FAQ

What is the fee per session?

My fee is $90.00 per session. **

How do I pay? What are your payment terms?

Payment for services is due at the first session, if we meet in person, or prior to the session if we meet by phone. Preferred method of payment is PayPal (all major credit cards accepted) but I will also accept a personal check. We can begin work once your check has cleared. Clients generally pay me for a package of five sessions in advance.

Do I have to pay for five sessions up front?

No. You may pay as you go, if you wish.

Would you work with someone at a discounted rate?

Yes. Don’t hesitate to contact me about sliding scale arrangements.

How long are sessions?

Sessions are generally one hour long, depending upon what is needed at the time.

How many sessions do I need?

That will depend on what you wish to accomplish with your sessions and what we are working on together. You will know if you are benefitting from our meetings, and we can talk about your course of action. What you need and want will become clearer as we go along. You will always remain the decision-maker regarding your work. If our work continues to be helpful to you, we will continue. If the connection proves to be a fruitful one, you may opt to stay connected longer term and touch base with me whenever you feel it would be beneficial.

Will I learn about mindfulness meditation?

Yes. Learning how to slow down the discursive mind and create space is essential for creating insight into what needs changing. It is important to have instruction so that you have a technique to work with. Otherwise, it is easy to reinforce unhealthy habits of mind. The subject of “being mindful” will be woven throughout our work.

Will you ask me to sign a contract?

I do not ask clients to sign contracts. We will evaluate together what will be of benefit as we go along and proceed accordingly. It would be beneficial for you to be willing to make a 3 month commitment. The most valuable part of what happens in our process, happens in “relationship“.

Do you accept medical insurance?

No medical insurance covers healing and mindfulness coaching.

What would it be worth to you to know that you can speak with an experienced, knowledgeable, and caring person at your convenience and from the comfort of your home?
