How Can We Support You?

Who is Agate Psychotherapy?

Agate Psychotherapy is a group of like-minded independent practitioners who offer individually tailored, collaborative, relational psychotherapy to adults, couples, adolescents, children, and families in Portland, Oregon.


Therapists at Agate share common values including: equity, acceptance, connection, and humility. In demonstration of these values we strive to provide a non-judgmental, safe, and compassionate environment that supports each client as a whole person: physical, spiritual, emotional, social, and somatic well-being. 

As graduates of Lewis and Clark College, therapists at Agate have been provided an education that integrates modern modalities, evidence-based practices, advanced clinical training, and an ever-present commitment to professional development.

At this time, we are not in-network providers on insurance panels. We can provide you with a reimbursement invoice to be submitted to your insurance company. You will want to confirm with your insurance company out of network eligibility coverage.

Meet the Independent Practitioners

Nancy Hess
LPC, RLT Therapist

I believe we feel better when we sense we are seen, heard, and known in our important relationships.  


I work with couples to support  authenticity, growth, and connection.  Through looking at relational patterns, core beliefs, attachment styles, and the way our bodies and minds respond to stress, I support clients to become more resourced and connected so that they can create relationships that are rich and meaningful.

“I am because we are.”—Ubuntu


I believe in the utmost importance of relationship with self, friends, family, partners, lovers, community, and the spaces we occupy. 

My intention is to foster an authentic connection in which I can join you on your journey of self-compassion and growth. There is no one approach that fits all. You and I will work together to develop a therapeutic relationship that provides you with the support you need to actualize your goals. 

Taylor Wolf

Personal connection is the focus of my relational therapeutic approach.


I aim to join with your experience and search for stability in chaos. I strive to listen; to support you in enhancing your relationships and personal awareness. By expanding skills and harnessing curiosity, I hope that your work will allow for a greater sense of clarity. Together we will explore your evolving self and relationships by helping you engage personal strength and balance.
