Sliding Scale Affordable Therapy $50 and Under

Below are therapists in the Portland-area that provide affordable counseling services based on a sliding scale. If you choose not to use insurance and would rather pay out of pocket, the therapists below have committed to charging as little as $50 per session. Some counselors slide as low as $20 per session. There are many different reasons for choosing to pay out of pocket for therapy services. You may not have insurance or don't want to bother with your insurance coverage or have any medical record of counseling services. Finding a sliding scale therapist also makes sense if you have insurance but your deductible for mental health benefits is too high.

Sam Freshner

Licensed Professional Counselor Intern

I became a counselor to be there for people in need. We are loosing too many people to suicide. People often view depression, PTSD, and anxiety as "weakness." This is so far from the truth..these things are "real" but they do not have to be "forever." My ultimate goal is for "you" to be empowered.

Brad Poser, MS, CRC

Licensed Professional Counselor Intern

Everybody struggles with feelings of self worth or discouragement. Whether from personal loss, social difficulties or bumps in our relationships, it's easy to forget these emotions are a natural part of the human experience. It's even harder to remember it's okay to ask for help when overwhelmed.
