds.
