Online Psychotherapy Services (serving California & Oregon)

If you would like to find out more about me, my work, or how I may help support you, please email me at alyd.mft@gmail.com or via https://alyd-mft.clientsecure.me/.

Please know that it may take me more than week or two to get back to you. Know you are welcome to email me more than once if you did not receive a reply. I typically have a waitlist, as I intentionally keep my practice small.

A (free) consultation is required prior to the onset of services and typically lasts about 20-30 minutes.

I am a cash-pay practice, meaning I am not paneled as an in-network provider with medicare or other insurances and I do not directly bill insurance for therapy services. I can provide a superbill for clients with out-of-network benefits but ask that you inform me of you this in advance.

In some circumstances, I offer reduced, sliding scale rates for clients with a temporary need for a limited period of time.

I provide one-time or ongoing clinical consultation for licensed mental health professionals interested in neuro-affirming assessment, differential diagnosis of Autism, ADHD, and CPTSD, neuro-inclusive treatment adaptations using polyvagal theory, creative expressive arts, and other modalities noted on my website as areas of expertise.

ADHD/Autism Assessments for Adult Women

I provide informal neuro-affirming ADHD and autism assessments and diagnostic evaluations for existing clients only upon request. Using the Neuro-Affirming Autism Screening Tool I developed with my colleague, Candice Christiansen, and a variety of other standardized assessment tools, I enjoy helping women better understand & recognize the gifts and challenges of ADHD and Autistic neuro-types. Assessments are offered via individual sessions (billed at my regular rates). I also offer a quarterly, 8-week group/class exploring ADHD and Autism diagnosis with my supervisee, Caroline Wessling, AMFT, APCC.
