I retired from clinical practice in August, 2016. If you are a past client and would like any help with a referral to a new therapist, please contact me at





Rick Tangeman, M.S.W.

I find it an ongoing privilege to be involved in the work individuals and couples choose to do in my office. I believe my role is to create a safe and collaborative environment that allows clients to look honestly at themselves. Then, based on each person's strengths, they can develop a plan that can guide them to the healing and growth they are seeking in their lives.

Clinical Training
I hold a Masters in Social Work from Portland State University, since 1986. I am a certified IMAGO therapist and I receive ongoing advanced training in couples/marital counseling, sex therapy, EMDR, and individual therapy.

Professional Affiliations
I am a current member of the following associations:

  • National Association of Social Workers
  • American Mental Health Alliance - Oregon
  • Institute for Imago Relationship Therapy

My specialties include couples/marital counseling, sexual problems (dysfunction, desire differences) sex addictions, as well as depression and anxiety disorders.


I am available for appointments the following days:

  • Monday
  • Tuesday
  • Wednesday
  • Friday
  • Early evening hours available on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday

Please call for availability.

My fee for an individual is $140 and for couples is $150 per 50 minute session. I accept payment by cash, check, VISA or MasterCard.

I do accept insurance and work with many insurance companies, however, if you intend to use insurance please contact them regarding mental health coverage of your policy. You will need to find out:

  1. Is pre-authorization required?
  2. Is the problem bringing you to therapy covered?
  3. Do they cover the services provided by Rick Tangeman, Licensed Clinical Social Worker
  4. How many sessions are allowed?
  5. What is your deductible and co-payment amounts (if applicable)
  6. Do they require treatment plans to be filed after a certain number of sessions?
