About Amy Kaplan
Hello and thank you for your interest in my private practice, Talk It Out Oregon. If you are looking for a therapist extensive experience and training, who specializes in helping people who may have depression, you have come to the right place.
I received a BA in Psychology with Distinction from Penn State University in 1994 and a Masters Degree in Social Work from California State University, Long Beach in 1997. I am trained in EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing).
My work experience in the mental health field over the last 2 decades has focused on psychotherapy and case management in outpatient clinics, schools, residential treatment and private practice. The vast majority of my patients have experienced Depression in various forms, and I have honed my treatment skills and knowledge in this area.
Where you may find challenges, I can find hope and strength. Working with me, you will benefit from experience and evidenced-based treatment, combined with the healing nature of a professional, therapeutic relationship.

MY TREATMENT FOCUS
I specialize in the treatment of Depression, Anxiety and Trauma through psychotherapy. Through our work together, you can learn how to use inner strengths to lead a more balanced life.
Have you experienced hopelessness, a lack of enjoyment in life's activities, low energy, or sadness over a period of time? Do you want to feel better and get out of your funk? Regardless of your circumstances, you are not alone and I am here to help.
I conduct sessions using a secure, online therapy platform, which is convenient and effective. If you prefer to meet in person, I do have a limited number of in-person appointments available at my office in Tualatin, Oregon.
Psychotherapy may seem overwhelming or intimidating, but I will be right by your side and help you feel comfortable in the process.
Do you take insurance?
I do not bill insurance companies directly. Payment is made by credit card at the above rates at the time services are rendered. I utilize the secure payment app Ivy Pay.
If you have private health insurance and would to submit an out-of-network claim, please first check with your insurance company regarding your deductibles and out-of-network coverage, as requirements vary from company to company. You can use a company called "Better" to help you get reimbursed by your insurance.
